New website provides wealth of resources and information for seniors and caregivers in 25 Metrowest communities

BOSTON– (Tuesday, November 18th) Senator Eldridge (D-Acton) and Representative Kate Hogan (D-Stow)  hosted a briefing at the State House on the newCaregivingMetroWest.org website launched by BayPath Elder Services, Inc. which serves as an online resource for caregivers of elders in 25 Metrowest towns in Massachusetts.

“This newly launched website will be a useful resource to connect caregivers with services and a support network in a much more effective way in the Metrowest region,” said Senator Jamie Eldridge. “I applaud BayPath Elder Services, Inc. for the work they do to increase the quality of life for individuals who care for aging loved ones with chronic conditions, illness and other disabilities.”

“One of the most difficult obstacles to overcome when choosing support services is knowing what services there are to choose from, and whether or not your loved one qualifies for them,” said Representative Kate Hogan. “BayPath Elder Services’ new site is designed to relay specific, customized information about local resources for individuals and caregivers at their own pace and on their own time.”

New features of CaregivingMetroWest.org include a town resource map, government agencies and program information, caregiver concierge to guide users to the information best suited to meet their needs, discussion forum, new blog called Caregiving Chronicles, glossary for medical terminology, helpline, news from around the web, home and health safety resources.
