Connecting to life


Mary and Bob have been married for 53 years. Unfortunately, Bob suffers from dementia and Mary has been Bob's caregiver for the past several years.

A Resources For Living consultant connects Mary with adult daycare services available in her area. Bob now enjoys a stimulating day each week and Mary finds guilt-free time for herself to reconnect with friends and her interests.

Connecting to clinical excellence


Fran’s hip replacement was successful and she’s completing a discharge planning education session with Nurse Pat from Allina Health’s Clinical Nurse team. Pat learns that Fran doesn’t have a support network at home — her children live in different cities. She connects Fran with a Resources For Living consultant. Knowing that Fran won’t be as mobile after her surgery, the consultant connects Fran with Meals On Wheels and a community transport program in her area. Now Fran can simply focus on healing.
