Caregiving resources

ECEP provides early childhood services to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at five centers in Berkeley and Albany. They offer a safe, nurturing, stimulating environment that sparks curiosity. They teach families and educators to see and unlock the potential of each child. Their staff of highly trained childhood educators give parents peace of mind – and assists them in balancing family, school, and work.

Be Well at Work - Elder Care Program offers confidential, free assistance to UC Berkeley Faculty and Staff, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory employees who are caring for or concerned about an elder or dependent adult. 

Employee Assistance Program (EAP) helps employees and their family members find solutions to personal and work-related challenges through counseling, consultation, assessment, and referrals. All services are voluntary, confidential, and free of charge.
