Larkin’s Eldercare Services

Larkin’s eldercare services put you at the forefront of the leave and benefits arena. Though a relatively recent addition to benefit offerings, its significance is undeniable. According to AARP, “32% of employees have left a job to take care of an older family member with daily living needs. And almost 25% of workers have quit work to take care of an ill or disabled spouse, partner or extended family member.”

Larkin has partnered with Ways and Wane to offer clients and their employees this invaluable service. It complements our family leave benefits, allowing employees to access eldercare support without needing time off. Such eldercare services assist employees before, during, or after a leave of absence.

Family Care Concierge

As with eldercare, our family care concierge services emphasize your dedication to assisting employees in their crucial family roles. This service allows your employees to support their children and other family members who depend on them for care. By partnering with Larkin, your employees can better address their care responsibilities while remaining engaged and focused at work.



Digital Care Advisors provide your employees with essential resources for childcare/daycare and eldercare, as well as guidance on financial aid through corporate, state, or federal tax credits and programs.

Personal Care Advisors offer your employees the opportunity to work with master’s-level professionals, receiving coaching and resources tailored to address their care requirements. This includes backup care, kids’ camps, afterschool programs, emotional support, and beyond.

Ongoing Education and Support

In addition to key insights/trends and forward-looking benefit services, our highly experienced Compliance Team (over 50 years of combined experience) helps to ensure that you’re always up to date and educated on state and federal news. To keep you informed, we deliver essential updates through our webinars and regular compliance newsletters, covering key trends, pressing issues, and the latest legislative changes.

These sessions present your leave and disability management report, facilitating deeper understanding, assessment, and future planning.
