As part of UMBC’s efforts to assist with a smooth fall return to campus for staff, faculty, and graduate assistants (GAs) we have partnered with Care@Work to provide extended options for childcare, eldercare, petcare, and a host of other services.
Care@Work connects families and caregivers. It offers a flexible platform — available on mobile, desktop, and in the iPhone and Android app stores. Care@Work provides eligible employees (regular staff and faculty, Contingent II staff, and GAs) with tools to help make informed hiring decisions whenever and wherever care needs arise. With UMBC’s free Premium Membership, eligible staff, faculty, and GAs can post a caregiver request and browse through active caregivers on the site, use the Safety Center, receive newsletters filled with tips and advice, and access the wealth of care-related content in the online community. Eligible employees and GAs also have access to view full profiles and reviews, contact caregivers, purchase background checks, subsidized backup care (tiered copay schedule), and tuition discounts at participating childcare centers.
