At the MIT Work-Life Center, we understand that caring for an aging loved one can be challenging.
At times, it can feel like you’re lost at sea without a compass. But the right guidance and support, can help you navigate such challenges … and even leave you with some immensely rewarding experiences.
The Work-Life Center has developed comprehensive benefits for those who are currently caring for aging loved ones and those who may be doing so in the future. Our goal is to provide you and your family with solutions to those caregiving challenges so that you can focus on being there for your loved one.
