Elder Care Consultation

EAP will connect employees with reliable services and resources for both the senior needing support and the caregiver including information about: caregiver resources, home care options, classes for those helping older relatives or friends, navigating Medicaid/Medicare/Social Security and other benefits.

Mediation

When people disagree with one another, there are options besides fighting or walking away. Mediation and conflict resolution can help. EAP partners with Child and Family Services Center for Resolution and Justice to provide mediation.  In more than 75% of the cases mediated, parties reach agreement, avoiding stress and costly legal expenses. Workplace mediation and conflict resolution can serve as a proactive approach to preventing litigation and promoting a healthier work environment.

Smoking Cessation

C&FS EAP provides referrals to best practice classes, coaching and cessation related services, via the NYS Quitline.
