How GW's Wellbeing Hotline Helps:

The Wellbeing Hotline provides personalized matches to providers nationwide—child and adult care, schools and academic programs, attorneys and financial counselors, health resources and more.  Our Hotline prescreens every provider before they are referred and provides you with detailed, personalized referrals that contain comprehensive information on licensing and accreditation status, programs and services, availability, hours of operation, costs, discounts, special accommodations, staff credentials, staff to care recipient ratios (if applicable), and any other specific information that you request.

Your Wellbeing Hotline specialist will also provide helpful educational materials that are practical and easy-to-read—and that contain tips and checklists to help you evaluate and select the most appropriate, high-quality providers and facilities.

GW's Wellbeing Hotline can save you and your family members money by providing access to  an online Discount Center, that provides discounts on hundreds of brand-name products and services nationwide.
