HAVE A UNIQUE CAREGIVING EXPERIENCE?

 
 

Long-distance caregiving

Caring from a distance has distinct challenges, including limited knowledge about available resources and services. Outside Minnesota, try the Eldercare Locator, a national toll-free directory assistance program provided by the U.S. Administration on Aging to help elders and their families find local services. Call 1-800-677-1116.

 

Disability caregiving

Caring for someone with a developmental disability is lifelong and often done by older parents or siblings. As the parent and care receiver age, the care and service needs can change. Find information by calling the Disability Hub MN at 1-866-333-2466 or online at MinnesotaHelp.info.
