Caregiver Support & Respite
Are you exhausted from caregiving? As a caregiver there are many duties required of you; at times it may feel like you are solely responsible for the well being of your parent, grandparent or loved one. Without proper support for you, the day-to-day caregiver routine can become exhausting, monotonous and overwhelming. You can very quickly go from loving son or daughter to detached caregiver; losing the lifelong connection with your parent or loved-one.

As a caregiver you too need support. At Aging Services for Communities it is our belief that an individual can only receive optimal care if their caregiver also receives the services, support and rest they need to perform at their best. When you need a break turn to us, we offer a complete Caregiver Support and Respite program developed to provide you with the time-off you need and deserve. The Respite Program includes:

  • Short-term respite care on a 2-4 hour basis to relieve the caregiver of their 24-hour a day responsibility
  • Respite care will be provided in the client's own home
  • Support and guidance through your caregiving journey
  • Respite services provided by screened and trained volunteers

To qualify for the Caregiver Support and Respite program you need to be a primary caregiver who provides 24-hour care for a relative or love one. Your care-receiver must be:

  • Age 60 or older
  • Reside in LeSueur or Rice County
  • Ill with a long-term degenerative disease or chronic condition
  • Unable to stay alone / unattended for more than 2 hours

While Aging Services for Communities strives to offer necessary services, there are tasks we cannot perform such as:

  • Administering Medications
  • Providing Professional Nursing Care
  • Heavy Lifting or Moving
  • Administering Injections or Diabetic Testing
  • Monitoring Blood Pressure or Vitals
  • Assisting with Bathing or Personal Care

Lastly, we cannot totally replace the love and care that only family members can provide. However, we can help you remain as independent as possible in your own home.

Testimonial

"My experience with Respite Services was absolutely wonderful. It allowed me to care for my husband at home for many years. The Respite volunteers were always prompt and cheerful. They were so well matched to my husband's interests, which allowed him to easily visit with them. I surely felt I was leaving him in good hands, as I left the house to run errands, or shop.

We both looked forward to having our Respite person come to our home. I know I would not have been able to continue my home care, had it not been for our Respite team. They were a blessing! Sincerely,"
- Marilyn

 

Home Management (Homemaker Services)
Our Homemaker Services are available to individuals who are physically capable of managing their physical and personal care but who need some help from time to time. We've found that occasional assistance with light housework and other small tasks allow more older adults to remain living independently in their own homes instead of having to move to assisted living facilities.

Aging Services for Communities employs a trained and qualified staff to help you with the following tasks:

  • Garbage Removal
  • Grocery Shopping / Errands
  • Laundry
  • Light Housekeeping
  • Mail Sorting
  • Meal Preparation
  • Socialization
  • *Supervision
  • Washing Dishes

Our Homemaker Services are available to residents in the following counties: Blue Earth, Brown, Carver, Faribault, Freeborn, LeSueur, Nicollet, Rice, Scott, Sibley, Steele and Waseca. If you find yourself in need of occasional assistance, contact Aging Services for Communities, we are here to help you remain independent in your own home.

These services are available with a sliding fee. Please notify us if you are on an Elderly Waiver or the Alternative Care Grant.

*We can provide overnight supervision for those unable to stay alone.

Testimonial

"My mom (Dorothy) lived in her own apartment at Hillside Courts in LeSueur for 6 years, from age 85 to 91. Just within the past couple of weeks she has moved into an assisted living facility due to faltering health. Mom couldn't have lived there on her own for nearly that long without the help of her sister, and the help Jacki provided. Jacki cleaned bi-weekly (and did a super job), helped with errands and laundry, and more than that she was a friend to mom. Mom always looked forward to her visits and will miss seeing her twice a month." – Patrick Bones

  • Medical Assistance Clients: Medical appointments can be anywhere in Minnesota. Clients must be able to get in and out of the vehicle on their own; if the individual is not able to, they should contact the Senior Linkage Line at 1-800-333-2433 for van service. Medical Assistance client rides may be free, contact ASC to find out how.
  • Non-medical: Aging services for communities also offers transportation and companionship to anyone going to non-medical appointments. In these instances a trained and qualified person will accompany you to your appointments for a fee.
