Neighbors in Action

Program Description

Neighbors in Action provides assistance to older and disabled adults in the La Crescent and Caledonia, Minnesota areas. We help with tasks that are difficult to manage to help people stay living in their own homes longer.

Neighbors in Action provides help in two ways:

  • Volunteers are matched to provide basic home tasks, occasional companionship and transportation
  • *New* Care Partner Service – a paid staff person provides more in depth care to help provide peace of mind to both the person served and their family.

Service Options include:

  • Outdoor chores: snow shoveling, lawn mowing, leaf raking
  • Light housekeeping
  • Transportation for appointments and errands
  • Companionship, friendly visiting and respite for caregivers
  • Social and educational opportunities
  • Home Safety Assessments for fall prevention

Neighbors in Action News and Upcoming Events

Winter is upon us, and snow season can be a worrisome time for older adults who can no longer shovel their own driveways. Neighbors in Action is looking for people willing to adopt an older person’s driveway in La Crescent or Caledonia. Please consider volunteering!
