Making Aging Easier

While the world keeps changing, DARTS is here to help. Whether you need assistance with navigating the community, support in your home, or assistance in your building, DARTS is creating connections that enrich aging.

In-Home Aging Guidance

As the world changes around us every day, it is hard to find what you need. We are here to be a resource, connecting you to your community and any assistance you may need. DARTS offers FREE resource guidance to Dakota residents ages 60+. Our service coordinators can help you identify the resources that you need to make aging easier. During a one-on-one meeting with one of our team members, they will help you identify the areas that you could use more assistance, share information about possible resources, offer emotional support, and assist with any applications.

Services can be challenging to navigate, and applications are sometimes confusing, but our team can alleviate the confusion. Whether you need assistance applying for county supports, or simply knowing which meal providers are available in your area, we are here to help. We can answer questions over the phone or schedule a time to come to your home and meet with you one-on-one. Call to schedule an appointment at 651-455-1560.

These services are funded in part by Dakota County.
