Employees of Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa rely on the organization’s backup dependent care program to step in when their regular arrangements fall through—even if the dependent is not an employee’s child.
The service sends a licensed care provider to the employee’s home to look after a child or adult whose baby sitter or day care is unexpectedly closed for the day. And more employees are using the backup program for adult day care—even for parents who live out of state.
Workers who care for children, nieces, nephews, cousins, parents or grandparents can use the program up to 20 days per year per dependent.
Employees pay $15 to $30 per child or $20 a day for an adult. The organization picks up the rest, which costs it around $200,000 a year, said Michele Talka, director of comp and benefits.
