How a Family Care Benefit Lowers the LOA Cost

We know that the majority of employees are caring for someone— whether that be children or older adults. And 60% of these caregiving employees report that their responsibilities impact their productivity and readiness to return to work.

Introducing the Larkin Digital Care Advisor!

To address this, we’ve rolled out a low-cost, starter-level feature for the Larkin Family Care benefit — the Digital Care Advisor. This AI-enabled desktop app offers both eldercare and childcare support, complementing your Leave of Absence benefits.

  • Eldercare: Employees can ask, “What paperwork is needed for my mom in the hospital?” The app promptly offers an action plan, including links to local power of attorney forms, discharge checklists, and advice on selecting long-term care facilities.
  • Childcare: With the specialized childcare dashboard, employees can follow a guided process or input requests like “Find a daycare in San Jose, California.” The app then generates a comprehensive action plan, highlighting premier local search tools, cost comparisons, safety ratings, and transition tips.

Two-Tiered Larkin Family Care Service

  • Basic Service — Digital Care Advisor: This AI-assisted platform offers vital resources for caregiving.
  • Premium Service — Family Care Concierge: For those needing a more personalized touch.

It’s an inexpensive, easy way to offer a childcare and eldercare benefit to your employees starting at only $.25/PEPM.

Interested in integrating the Digital Care Advisor into your LOA service? Reach out to your account manager for more information.

“Above all the benefits that we offer, this benefit has been the most meaningful to our employees.”
