Since 2004 our in-home care agency has been providing non-medical care to individuals and families throughout southern Minnesota. Our goal is simple, to help you remain independent within your own home by providing basic yet helpful day-to-day services and socialization.
At Aging Services for Communities (ASC) we operate as a private, non-profit agency licensed by the state of Minnesota, and are also fully insured and bonded. Established in September 2004 through a grant provided by the Minnesota River Area Agency on Aging, our organization had a relatively small reach.
Our only program consisted of Respite Services (caregiver support), and it was only provided in Le Sueur County. Word about our services quickly spread, leading to an expanded service area as well as added programs. The next service added to our agency was our Transportation program, which relies on volunteer drivers. Following that we added our Homemaker Services, which is an in-home care program performed by paid employees.
Today at ASC we are recognized as an in-home care and eldercare provider throughout many Minnesota counties; our organization has grown in reach, depth, and commitment. Throughout the years we have developed sought-after programs and retained some of the most experienced staff in the area. At Aging Services for Communities we will continue to provide optimal caregiver services for as long as the need exists, all while seeking ways to improve and add to our current program offerings.
There are numerous areas in our agency that rely on volunteer services from community members. Aging Services for Communities seeks reliable, friendly volunteers to provide the following services:
Reliable volunteer drivers are needed to transport individuals to and from medical, dental, and other appointments. Volunteer drivers will use their own personal vehicles to provide local and long distance transportation that is reimbursed per mile.
Individuals are needed to provide 2-4 hour visits. During this time, volunteers provide socialization to the care recipient – child, teen or older adult - while their main caregiver takes a break. These volunteers are reimbursed for their mileage – and it is a non-reportable income.
If you’re interested in volunteering in any way please contact us; we would appreciate hearing from you.
