Central Minnesota Council on Aging

Central MN Council on Aging

Central Minnesota Council on Aging is a non-profit organization and designated by the Minnesota Board on Aging as the area agency on aging serving Benton, Cass, Chisago, Crow Wing, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Sherburne, Stearns, Todd, Wadena and Wright counties.

The Central Minnesota Council on Aging is committed to maintaining the highest level of independence with older people by developing and coordinating community care, reducing isolation and improving access to services. It does this by:

Administering the Title III Federal Older American Act funds by awarding funding to local community providers to provide home supportive services, caregiver support, health promotion and disease management, home delivered meals and congregate dining.

Collaborating with communities, cities, counties, faith-based organizations, regional development commissions and health and social service providers to meet the needs of our growing senior population. This is accomplished through coordinated development of caregiver support, volunteer-based services and community resources.

Making it easier for seniors and their caregivers to access health and supportive services. Through the Senior LinkAge Line® seniors and their families can learn about available resources. A full spectrum of information is available by telephone or in-person visits enabling people to make informed choices. Trained and certified volunteers support the work of the Senior LinkAge Line®.
