Emory's support options for caregivers

Fifty percent of respondents in a 2010 Emory University needs assessment expressed concern about being able to balance work and caring for a loved one, such as a spouse, partner, parent, or adult child. Now, help is available through the Emory Caregiver Support Program. Throughout the last six years, Emory has built a variety of benefits and programs to assist employee caregivers with the financial, emotional and physical challenges of caring for a loved one while working.

Caregiver Support addresses a wide range of needs and situations, ranging from researching transportation to doctor's appointments and understanding leave options to taking advantage of caregiver educations provided on campus.

Quitting Smoking - Making a difficult decision

After spending 15 years as a smoker, Stephanie Vaughn, an employee at Emory Oxford College was faced with an important long-term decision when she learned of a health condition which required surgery. Making matters even more difficult, her surgeon informed her that she must quit smoking prior to the operation in order for it to be successful. This was not the news she wanted to hear as a long-term smoker, but, nonetheless, action was required. Stephanie had to quit in order to move forward and get her health back on track.

To begin the process, Stephanie met with a case worker at her surgeon's office for smoking cessation coaching, tips and resources and then created her list of pros and cons. "It wasn't easy and the first week was the worst," explains Stephanie.
