FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 29th, 2017

PRINCETON, MINN. - On Tuesday, November 21st, Family Pathways Aging Services was awarded a $500 grant by the Shopko Foundation. It was presented to Family Pathways staff Stacy Nolting and Lori Lestina at the Princeton Shopko location. The grant money will be used for programs and services designed to help older adults live well and independently in their own homes throughout the Mille Lacs County area.

 

The program offers services to aging seniors and their caregivers. Health programs, information and referral services, in-home social visits, homemaking, support groups, caregiver respite, and educational classes are just some of the forms in which help is available. More information about classes can be found on the website at FamilyPathways.org.

Over the last year, Family Pathways Aging Services has provided 1,584 hours of education and assistance creating customized plans for caregivers to help them achieve a balanced and healthy life. Engagement by staff provided 819 adults and caregivers help, hope, and support in 2016. With help from volunteers and dedicated employees, the Aging Services program has been able to expand and improve upon these services resulting in an increase of clientele and service requests.
