African American Elder Connections
Hmong Elder Connections
Creating opportunities for health and connections
Older adults’ health and well-being improve when they have varied opportunities to stay socially engaged and connected to their community. But right now, far too many elders are isolated because they lack places to go and the means to get to those places. Our service specialists provide access to community resources and deliver culturally appropriate services to African American and Hmong older adults to help them remain healthy, connected, and safe-at-home in their community.
Our service specialists are reflective of the communities they serve. Our team strives to meet residents where they are, serving people in their homes and communities. Bilingual Hmong team members are available to meet the language and specialized cultural needs of Hmong elders.
Every person is unique, which is why we never use a one-size-fits-all approach. Our service specialists respect the experiences and wisdom of the people they serve and keep their voice at the center of care. Services are tailored to the person’s individual needs and with respect to the level of care they prefer.
