A little help can go a long way

DARTS recognizes the shifting needs that senior homeowners may experience when they choose to ‘age in place’. Home services for seniors, such as assistance with light household chores and outdoor yard work, can ease the burdens of home maintenance and allow families to focus on quality time.

At this time, DARTS is continuing home services. Homemakers will call households prior to visits to verify the client wants in-home service. DARTS is following Minnesota Department of Health guidelines to ensure safety for all.

To help prevent isolation, DARTS is maintaining weekly phone or email contact.
