Chelsea resident J. Barry Dwyer has taken on another important role to make a difference in the community. “Barry,” former Chelsea High School Cross Country Track and Field Coach and former Chelsea School Committee member has joined Caregiver Homes as a Community Ambassador. As a native and lifelong resident of Chelsea, Dwyer understands how Caregiver Homes can benefit many families in the area who are at the crossroads of what to do when caring for an elder relative or loved one with disabilities.
“We are delighted that Barry has decided to join the effort to help spread the word of how more families can care for their loved ones at home with the support and training from a care team,” said Teresa Arnold, Area Director for Caregiver Homes.
Caregiver Homes is a statewide Adult Foster Care provider helping over 2,000 caregivers in Massachusetts care for loved ones and family members at home. Through case management support from nurses and care managers, Caregiver Homes helps families stay together and supports elders and individuals with disabilities who may otherwise not thrive at home due to medical or behavioral complexity.
Dwyer will be present at several community events this spring to discuss Caregiver Homes with those interested in learning about the organization as a possible solution to caring for family or friends. He will be working with Cynthia Mellor, Branch Manager of the Boston I branch, which serves Chelsea.
