CAREGIVING CHRONICLES

Information and resources that support your role in caring for a loved one.

This past Friday, May 10th, 2019, marked the one year anniversary of Avidia Bank officially announcing its commitment to donate $105,000 to BayPath Elder Services over three years in support of our Family Caregiver Support Program.

BayPath recognizes that caregiving has many stages and challenges that can be difficult for an individual to navigate on their own. In support of this, our Family Caregiver Support Program offers essential information and resources, from trained caregiver specialists, through our national award-winning CaregivingMetroWest.org website. The site provides caregivers with tools that support all aspects and stages of the caregiving journey, including targeted educational programs that teach a caregiver how to avoid stress and burnout and or techniques for providing care to a loved one with Alzheimer`s disease or related dementia.

Over the past year, Avidia and BayPath have collaboratively facilitated several types of community outreach including coordinated efforts to provide caregiving information and resources to bank customers and other community members through:

  • Workshops and information tables set up in bank branches.
  • A caregiving workshop delivered internally for bank employees who are currently in a caregiving role or who or are just beginning a caregiving journey.
  • A dedicated team of employees from Avidia’s Hudson Branch who deliver Meals on Wheels on behalf of BayPath.
  • Generating additional outreach by cross-promoting each other’s social media efforts.

“We feel Bay Path offers a great service to our market area and as a community bank, we want to do whatever we can to support the mission of BayPath.”    ~Mark O’Connell, CEO, Avidia Bank

BayPath is honored to partner with Avidia Bank to facilitate dedicated outreach that promotes awareness of our Family Caregiver Support Program and to sustain delivery of the high-level of support we provide to caregivers within our MetroWest communities.

Avidia’s core mission has the community at heart. By partnering within Avidia’s branches, it enables us to bring our Family Caregiver Support Program to the people.”  ~Christine Alessandro, Executive Director BayPath Elder Services, Inc.
