TEMPE, Ariz., Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Total Care Connections, one of the largest home care providers in Arizona and Colorado, recently expanded its benefits package again with the addition of both paid pregnancy disability leave and paid parental leave. These two new benefits should serve the company’s nearly 400 employees and their families by offering up to six weeks of paid leave for new mothers after giving birth and up to two weeks of paid leave for new parents. The paid parental leave program is also available for employees who foster or adopt a child.
Daniel Stringer, CEO of Total Care Connections, said, “Our mission at Total Care Connections is not only to be the best home care agency for our customers, but also to serve and care for the members of our crew. We want to support our team during the birth, fostering and/or adoption of a child to ensure that each new parent has the resources they need.
National statistics on companies offering paid parental leave are staggering. Unfortunately, according to the New York Times, “many hourly or low-wage workers cannot afford to take unpaid time off – and few get paid time off. Only 4% of the lowest paid workers in the private sector have paid leave, compared to 27% of professionals. The United States is one of only two countries in the world that does not have a national paid family leave policy. According to Danielle Stringer, Director of Nursing at Total Care Connections, “We feel it is our personal responsibility to be part of the change needed, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand the care of our team. now including paid parental leave.”
The company has been increasing its benefits for several years. They believe that “the quality of care our customers receive will always be a reflection of the quality of care and commitment our employees receive in the course of their work here”. Total Care Connections also provides health, dental, vision, disability insurance, life insurance, a 401K and financial wellness program, paid sick leave to include time off for mental health reasons, and over the next weeks, the company is launching an employee relief grant program designed to provide up to $1,000 in grants to their employees who are facing qualified financial hardship.
Total Care Connections employs caregivers, CNAs, and nurses across Arizona and Colorado to care for thousands of clients and their families who need in-home assistance to live safely and independently. . The company is one of the fastest growing home care agencies nationwide and was recently listed on the INC 5000 list for the 7e consecutive year.
