Supportive Housing

Jen Glover addresses Elm Terrace residents at a recent open house for supportive housing.Elm Terrace Elder Housing, located on Elm Street in Greenfield, now offers a supportive housing option.

The concept of supportive housing is one that adds flexible supportive services for all the residents living in the complex. A full-time staff person is on site to work with residents. The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs and the Department of Housing and Community Development have approved almost 30 supportive housing sites throughout the Commonwealth.

The goal of supportive housing is to allow those who already live in elder housing to stay there and get support when and how it is needed. For example, if a person has a hospital stay, when they return home, they will have a check-in visit, and if some services or extra help are necessary to assist them while they fully recuperate, those supports can be put in place. If support is needed long-term, that can be arranged as well.

 

Jen Glover is the Supportive Housing Coordinator at Elm Terrace. She can be reached at 413-773-5555 Ext. 2219 or 978-544-2259 Ext. 2219.
