Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) Announces the Nation's First Enhanced Caregiver Service to Address Loneliness, in Alliance with Papa

PR Newswire

IRVINE, Calif., June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- IBH Population Health Solutions (Integrated Behavioral Health, Inc.), a leader in behavioral health nationwide, today announced it is expanding its offering through a partnership with Papa, Inc. to help employees struggling to find help or care for their older loved ones. The new caregiver plus program is an enhancement to IBH's employee assistance programs (EAPs) to help members care for older loved ones and provide support for the growing concern about loneliness and independence in older adult populations. 

"Loneliness and social isolation are growing concerns for older adults and the ones who love them, and can greatly impact their health," said Dan Clark, IBH's CEO. "IBH recognizes that our elder generations and in fact all people, need to feel connected, and have a sense of purpose and community. Social isolation effects mental well-being as well as physical well-being and we're excited to enrich our nationwide mental health care services in collaboration with Papa."

IBH's new caregiver plus program pairs trained college students, referred to as "Papa Pals," with older adults to help with light chores, transportation, technology assistance, and provide companionship  through playing games or just having someone to talk to. "Pals" are able to provide assistance while also physically distancing themselves by refilling and picking-up prescriptions, shopping for groceries, running errands or virtual visits and check-ins by telephone or online with their matched adult.

"The Papa team is thrilled to partner with a top tier, national behavioral health provider like IBH," said Andrew Parker, Founder and CEO of Papa. "Through our partnership we will continue to expand our service footprint to help employees remain focused at work, while Papa cares for their loved ones."

For over 30 years, IBH has been a leading provider of employee assistance programs specializing in behavioral health and crisis management services and currently supports over 10 million members across the United States through its national network of providers. By expanding its EAP reach, IBH is able to provide greater care for members who are also supporting an older relative. For more information, please visit ibhsolutions.com.
