Catholic Senior Connection is a new partnership between Ascension Church and Catholic Eldercare that offers care consultation for older adults and their families. There is no charge for this consultation. Its purpose is help families secure the services needed for older adults to age successfully, whether in their homes or in assisted living or long-term care, if necessary.
As we and our parents advance in age, it can be very challenging – and even overwhelming – trying to understand what care needs are required and where to find the correct services. By connecting with Catholic Senior Services through Ascension, a Licensed Social Worker (Care Consultant) is available to: come to your home and get to know you; consult with your family; listen, learn, and understand your particular situation and needs; help identify and connect you to appropriate resources; develop a care plan based upon your personal input; follow-up on the care plan and stay in close contact to ensure the plan is working effectively; and be available for phone calls and visits as needed.
In addition, the Care Consultant will help connect you to senior housing, transportation solutions, home care services, caregiver support and coaches, home services (cleaning, chores, errands), meal delivery, and more.
There are fliers at the main entrance of the church. If you’d like more information, please contact Cindy Boggs, Pastoral Associate, 612.529.9684, or Kathleen Hendren, LSW, Care Consultant, Catholic Eldercare, 612.605.2509.
