On Thursday, May 26th of 2022, WestMass ElderCare (WMEC) hosted its annual Spring Provider Meet and Greet event, bringing providers and WMEC staff together. Meet and Greet event is a great way for organizers to meet in person with vendors’ agencies staff and learn more about services that are provided by the vendors and to get to know each other. The main idea behind these kinds of events is that it provides a casual, comfortable, low-key setting for connection and better communication between WestMass ElderCare case managers and Advanced Home Care case coordinators, developing mutually beneficial relationships. Among participants who attended the event in person were our own Art Kalenjian, CEO of AHCS, Sandra Afizi, Coordinator and Olive Githogori, Manager of Client Services.
