You may have heard of Making Life Easier (MLE) as a free mental health counseling service for King County employees, but did you know MLE offers many more services, beyond mental health support, designed to truly help make life easier for you and your family? Each week, Balanced You will spotlight a new MLE benefit for employees to take advantage of.
MLE Benefit: Daily Living Services
Sometimes our to-do lists are so long it can get overwhelming. MLE’s Daily Living Service is a free benefit that includes unlimited calls and instant messages to a Daily Living Consultant who can take some of your to-do list tasks off your plate. Professional Daily Living consultants provide research assistance, resources, information, and referrals for the nearly endless resource needs you encounter day-to-day.
Consultants can provide an eNeighborhood report, which provides detailed information on local demographics, schools, churches, employment, housing, crime, and weather, among other topics. Daily Living is also useful for referrals for nearby activities, grocery stores, and the local Department of Motor Vehicles.
In addition to these, consultants can also help with information on the Better Business Bureau and other licensing agencies where you can check for complaints against companies you consider on using. Along with these examples, Daily Living Consultants can also provide information on the following:
- Apartment locators
- Chore services/housecleaners
- Consumer comparisons
- Emergency services
- Entertainment services
- Fitness and wellness centers/programs
- Moving/relocation services
- Pet obedience training
- Pet sitters/kennels
- Transportation and travel services
- Volunteer opportunities
- Event planning
- Consumer education
- Home ownership
- Home repair (for example, handymen, plumbers, electricians, contractors, etc.)
