Service Details


The Minnesota Association of Area Agencies on Aging (m4a) is a coalition of the seven Area Agencies on Aging in Minnesota.

The agencies share the common vision that:
* People age with dignity and independence
* Older adults are valuable contributors to society
* Policymakers know and act on issues of older persons and their families
* Communities offer support services that meet the changing needs of older adults

The association works to further this vision and support the individual agencies as they act as catalysts for positive change in their communities. Member agencies work at the local, regional, state, and federal levels.
Through the Area Agencies on Aging, m4a provides assistance to seniors, providers and communities across the state.

The agencies work in the following areas:
* Advocacy and Education - Collaborate to build support among stakeholders and the public for issues that affect an aging population
* Fund Distribution - Use community resources and public funding to build effective community services for older adults, with focus on low-income minority older adults and others with the greatest need
* Living Independently - Help people return to living independently in their homes after a nursing home or hospital stay
* Systems Change - Facilitate improvements in service delivery to meet needs of elders and their families
* Capacity Building - Provide technical assistance to increase the capacity of public, nonprofit, and private organizations to deliver priority services
* Information and Assistance - Provide information, education, and assistance through the Senior LinkAge LineĀ®, (800) 333-2433, to help elders and their families make informed choices
