According to the United States Census Bureau, the U.S. population over 65 has grown five times faster than the overall population in the past 100 years. According to the 2020 census, this age group is now 16.8%, making up 1 in 6 people over the age of 65. These statistics are one of the reasons why support and care for this group and their families are more critical than ever.
EPIC has prioritized offerings through our employee assistance program and ‘Wellthy.’ ‘Wellthy’ provides personalized support to help employees tackle the logistical and administrative tasks of caring for their loved ones and caring for themselves as a caregiver. Here are a few Wellthy offerings:
- Finding the right in-home aide or organizing a move into an assisted care facility,
- Recommending local socialization programs,
- Setting up in-home modifications, meal delivery, and transportation
- Helping a family find the right legal resources,
- Navigating Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and Veterans’ benefits.
These programs allow our employees to obtain the resources they need for the overall wellbeing of aging family members and themselves.
For our clients, our healthcare division has partnered with various senior care professionals, including public, private, and non-profit entities. These partners help connect EPIC clients to all the resources needed to navigate the complex coverage solutions available. Our team of advisors understands the nuances of the long-term care industry and how to create the best outcomes possible for those needing these services.
Whether the focus is on our employees or clients, EPIC understands the complexities and the need for compassion and sound knowledge. Many of our employees fall into the so-called “sandwich generation,” where they are caring for children and aging parents. This can be challenging and sometimes very overwhelming. By providing guidance and resources to support the people in our lives in all stages of life, we help create an overall sense of wellbeing and balance.
This is EPICness, and it’s how we do business inside and out, taking care of our clients and employees.
