Quick Access

• This NEW program for Sault Tribe Elders is designed to establish key relationships with tribal elders and families in their homes. The Elder Outreach Worker coordinates programs and services to help tribal elders maintain a good quality of life and age in place.

• Outreach Workers travel to tribal elders’ homes to assess and identify elders and family needs and finding resources to meet those needs.

• They also organize and promote elder involvement in aging programs.

• They will assist in the coordination of home care services and provide assistance to tribal elders in completing applications for tribal service programs and assist in the coordination of meals-on-wheels services, transportation, and any other service needs of tribal elders.

• Areas of assistance may include physical, mental, psychological and/or social as it relates to aging.

• There are 4 full-time Elder Outreach Workers covering the 7 county service area stationed in each end of the Upper Peninsula.
