Employee Assistance Service (EASE)

The university is pleased to offer this important benefit as an investment in you and your family's health and well being.

Employee Assistance Program

Employee Assistance Service (EASE) is a voluntary private and confidential program provided through Center for Families and Children (CFC). This service provides counseling and community resources for benefits-eligible employees and family members to help identify problems and develop plans for resolution.

Elder Care

The elder care counselors can help you recognize when an older relative needs help, care for older relatives from a distance, talk to parents who may resist help, understand and locate housing options.

Elder care counselors are licensed social workers who have specialized training in geriatric issues and geriatric crisis intervention. A comprehensive assessment of your elder care needs and concerns will be completed.

Child Care

Whether you are an expectant parent or have children well into their teens, you will receive personalized consultation and assistance in locating child care services with the help of a child care specialist.
