Practical Wellbeing Support

Modern problems call for modern solutions.

Practical Wellbeing Support

In the day-to-day lives of working people, situations arise that pull their attention away from their jobs.  Whether it is a child, parent or loved one that needs care, an upcoming relocation, travel, housing maintenance, legal or financial matters, or something else, a troubling issue can be a distraction or even cause absences from work.

Practical support or “work-life” consultation and research can help employees address situations in their lives and stay focused on their jobs when they need to be. With Workplace Options’ practical support programmes, they can get information on a nearly limitless range of topics including:

  • Dependent Care: child care and parenting; adult care and aging; and care for individuals with a special need or disability
  • Information Services: a variety of day-to-day concerns such as home maintenance, travel, housing or relocation
  • Wellness: fitness centres and alternative medicine
  • Financial: credit and debt, budgeting, taxation, benefits, mortgages, insurance
  • Legal: consumer rights, matrimonial law, traffic issues, civil litigation, tenancy, wills and probate

Additional details about some of our practical wellbeing support products and services are included below.
