Family First and MetLife Legal Plans join forces to take on caregiver burnout

Family First , which offers personalized solutions to solve caregiving challenges, announced a collaboration with MetLife Legal Plans, the country’s largest provider of legal benefits, to provide support for employees navigating the emotional, social, clinical, and financial challenges of caring for a loved one.

Family First works with caregivers to solve their most urgent and complex caregiving needs. Through this collaboration, MetLife Legal Plans enrollees and their families have ongoing access to Expert Care Teams comprised of professionally accredited nurses, Harvard-trained physicians, social workers, and mental health professionals, backed by industry-leading AI and an expert-authored and curated content library. Care Teams uncover and work with the entire family ecosystem to resolve the most complex challenges. Family First’s comprehensive approach addresses mental health, family dynamics, logistics, legal issues, financial challenges, difficult decision-making, and other needs.

“Employees have experienced daily and ongoing struggles of managing doctor’s appointments, medication adherence, grocery shopping, finances, and more for loved ones—while also working and caring for themselves without asking for help. We are proud to team up with Family First to support employee caregivers with unlimited access to teams of dedicated care experts. We’re helping to create a meaningful impact in their lives and the lives of those in their care.” – Loi Stoddard-Graham, VP, MetLife Legal Plans.

“Caregiving impacts every aspect of the caregiver’s life in profound ways. It creates complicated and multi-faceted challenges that cannot be solved simply with backup care. We are honored to join forces with MetLife Legal Plans to empower family caregivers to take back control of their lives by providing the personalized, expert caregiving solutions they need to address their unique challenges.” – Evan Falchuk, CEO & chairman of Family First.
