Senior Services 65+
Seniors and their families who need services that help older persons remain in their homes may benefit from Minnesota’s Alternative Care, Elderly Waiver, and Essential Community Supports programs and county Case Management services. These programs and services can also help spouses and families care for their senior family members.
The programs include a wide variety of services that help older adults, including home health aide services, home delivered meals, family caregiver support and training, transportation, personal care assistants, medical supplies and equipment, companion services and homemaker services. The Elderly Waiver also includes adult foster care services, customized living services and more. The Essential Community Supports program provides funding for some services that many seniors first find helpful such as homemaking or meals.
