Central MN Elder Network provides companionship and respite care services to residents of the Douglas County area age fifty-five and older. For over twenty years, our non-profit, 501 (c)(3) charitable organization has been dedicated to helping older adults with the challenges associated with aging. These challenges can be physical changes, loss of loved ones, transition to a new home setting, learning new leisure time activities, making new friends or taking care of a loved one - we are here to help. Registered Nurse Program Coordinators complete an in-home assessment to determine the needs and interests of all clients.
Our services are provided by highly trained, compassionate volunteers and coordinated by a staff of professionals. All volunteers receive training in communication and active listening skills, normal aging, dementia, grief, depression, death and dying and more. All services are
kept strictly confidential.
