ChristianaCare Partners with Wellthy to Provide Innovative Family Caregiving Support Solution to Employees
NEW YORK and WILMINGTON, Del., Dec. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wellthy, the leading caregiving support solution for employees and their families, announces a partnership with ChristianaCare, the largest health system in Delaware. Through the partnership, all benefits-eligible ChristianaCare employees will have access to Wellthy’s support to help them balance work and family caregiving responsibilities.
With nearly 1 in 5 healthcare workers quitting their job since the onset of the pandemic, employers are looking for innovative solutions that can help attract and retain talent. Family caregiving demands are on the rise, and providing support is especially critical for medical professionals, who are often caregivers at work and at home.
“Our employees, fondly called caregivers at ChristianaCare, are our most valuable resource as we work together to serve our neighbors in four states,” said Chris Cowan, senior vice president, Human Resources at ChristianaCare. “We constantly look for ways to enrich our benefits so caregivers feel well supported both at work and at home. We look forward to Wellthy having a positive impact on our caregivers.”
Wellthy makes it easy for caregivers to:
- Connect with dedicated Care Coordinators and specialized Care Advisers to help them care for the ones they love, including themselves.
- Access a Care Dashboard that acts like a project management tool to keep all planning and resources in one place.
- Connect to the resources they need and manage the complex logistics of caregiving.
Wellthy assists families with personalized care support across the full spectrum of care, including help with issues related to childcare, aging, special needs, chronic conditions, veterans support, mental health and more.
“People working in health care can face a good deal of stress on the job. Outside of work, many healthcare workers are also the go-to caregiver for family and friends. We are proud to start working with ChristianaCare, an organization that invests in and supports its caregivers,” said Lindsay Jurist-Rosner, co-founder and CEO of Wellthy. “ChristianaCare’s caregivers dedicate their lives to caring for others — we are honored to help take care of them.”
The partnership with ChristianaCare represents significant momentum for Wellthy within the healthcare industry, following its partnership with Memorial Hermann Health System.
