Caregiver Support Group Held Every Week
Open to residents from any community with or without memory issues.
The Huntington Council on Aging also offers outreach services that support elders and their caregivers with information and resources. This includes assisting with identifying benefit programs and making home visits. Please contact Caregiver Support Coordinator/Facilitator and Outreach Coordinator Crystal Wright-Partyka at 413-685-5283 or email caregiveroutreach [at] huntingtonma.us () for more information or to sign up for either program.
If you need transportation to the programs, please call FRTA Van Driver Richard Homan at 860-836-1844 to schedule an appointment by 6:00 p.m. the day prior to your ride. Appointments should be made as far in advance as possible to ensure availability. An application needs to be filled out prior to riding the van. Please call 512-5205 to have one mailed or emailed to you. The fare for the van ride to the Memory Café or COA office is $1.50 round trip.
These programs are made possible in part by a grant from Highland Valley Elder Services through funding under the Federal Older Americans Act and by a grant from the Huntington Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
