To address the evolving issues of being a parent, son and member of the sandwich generation, Mr, Wingate started Employee Dependent Care a/k/a e-DependentCare based on his own work-life care issues. Having started e-DependentCare when his son was 3 and his parents were in their 70's, Mr. Wingate has added on additional services using his own life as a boilerplate. Now with his son in his twenties, losing his father to alzheimers disease and addressing the issues of an elderly surviving parent, Mr. Wingate rebranded e-DependentCare into EmployeeCare in 2011 as the company now addresses the full spectrum or work-life balance issues.
