We offer a variety of services to help older adults remain independent.
Most older adults wish to remain in their own homes as long as possible and to delay–and potentially avoid–the need to move into an assisted living or nursing home facility. To this end, we provide variety of high-quality services to meet the diverse needs and preferences of the people we serve.
Your needs and preferences are unique. Our goal is to help you find the resources that work for you and fit your life. Our Care Coordinator will meet with you to assess your needs and discuss your options.
Our team of volunteer drivers are able to provide rides for social activities, medical appointments, shopping or errands. We are able to supply rides locally, or longer distance like Mankato or Rochester.
Social connection are critical for your health and well-being, but sadly often neglected. Our volunteer visitors, either by phone or in person, are available for friendly support, companionship and encouragement.
Our cleaning team is able to help with tasks such as vacuuming, laundry, organizing, changing linens and other cleaning needs. We typically provide 2 hours of cleaning every other week, but we can adjust to your needs.
Each month, we work with the Faribault County Food Shelf and deliver boxes of groceries to elders in need. During the summer, we deliver extra produce from local gardeners through a service we call the “Zucchini Adoption Program.”
If you are in need of a wheelchair, walker, or shower chair (etc.) for long or short term use, give us a call and we will let you know what we have in inventory. We also accept donations of items you are no longer using.
“I feel much better about staying in my home now that I feel my home is clean and organized.”
“I don’t need to go down steps to do the laundry, she vacuums for me, etc. and drives for grocery shopping about one time a month.”
“It has been a blessing for 2 hours every 2 weeks of home cleaning help, plus transportation for doctor’s appts., Thank you!“
