Taking on new challenges, Angie looks for ways to support herself and her family.

This is her story.

Angie Hero

New responsibility

Angie was learning to manage her recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes when her sister suddenly passed away. Without question, Angie takes on the responsibility of caring for her nephew with special needs.

Angie Responsibility

Health close to work

At work, Angie found the support she needed to manage her diabetes through the on-site clinic her employer offered. That benefit greatly reduced her time away from her job, making her more productive at work.

Searching for solutions

A year later, Angie found that providing care for her nephew left time for little else—including work. Feeling hopeless and depressed, Angie began searching for solutions. Angie reached out to her employer to discuss FMLA options and was immediately connected to the company’s EAP counselors for additional support.

Supporting a family

While Angie was on FMLA, she made sure to keep in touch with her EAP counselor. Not only did her counselor find Angie resources to help her with the depression, the counselor also found a group home for Angie’s nephew that allowed him to be well-cared for, independent, and close to Angie’s home.

Time for Angie

Comforted that her nephew was getting the care he needed, Angie was able to return to work. She wanted to start caring for her mental and physical self again, so she took more advantage of her well-being services, including finding a health coach to help her achieve lifestyle goals.

A new normal

A year later, Angie is less stressed and depressed and is actively managing her diabetes without medication. More confident, Angie also noticed she was more engaged in her work—but she wasn’t the only one to take note! Angie recently accepted a promotion and continues to enjoy her newfound perspective on health, wellness, and life.
