Pinch Hitter Back up Dependent and Elder Care Services

Child and Elder care services provided by New England Nanny provides high-quality, in-home, back-up dependent care on days when regular care is not available. This in-home service is available for: Your child (age 6 weeks to 13 years old) or elderly parent who is mildly ill and needs to rest and recuperate at home. The child care service is provided when your dependent child has a mildly contagious illness which would prevent attendance at his/her regular child care arrangement; or your child's school is closed due to holiday or other cancellation. For an elderly parent, elder care is available for cases of sitting, providing chores, doing light housekeeping and running errands. In addition, either service is available for a work approved function or work travel. Please be informed that there is no transportation of children or elders under this program.

The cost of this service is subsidized as a family-friendly benefit provided by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Your cost is $3/hour co-pay. Please visit: Pinch Hitter Care to begin the registration process, as required. A representative at Pinch Hitter Back-up Dependent and Elder Care Services can be contacted at (518)453-1000 should you have any questions about your benefit or to request care for your child or elder parent. For the more information see the Pinch Hitter Brochure or visit the A New England Nanny website.
