What we know today as Glenmeadow came into being in 1884, when a group of civic leaders developed the Springfield Home for Aged Women. This safe and dignified residence opened in November 1886 and accommodated 16 women from the community without family or means. Fourteen years later, a new, larger home opened nearby, and in 1960, its name changed to Chestnut Knoll. We began admitting men in 1992, and five years later, we moved to our current 23-acre home in Longmeadow. Our name changed to Glenmeadow at that time.
Residents at 24 Tabor Crossing—accredited since July 2000—enjoy on-site access to healthcare and support, including care coordination, medication management, personal care, wellness programs, and response to emergency situations. A wealth of service offerings for seniors in the community has also evolved over time so that we could realize our vision to provide services to a socially and economically diverse elder population.
In 2002, for instance, to make independent living easier for residents living in their own homes, the organization unveiled Glenmeadow at Home, which now serves roughly 100 seniors each month. We also now offer multiple programs for community members: Lifestyle Pass memberships allow residents of the region access to amenities enjoyed by on-campus residents; Glenmeadow Learning provides access to free, educational programs; and Glenmeadow Getaways offers multigenerational travel opportunities. Through the latter two programs alone, we reach more than 300 seniors each year. This means we are fulfilling our mission on a deeper level and introducing ourselves to more individuals we could potentially assist.
