Caregiving MetroWest continues to grow with new features and content
By Douglas Flynn / July 17, 2015

With more than 18 months spent planning and preparing the content for this site, Caregiving MetroWest launched last spring with an extensive offering of information and resources for family caregivers. But we always planned for those initial offerings to be just the foundation, and we're proud to have been able to regularly add to the site's content as we continue to strive to meet the evolving needs of the growing ranks of family caregivers.

There are a couple of recent additions we are particularly proud of. First, BayPath Elder Services Caregiver Specialist Alicia Rego has launched The Wellness Wall. Alicia brings her wealth of empathy, experience and expertise to the Wall, where she offers an array of thoughts, advice, encouragement, practical tips, inspirational quotes and even the occasional recipe for family caregivers. Check back frequently to see what Alicia has added to her ever-growing wall of wisdom.

Caregiving MetroWest was fortunate to get the insight of another key BayPath staff member as well. BayPath Home Care Senior Manage Liz Tretiak has contributed to our newest section, which is devoted to younger caregivers. Liz draws upon both her professional knowledge and her personal experience as a 30-year-old recently thrust into the role of primary caregiver for both of her parents to provide an engaging and insightful guide for caregivers in their 20s and 30s, complete with 10 key "survival tips" for younger caregivers.

All of us at Caregiving MetroWest are grateful for Alicia and Liz's willingness to share their knowledge and experiences with our growing community of area caregivers. They add to the extensive offerings already available from Leslie May-Chibani, LSW, the Assistant Director at Minuteman Senior Services who formerly served as a Caregiver Specialist and Care Transitions Program Manager at BayPath, Sara Miller, a Registered Nurse and Clinical Director at Right at Home Boston Metro, Diane McCauley, a veteran caregiver from Hopkinton, and Caregiving MetroWest Program Manager Douglas Flynn.

And we look forward to bringing many more new features and content pieces in the future from these and other contributors.
