Elder-care resources are now often included in EAP packages. Work–life services are different from the clinical activities of workplace counselling as they are not necessarily anything to do with psychological difficulties.

In this manner, they are preventative rather than curative (which is how some employers also perceive workplace counselling). Work–life services help employees: in finding and selecting quality child care, making decisions regarding adoption, negotiating and communicating with an employee’s children’s teachers, making vocational or college choices, and orchestrating the necessary resources an employee’s older adult parents may require within their communities necessary to maintain normal functioning.
