The services we provide with the excellent nonprofit Community Seniors Services Partnership are the Caregiver Support and HOME program available to members of the surrounding community.

Contact Becky Allard, LSW of Senior Community Services, 952-746-4028, [email protected] She can set up a regular check-in call to help focus on the caregiver and their feelings during these difficult times we all face. If you would like to connect with other caregivers like you, please contact Becky. She has the option of setting up virtual support groups if enough people are interested. Funded by the Central MN Council on Aging as part of the Older Americans Act program.
