Senior service providers to meet May 4 in Hackensack
Meal delivery, adult day care, in-home help, hospice, transportation and more resource providers to attend
HACKENSACK — Finding services for seniors in rural America can be a challenge, but the providers of such services in Cass County are working hard to network and share information on their services with others in the area.
At 9 a.m. Thursday, May 4, at the Faith in Action for Cass County office in Hackensack, senior providers in the county will meet to share information and learn about what’s new in senior services in the area and in Minnesota.
Regular participants at the quarterly meetings include people who provide meal delivery, adult day care, in-home help, hospice, transportation, help with Medicare claims, legal services, assisted living facilities or nursing homes, volunteer services, companion programs, library services, respite, county health and human services, law enforcement, and other resources.
Usually a representative from the Central Minnesota Council on Aging is available with updates on regional or state issues in senior care. Anyone who provides services to seniors or is interested in learning about these services is welcome to attend.
Interested parties may find more information about Faith in Action or about the senior providers meeting at www.faithinactioncass.com or by calling at 866-675-5435.
The meeting will be hosted by Faith in Action for Cass County, a nonprofit charitable organization that provides volunteer services to older adults, people with disabilities, and those in need of neighborly help in Cass County.
Faith in Action volunteers help with transportation, friendly visits, caregiver respite and resources, chores, light housekeeping, critical home repairs and ramp building. Faith in Action volunteers choose their own time and level of providing assistance, and receive training, liability insurance and mileage reimbursement.
