Home & Community Care



"To offer home and community options to enable individuals to make safe and informed living choices and utilize the services necessary to support their choices"  

The Home & Community Care programs are designed to support elderly and disabled people in their efforts to remain living as independently in the community as possible.

There are several different programs that are targeted to specific age groups and targeted to specific types of disabilities.

  • The first step to access services is a call to our intake worker at 507 328-6519
  • Over the phone we will explore with you the what you think you might want or need
  • What types of services may be available
  • Review eligibility criteria for various options
  • Review the types of supports you may already have in place
  • Determine together if a home visit to conduct an assessment is of interest

The assessment, referred to as a Long Term Care Consultation, is done with a team approach. A Public Health Nurse and a social worker will come out and meet with you and anyone you wish to include. At the conclusion of the assessment recommendations will be made for you to consider in determining your need for support. The waiver programs listed below each have some very specific eligibility criteria. You may choose if you meet the criteria, to participate in one of the waiver programs. You could also choose to find alternative ways to meet your needs. The program contains:


  • Long Term Care Consultation
  • Relocation Service Coordination
For persons with disabilities under the age of 65
  • CADI – Community Alternatives for Disabled Individuals
  • CAC – Community Alternative Care
  • TBI – Traumatic Brain Injury
For persons over age 65
