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

Neighbors in Action is working hard to meet the needs of our older neighbors during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our Care Partners are providing homemaking services throughout all of Houston County while adhering to the strictest safety protocols. We are also doing our best to meet transportation requests but have very few drivers who are willing to volunteer at this time. We are also able to meet requests for outdoor chores as volunteers are available. The safety or our clients, staff and volunteers remains our number one priority. Please call our office at (507) 895-8123 if you or an older friend or neighbor needs assistance.
