Caregiver Support

The caregiver role can be emotionally, physically, and financially overwhelming, even though it is willingly undertaken and often a source of great personal satisfaction. Whether the caregiver is a partner, a husband or wife caring for a frail spouse, or a son or daughter attending to the needs of an aged parent, Greater Springfield Senior Services' Caregiver Support program can help.

The goal of the program is to provide caregivers with the essential training and support needed to help them sustain their efforts. For more information, contact our Information & Referral department at 413-781-8800.

Personalized Consultations

Our compassionate Caregiver Support Specialists are experts in finding the best possible solution for your needs.
They will:

  • Listen to your concerns and answer your questions
  • Provide you with information about elder care programs and services in your community
  • Make referrals and objective recommendations about the housing, health, social, financial
    and legal choices that are available to you
  • Assist with completing applications and claims forms

As a nonprofit organization, we have no financial interest in providing a particular service or in suggesting more services than you need.
