CareGivingMetroWest.org and the Springwell Family Caregiver Support Program is made possible by funding from the Older Americans Act as granted by Executive Office of Elder Affairs. As, such voluntary donations toward the cost of this federally funded service is greatly appreciated.
CaregivingMetroWest.org was originally created by BayPath Elders Services, which merged with Springwell in July of 2022. It was funded, in part, by generous grants from the MetroWest Health Foundation, with additional funding support graciously donated by Avidia Bank from 2018 – 2021.
CareGivingMetroWest.org is a website devoted to caregivers of elders in 25 MetroWest communities. The website provides information, connection to resources and community support. This is achieved in part by several customized interactive website features, specifically designed for MetroWest caregivers and their elder care recipients.
Where do I start?
One of our interactive website features is a customized assessment tool, titled the Caregiver Concierge. This tool designed to quickly direct MetroWest caregivers to information and resources tailored to their specific caregiving needs and situation.
Finding Local Resources
There is also a clickable MetroWest map that produces a printable, town-specific list of resources for each of the 25 MetroWest towns:
You can also search resources by type. For example if you are a family caregiver to someone with a form of dementia, you can find support groups in your area that are specifically for caregivers who are also caring for someone with dementia.
The Caregiving Chronicles blog provides news and analysis on caregiving topics in the MetroWest region and beyond, information on community events and extensive Q&As with experts in fields related to caregiving.
The website site also includes information on what to expect throughout the caregiving experience, government programs, local resources, specific diseases and health conditions, home and safety equipment, legal and financial issues and other topics and resources. Information is presented in the form of listings of resources, links and in-depth original articles.
