Prudential adds Wellthy, a service for caregivers, to its financial wellness portfolio

first_img WhatsApp Prudential adds Wellthy, a service for caregivers, to its financial wellness portfolio Pinterest Local NewsBusiness Facebook WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 16, 2021 Pinterestcenter_img Twitter TAGS  Twitter NEWARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 16, 2021– More than 15% of American workers report providing ongoing care for a chronically ill, disabled or elderly person, and 1 in 4 women are considering downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce because of child care and other challenges due to COVID-19. The responsibilities these caregivers bear has been heightened during the pandemic, accelerating mental health and workplace productivity issues. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210216005124/en/ Judy Dougherty, Head of Enterprise Capabilities, Prudential Financial (Photo: Business Wire) Prudential 1 ( NYSE: PRU ) is partnering with Wellthy, a leading provider in the caregiving space, to incorporate Wellthy’s suite of digital and concierge caregiving services into Prudential’s financial wellness offering. These services will help employers relieve the caregiving burden impacting their employees. The new partnership will enable Prudential to offer no-cost access to Wellthy’s digital caregiving tools, such as educational content, digital care plan creation, storage of digital caregiving documents (e.g., prescriptions, medical records, wills, etc.), access to a shared calendar to track appointments, and the ability to establish a group caregiving discussion. Wellthy’s caregiving services complement employee assistance programs by providing individuals with a digital platform to organize and manage caregiving activities, along with the option of concierge services that provide hands-on support to help relieve their caregiving burden and save them hours every week. For example, employers will have the option to pay or enable their employees to pay for a dedicated Care Coordinator to help individuals manage the logistical and administrative tasks of caring for loved ones on a family’s behalf, including:Sourcing and vetting in-home aides and child care providers.Evaluating insurance coverage for home safety modifications.Setting up meal delivery services.Identifying in-network physical therapy providers.Arranging transportation to/from appointments.Setting up calendars for appointment management.Assisting with financial claims and billing support (e.g., liaising between medical providers, hospital and Medicare).Researching local elder care attorneys specialized in estate planning. Prudential will also partner with employers to provide referrals to employees during critical moments that matter (e.g., leave of absence, birth of a new child, illness of elderly relatives) to optimize employee usage of Wellthy’s caregiving resources. “The COVID-19 pandemic has blurred the lines between work and home. It has pushed many employees into multiple and sometimes new caregiving roles that impact their ability to balance work, home and the needs of their loved ones. This balancing act is creating additional pressure on an already challenged caregiving system,” said Judy Dougherty, head of Enterprise Capabilities at Prudential Financial. “The benefits of Wellthy’s service are lower stress and improved productivity by assisting with some administrative and logistical tasks associated with caregiving, and in some cases reduced income disruption associated with unpaid leave. The addition of Wellthy to our portfolio is another way we are helping people achieve and maintain financial wellness.” For employers, the benefits of investing in caregiver support are also clear. Caregiving costs employers several thousand dollars per caregiving employee per year—on lost productivity, absences, and talent retention. “Well before the pandemic, caregiving was a serious challenge for so many Americans and we’ve remained steadfast in our commitment to lift the burden off caregivers,” said Lindsay Jurist-Rosner, CEO of Wellthy. “Our model is built on transforming family care through personalized care support that caregivers can control from an online dashboard, and we are pleased that more and more employers are seeing the value of providing their workforce with access to caregiving support.” Learn more about Prudential Financial Wellness About Prudential Financial, Inc.

Local Colorado Residents Mistake Bassnectar Festival For Earthquakes

first_imgFollowing Bassnectar‘s two-day Bass Center festival at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, residents of the Stapleton neighborhood of Commerce City–which surrounds the venue–filed a formal complain to city claiming that the bass from the concert rattled their homes. As resident Joe Quillin said in a statement to the Commerce City City Council, “I thought it was an earthquake. I looked and realized it was bass.”Quillin claimed that the board was negligent for ever issuing a permit to the notoriously loud and booming artist, angered by the fact that the city did not research the act’s music before giving the event their blessing: “To issue a permit for that kind of noise into Sunday morning is ridiculous!”Despite the anger of his constituents, Commerce City Mayor Sean Ford maintains that city imposed the most stringent ordinances possible to permit the event and refuses to denounce Bassnectar, defending the concert for staying within the outlined noise thresholds of 85dBA for treble tones and 105dBC for bass tones. Ford says that Dick’s Sporting Goods Park was established in a remote area with the understanding that the events would get loud, and cautioned anyone living in the area that noise from concerts and sporting events should be expected. “There has to be a reasonable expectation that it is going to be loud,” he said. This is not the first time Bassnectar (a.k.a. Lorin Ashton) has encountered trouble with noise ordinances in Colorado. Last year, after performing at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, local residents were so angry that they petitioned the venue to cap decibel levels below the volume where the producer usually operates, effectively banning his return to the venue. Ashton bounced back from this setback last year with the Bass Center event at Dick’s this year, so we’re sure that the producer will figure out a way to get around these latest grievances and continue to get loud in CO.[Via CBS Denver]last_img read more

Liverpool reach League Cup quarters after 10-goal thriller against Arsenal

first_imgLiverpoolLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool reached the League Cup quarter-finals in thrilling style as their incredible 5-5 draw against Arsenal was followed by a 5-4 penalty shoot-out triumph on Wednesday.Both Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Arsenal boss Unai Emery made 11 changes for the fourth round tie, but the understudies served up one of the most entertaining games of the season at Anfield.Arsenal enjoyed a memorable 6-3 League Cup quarter-final win at Liverpool in 2007, but this time they squandered multiple leads in an even more dramatic clash.In the shoot-out, Dani Ceballos’ penalty was saved by 20-year-old Irish keeper Caoimhin Kelleher before 18-year-old Curtis Jones converted the winning kick.Liverpool have won the League Cup a record eight times and they remain on course to lift the trophy for the first time since 2012.After Granit Xhaka’s astonishing outburst at Arsenal fans during Sunday’s traumatic Premier League draw with Crystal Palace, this was another body blow for Arsenal, who lost despite leading 3-1, 4-2 and then 5-4 with seconds to go.Xhaka was absent while Emery debates whether to strip the midfielder of the captaincy, but Arsenal were unable to take advantage of Liverpool’s youthful line-up.With an average age of 23 years and 122 days, it was Liverpool’s youngest starting eleven in any competition since January 2017 as teenagers Neco Williams, Harvey Elliott, Rhian Brewster and Sepp Van Den Berg all featured.Liverpool’s rookies went ahead after just six minutes as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sent over a low cross and Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi, sliding in to clear, accidently deflected it onto his knee and into the back of his own net.Yet, with all of Liverpool’s star defenders rested, the Premier League leaders were far less solid than usual and Arsenal drew level in the 19th minute.The goal came via an assist from the rarely used Mesut Ozil, who was making his only his third appearance of the season and his first since September 24.Ozil picked out Bukayo Saka in space and when his shot was saved, the unmarked Lucas Torreira slotted home despite Liverpool’s appeals for offside.– Origi heroics – Emery’s team took the lead in the 26th minute after more sloppy defending allowed Ainsley Maitland-Niles to cross and Gabriel Martinelli was on hand to fire into the roof of the net from close-range.Martinelli struck again 10 minutes later when Ozil intercepted Elliott’s loose pass to send Saka clear and he produced a low cross for the 18-year-old Brazilian forward to grab his seventh goal in seven appearances this season.James Milner reduced Liverpool’s deficit with a 43rd minute penalty after Elliott went down under minimal contact from Martinelli.Milner gifted Arsenal their fourth goal in the 54th minute when Maitland-Niles seized on his under-hit back-pass.Ozil kept the ball in play with a nimble piece of footwork and Maitland-Niles tapped into the empty net.Oxlade-Chamberlain got one back for Liverpool with a thunderous long-range drive four minutes later.And Divock Origi equalised with an even better strike in the 62nd minute as the Belgian spun sharply before blasting into the top corner from the edge of the area.But Willock restored Arsenal’s lead in the 70th minute with another contender for goal of the night, the midfielder sprinting away before unleashing a 25-yard rocket.It was only the second time Liverpool have conceded five goals in a home match in the last 66 years.Remarkably, that wasn’t the end of the scoring and Origi acrobatically volleyed Liverpool’s equaliser in stoppage-time, setting the stage for their shoot-out success.Aston Villa moved into the last eight with a 2-1 win over local rivals Wolves at Villa Park.Anwar El-Ghazi put Villa ahead and, after Patrick Cutrone’s equaliser, Ahmed Elmohamady bagged the winner.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
