Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Everyone needs help from time to time dealing with life's challenges.
Often it's not the unexpected that catches us off guard. It's more likely to be the predictable events and transitions in our lives---things like starting a new career, marriage, the birth of a child, the challenges teenagers present, caring for aging parents or buying a house---that find us unprepared. When you feel like you need help dealing with a situation that is troubling you, contact your EAP provider - Kepro!

- November 2019: Webinar
The Sandwich Generation - Meeting the Challenges of Multigenerational CaregivingLooking at a few common family dynamics-from elders who feel anger and shame at losing their independence and role in society, to children who are confused, frustrated and embarrassed by a grandparent’s decline-caregivers have a lot to worry about. As stress increases, caregivers should know how to identify the triggers that indicate that they may need more help and external service providers.
- November 2019: Tip Sheet
Self-Care for the CaregiverMillions of Americans take care of an older adult on top of their regular responsibilities. Whether you volunteered for the responsibility or had to dive into it by necessity, caring for an aging parent is enormously challenging. You are doing something that is possibly one of the most meaningful things you can do, but you won’t be able to sustain providing care if you don’t take care of yourself.
