Kanabec County Community Health receives $30,642 in Title III funds from the Central Minnesota Council on Aging to provide services through the Older Americans Act.
The services provided with these funds enable an older person to continue living in their home with some assistance rather than face premature residence in a long-term care facility. The services provided through funding enable seniors to continue living in their homes - independently.
The following services will be offered in Kanabec County this year.
• Public Health Nurse Clinics – In Mora clinics are held every Wednesday and every other Thursday each month by appointment. Services include assessment, vitals check, foot care, mental health screening, toenail trimming and medication review.
• Medication Management and Screening services – This service is offered by appointment on Wednesdays in Mora. Services include assessment, setting up of medications with a doctor’s order. INR testing can also be done with a doctor’s order to the Public Health Nurse Clinic.
