|Helping Minnesota’s Older Adults During COVID-19|
|The Senior LinkAge Line will continue to be a resource for older adults and their families to call during this emergency situation.|
We can help people find resources and make connections with alternative services if someone’s provider or support network has changed or temporarily stopped providing services. See details.
The Minnesota Board on Aging, Minnesota’s Area Agencies on Aging and the Minnesota Department of Human Services are working closely together to share information and ensure that all parts of the state have the resources they need to support older Minnesotans and caregivers.
|Spread Smiles to Seniors|
|Our seniors would love to hear from you! Looking for a service project to do with your kids? Or do you just have it in your heart to spread a message of cheer during this time of social distancing? If so, a gender-neutral card or letter would be appreciated by our residents who need a little extra pick me up.|
Mail your cards to: St. Benedict’s Community, Attn: JoEllen Johnson, 1810 Minnesota Blvd. SE, St. Cloud, MN 56304.
Drop off cards at the Gorecki Guest House across from CentraCare – St. Cloud Hospital. A bin will be located outside of the Guest House. Cards will be distributed to CentraCare long-term care facilities.
