Family Care

UCLA Health  and David Geffen School of Medicine offer a variety of childcare and eldercare resources.
We care for everyone that’s in your care.

We look out for your family, because they’re part of ours. We provide on-site childcare facilities, as well as referral services for both childcare and eldercare. We also have a lending library of audio presentations that address family needs.

Our childcare resources include the UCLA Westwood Child Care Center, UCLA Early Care and Education, ECE Center-based Services, and Preschool Pathways to Science.

For eligible staff, UC provides membership to a web-based resource to help you find and select childcare, eldercare and other family care providers.

At UCLA Health, we achieve excellence in patient care consistently by following the steps outlined in CICARE.

CICARE is an acronym that describes specific behaviors that are guaranteed to result in excellent communication with patients, families and colleagues.

Every UCLA Health employee, physician and volunteer holds themselves and their colleagues accountable for practicing these six steps with everyone on every encounter.
