Work-Life Resources

Michigan Medicine provides a number of resources and tools promoting work-life flexibility at Michigan. For more information, you can visit the Work-Life Resource Center main page.

​Child Care Resources

​The University of Michigan Children's Centers provide our faculty, staff and students with the highest quality early education and care for their children. Our professional staff is committed to providing a supportive, challenging and holistic environment for young children enrolled in our programs.​ More information can be found at the Child Care Resources page.

Elder Care​

​Elder Care responsibilities often come up unexpectedly and can lead to complications with work and family. The Work-Life Resource Center can suggest community resources to help you care for your aging relative, identify counseling services and support groups for caregivers, and guide you to finding housing options for seniors. Resources are also available nationwide to assist those who are long-distance caregivers.​ For more information, please visit the Elder Care homepage.

​Lactation Resources

​More information, including a list of all Lactation Rooms available across Central and Michigan Medicine Campuses, can be found at the Lactation Resources main page.


Telecommuting is a work arrangement that enables a staff member to work at home from another off-site location. Telecommuting may be appropriate for only some staff members and jobs.

​U-M Family Helper

​Family Helpers are current U-M students, or U-M benefits-eligible retirees, who offer partial-week, occasional or short-term services (such as weekend babysitting) in the family homes of current U-M faculty, staff, and students. Services offered may include babysitting or child care, tutoring or lessons, elder care, house sitting, yard work, pet care, and housekeeping. ​ For more information, visit the U-M Family Helpers main page.
