Family Caregiver and Older Adult Advocacy Program

This program provides information, resources, and referrals for services to Older Adults and their caregivers. These services reduce caregiver stress and provide older adults with information and access to services to assure they can "age in place" successfully. Areas the advocate may assist with include: application assistance with financial programs, homecare and support group resources, healthcare directive completion, food programs, issues related to caring for someone living with dementia and more.

Advocates can assist in many different ways including conversations via phone, home visit, or a family meeting.

Eligibility Criteria:

Caregivers must be caring for a person over the age of 60. One person within the caregiving/senior circle must live within Goodhue, Rice, or Wabasha Counties.
