Emergency/Back-Up Family Care

Give your loved one the next best thing to being there…give them a KinderCare provider. Teen and adult children, spouses/domestic partners, parents, grandparents, and in-laws may all qualify for this benefit.

The KinderCare Adult/Elder Care provider network consists of contracted, pre-screened home care agencies. When you can’t be with your loved one, it’s natural that you want only the best care for him or her. That’s why all the providers in KinderCare’s Adult/Elder Care network conduct comprehensive employment screenings, background checks, and health and safety training with all of their staff — and why KinderCare is committed to selecting quality agency and caregiver services.
