New Single Access Point for Aging Resources in Cook County

New Single Access Point for Aging Resources in Cook County

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~   May 10, 2022  (LSNews)    The Cook County Aging Coalition is pleased to introduce Aging Well Resources Cook County, a new “one-stop” guide to local programs, events, and support. Aging Well Resources includes a comprehensive easy-to-use website designed for residents of Cook County, as well as a Care Navigator for phone assistance. It’s never been easier for Cook County seniors to find the information they need! For those who would rather speak directly to someone or who need help understanding support options, Care Navigator Christie John offers friendly assistance by phone by calling (218) 231-8903 or toll-free (855) 444-3910.

AgingWellResources.org provides access to local programs, regional resources, and a calendar of events for seniors. There are simple links to request more information about a program, find agency websites and phone numbers, or print brochures. The website’s straightforward design and uncomplicated navigation are the work of Grand Marais-based Molly Larson of Sweetwater Design.

“Aging Well Resources will also make it easier for our aging service partners to assist their clients. They will be able to depend on us to send referrals and update the website with current resource and event information,” said Christie John.

Aging Well Resources is a collaborative effort of the Cook County Aging Coalition, which is comprised of representatives from many area service providers, including Care Partners of Cook County, Cook County Council on Aging/The Hub, Cook County Public Health & Human Services and In-Home Support, Grand Portage Health Service, Grand Portage Human Services, Grand Portage Elderly Nutrition Program, North Shore Health Care Foundation, and North Shore Health Hospital & Care Center. Care Partners of Cook County was awarded a $65,000 grant through Northland Foundation’s Integrated Rural Community Aging Program to help the Coalition improve access to
aging services.
