Mission Statement

Springwell provides comprehensive services to seniors, individuals with disabilities and those who care for them, guided by a commitment to the individual’s right to live independently in the community. This mission is a reflection of the agency’s core commitment to the dignity and self-determination of those who we serve.

Background Statement

Since 1977, Springwell has been helping seniors and individuals with disabilities in the communities of Belmont, Brookline, Needham, Newton, Walthan, Watertown, Wellesley and Weston live independently in their own homes. The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs appointed Springwell as the Aging Services Access Point, Area Agency on Aging, and Protective Services Agency for the residents of these communities, as well as the Protective Services Agency for an additional nine MetroWest communities. Originally founded as West Suburban Elder Services,we updated our name to Springwell in 2002 to reflect our commitment to serving the broader needs of our communities’ seniors, people with disabilities, and caregivers.

This year Springwell is celebrating its 40th anniversary helping people get the long-term services and supports that can make it possible for them to live and age independently. We support thousands of individuals each year by deploying an expert staff to deliver a significant array of more than 20 services and programs including Case Management & In-Home Services, Health Partnerships, Supportive Housing, Protective Services, Nutrition Services, Information & Consultation Services, Healthy Living Workshops, Caregiver Support, Money Management, and Friendly Visitors/Medical Escorts.

Springwell has been on the forefront of developing innovative ways to help seniors and people with disabilities maintain their independence, and to support their families. Springwell helped create two of the state’s first supportive housing sites to bring on-site services to seniors in public housing. In 2002, Springwell began offering a self-directed care option to give individuals more control over the care they receive.  In 2009, we launched the Healthy Living Program to provide evidence-based workshops and support to adults looking to address chronic health needs. Currently, in response to ongoing changes in healthcare, Springwell is exploring partnerships with hospitals, physician’s groups and accountable care organizations to coordinate long-term services and supports in order to improve health outcomes while also decreasing health care costs.

Springwell is committed to assessing the needs of our community, developing services to eliminate barriers for seniors to successfully remain in their homes, and ensuring that appropriate supports are available in the community to help individuals and families maintain their independence for as long as possible.

Impact Statement

Springwell is a leader in responding to the needs of seniors in greater Boston. In January, 2017, Springwell was featured in a national photo essay project by the Atlantic Magazine: “Americans at Work: Caring for our Elders.” Bringing this kind of attention and awareness about the issues facing seniors is of growing importance. The number of people over 65 is growing faster than any other age group in the United States. We are united in our commitment to build the collaborations and partnerships that our community will require to meet the growing need for services that support seniors in living healthy, independent lives as they age.

In 2017, we are forging deeper relationships with health care providers, housing authorities, other senior-serving organizations, and violence prevention specialists to improve services in the areas of health care, long-term services and supports, and elder abuse. Together, we strengthened our region’s safety net for seniors, people with disabilities and those who provide care.

Our efforts resulted in increased help for the people we serve. In FY2017, Springwell exceeded service delivery projections, coordinating care and providing 1,012,721 hours of in-home services to 4135 seniors and individuals with disabilities; delivering 229,920 healthy, nutritious meals; answering 7,396 requests for information and referrals; and investigating 954 reports of elder abuse. Through partnerships with Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization and Atrius Healthcare, we placed Springwell Community Care Coordinators in health care settings to help improve health outcomes. Springwell also acts as the lead agency for the greater Boston Financial Abuse Specialist Team, helping to respond to increasingly complicated elder abuse cases.

As the structure of the healthcare system continues to evolve, Springwell’s goals in 2017 are to:

  • Continue to invest in strengthening and building our core services in preparation for strategic growth to meet increased needs within a changing landscape.
  • Forge new partnerships with healthcare providers with a goal of reducing cost and improving health and patient satisfaction.
  • Invest in the human resources that make our service excellence possible.

Needs Statement

Springwell receives an important baseline of governmental support which makes most of our programs possible, but the need and cost of providing those services consistently outstrips that baseline. Unrestricted funds that allow us to close gaps as they arise give us the flexibility we need to respond to changes in the needs of the people we serve - both with increased delivery of our core services and the development of new services. 


Our core services that consistently present the most pressing need are within the Nutrition Program, which provides more than 190,000 hot lunches annually to homebound seniors and an additional 40,000 meals in community dining sites throughout our service area; the Money Management Program, which provides ongoing in-home financial management support for low-income elders; and the Healthy Living Program which promotes healthy aging and wellness for older adults through evidence-based workshops.

CEO Statement

I am honored to be serving in the position of CEO for Springwell at this time in the organization’s development. Not only are we serving more seniors and people with disabilities than at any time in our history, we are also leveraging our years of experience and the partnerships we’ve built to define a new role for Springwell within a rapidly evolving healthcare system. Two Accountable Care Organizations, each representing many physician groups and thousands of patients have contracted with Springwell for case management of their patients social needs that impact their health care goals. As the role of community social service agencies like Springwell evolves I am excited to lead an agency that continues to be at the forefront of patient centered care that achieves the Triple Aim of increased quality, improved satisfaction and a reduction in cost.

Healthy Living Program

Springwell’s Healthy Living Program consists of a family of workshops offered by Springwell and currently targeted to 150 individuals at risk of poor health outcomes annually. The workshops are nationally-recognized, evidence-based programs with extensive research supporting their effectiveness. Participants engage in facilitated and didactic instruction. They plan for and discuss their success in changing behavior throughout the course of the workshop, developing weekly and ongoing action plans for increasingly healthy behavior. We currently offer the following workshops: Chronic Disease Self-Management, Chronic Pain Self-Management, Diabetes Self-Management, Powerful Tools for Caregivers, A Matter of Balance, and Healthy Eating for Successful Living. Funding will support and sustain our work to engage more health care providers as workshop hosts, helping us to reach higher risk populations, and increase our number of people served from 150 to 200. 

Budget  $78,450.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Senior Services
Population Served Aging, Elderly, Senior Citizens People/Families of People with Health Conditions At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

In our last completed analysis of a sampling of 7 workshops in 2015, we received post-workshop surveys from 30 out of 56 workshop completers of Chronic Disease Self-Management, Healthy Eating, and Chronic Diabetes Self-Management, a survey completion rate of 56%. The reports from participants are as follows:

  • 98% reported increased knowledge as a result of taking the workshop

  • 94% report using at least one of the tools or techniques they learned during the workshop

  • 83% report an improvement in their overall health or well-being.

  • 42% report an improvement in their weight (either loss if needed to lose, or gain if needed to gain)

  • 61% report feeling happier since taking the workshop

Program Long-Term Success 

Ultimately, the goals for all of the Healthy Living workshops offered by Springwell are improvement in health outcomes and healthy behaviors, increase in self-care activities and self-management techniques, and decreased isolation for the seniors, older adults, and caregivers who participate. Common to all the workshops are goals including learning to recognize and manage depression, stress, communication difficulties, common medical issues, and adverse medication responses; creating a weekly action plan to implement problem solving, medication/protocol compliance, exercise, healthy eating, and discussion of healthcare with family and medical professionals; and accessing and learning of additional resources available to support changing lifestyle.


As a Program dedicated to providing well-established, evidence-based workshops, we depend on our adherence to the curriculum, and our training and support of our facilitators to provide workshops that replicate the impact that they have been shown to have on a national level for participants. However, ongoing measurement of the effects of the workshops on their participants is a critical part of our regular activities. Springwell’s Healthy Living Program distributes surveys to determine outcomes at the beginning and end of each workshop offered, and at a six-month interval following each workshop.

Program Success Monitored By 

Our main tool for measuring improvement in participant outcomes are client surveys, which are tailored for each of our healthy living workshops and given at pre-, post- and 6-month intervals.

In addition, as we develop relationships with health care partners, our goal is to work with them to begin accessing appropriate health outcome data where possible.

Currently, all Healthy Living Surveys cover the following areas (and are tailored to be specific to the condition the workshop addresses):

  • Ongoing use of the techniques taught in the class

  • Impact on daily functioning

  • Impact on mood

  • Impact on over-all health and well-being

  • Impact on ability to manage (pain, chronic condition, etc)

  • Impact on communication with health care providers

  • Impact on sense of control over their health

  • Impact on use of services (as a proxy for actual medical utilization data.)

  • Impact on social isolation

Examples of Program Success 

While we are proud of our quantitative results and the degree to which our experience verifies the original results of our family of evidence-based workshops, some of the most valuable aspects of these workshops can’t be measured because they come from the synergies of offering a forum for people to build community and learn from one another. One example of this comes from a Diabetes Self-Management Workshop in which a woman who had been diagnosed literally the week before the workshop bonded with a woman who had been living with diabetes for more than 20 years – both grew from the experience and the change in perspective that they offered to one another. In another workshop an incredibly diverse group of participants in My Life My Health brought together immigrants from as far away as Morocco, Libya and China, as well as diseases ranging from fibromyalgia to a rare blood disorder affecting less than 1% of the population. This group felt so strongly about their experience, that they independently exchanged contact information and continue to meet on their own. 

Money Management Program

Springwell's Money Management Program (MMP) leverages highly trained and supervised volunteers to help seniors and individuals with disabilities manage and pay bills on time, frequently offering relief from anxiety around handling financial matters, and often protecting them against financial exploitation. MMP Volunteers visit clients  once-a-month to assist with routine money management and bill paying. Volunteers also help clients manage their debt, communicate with utility and credit card companies, apply for food stamps, assist with banking errands, and educate about the dangers of money scams. People are often referred to the MMP due to overdue or unpaid bills, eviction notices, and /or utility shut-off notices; an insufficient amount of money to buy food and medications each month; or unexplained or out-of-character bank withdrawals, a frequent sign of financial exploitation. All those enrolled are low income individuals - 90% have an average annual income of less than $20,000. 
Budget  $83,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Financial Counseling
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success  Springwell’s Money Management Program will achieve the following outcomes in the coming year:  1) Identify, assess, and provide individualized services to 100 local seniors and disabled adults at high risk for financial mismanagement or victimization of fraud; 2) Provide 60 to 70 low-income elders and disabled adults with a comprehensive continuum of money management services and counseling; and 3) Promote prolonged independent living for individuals in the community who have lost the ability to manage their financial affairs on their own.
Program Long-Term Success  The long-term goal of Springwell's Money Management Program is to help seniors and people with disabilities remain independent and in their homes for as long as possible. Our goal is that 95% of people enrolled in our Money Management Program live within the bounds of their income while in the program.
Program Success Monitored By  Springwell conducts an annual Satisfaction Survey among all clients in the Money Management Program.  A system of "checks and balances" is also important for successful program operation. The agency takes seriously its responsibility to evaluate the program and utilizes the following methods:  1) Comprehensive home-based needs assessment of each consumer referred to the program, 2) Detailed monthly client progress reports, and  3) Quarterly 3rd party oversight provided through reviews of all client records, including bank statements and monthly volunteer reports.
Examples of Program Success  With the Money Management Program, a little help goes a long way. One client, 83-year old "Gail" lives alone and has significant memory issues.  Springwell's Money Management Program (MMP) makes sure that Gail's bills are paid and that her limited funds always cover rent, food, and medicine. Another MMP client, "Margot," had a disconnected phone, unregistered car, and expired license. Within weeks, her MMP volunteer helped "Margot" negotiate a phone bill payment plan, register her car, and create a sensible monthly budget.   Over 90% of elders enter our Money Management Program in financial distress, more than 80% live alone, and most of our seniors have no family to help them.  Almost immediately, the positive impact of Springwell’s program is clear.  Year after year, over 98% of consumers report that they are in better control of their finances, less worried about money, and on the road to financial stability as a result of Springwell’s Money Management Program.  

Nutrition Services for Seniors

Springwell's Nutrition Program addresses the nutritional and social needs of our communities' most marginalized, vulnerable seniors, by providing home-delivered meals, community dining sites, and nutrition counseling to seniors identified as at-risk for malnutrtion. Poor nutrition among the elderly is not a new problem. The U.S. Administration on Aging estimates that 1 in 3 seniors has an inadequate diet. Those who are most vulnerable to hunger are seniors on fixed incomes, seniors with a disability, and socially isolated seniors. The numbers of these seniors are growing as our society ages, and as many seniors live longer, outliving their savings and social networks. As a result, malnutrition and hunger are becoming a reality for an increasing number of low-and-moderate income elders.  Springwell's Nutrition Programs are an important community resource, and an integral part of the services that we provide to seniors, helping them to prevent hunger and maintain their independence.
Budget  $1,600,000.00
Category  Human Services, General/Other Senior Services
Population Served Elderly and/or Disabled
Program Short-Term Success  In fiscal year 2015, Springwell's Nutrition Program achieved the following: 1) 1,371 seniors having been assessed to be at nutritional risk, received Home Delivered Meals 2) 1,237 additional seniors received meals at Community Dining sites, 3) 186,834 meals were delivered to seniors at home, 4) 45,582 meals were served at Community Dining sites; and 5) 86% of seniors participating in our annual program survey reported that the meals they receive help them remain in their homes.
Program Long-Term Success 
The goals of Springwell's Nutrition Program are to reduce hunger among area seniors and help them maintain their independence. To support these goals, Springwell tracks the following outcomes as indicators of success: 1)The number of comprehensive, in-home needs assessments conducted; 2)The number of meals served through Home-Delivered Meals; 3)The number of meals served in Community Dining; 4) The number of seniors reporting that they can continue living in their home because of the meals the receive from Springwell. 

Springwell's evaluation of the Nutrition Program correlates with national research which demonstrates how valuable nutrition programs are in promoting healthy eating, preventing malnutrition, reducing social isolation, and enabling some of the community's most vulnerable elders to continue living in their own homes.
Program Success Monitored By  Quality improvement is valued agency-wide at Springwell, and interdisciplinary quality improvement committees regularly review each program with a process that emphasizes 1) determining desired outcomes, 2) defining benchmarks toward those outcomes, 3) identifying data to be measured, 4) determining a data collection method and implementing it (common data collection methods at Springwell include records reviews by supervisors or peers, record audits, and surveys of program participants), 5) compiling and measuring results, 6) identifying findings, and finally, 7) develop and implement program changes, if needed. 
Examples of Program Success 

As her retirement savings dwindled, and amid personal health complications, 76 year-old Dolores’ life had changed dramatically. After hip surgery, medical bills and expensive prescriptions squeezed her tiny budget to the max. Rent, heat, and medication were top priorities. So, Dolores cut back where she could – on food.

Upon referral from the hospital, a Springwell nurse and care advisor visited Dolores at home. They assessed Dolores’ situation and quickly took action. Home Delivered Meals were arranged to ensure that Dolores would eat nutritious food and keep healthy – especially critical as she recovered from surgery. 

Like many seniors, it had never occurred to Dolores to ask for help with meals - and the help didn't stop once she healed from her surgery. As a frail senior over the age of 60, she will continue to receive home-delivered meals, and a call from a care advisor regularly to assess whether or not other services would help her maintain her independence.

Financial summary data in the charts and graphs above are per the organization's audited financials. Additional revenue breakout detail was provided by the nonprofit.


The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
