Cliff Vrieze of Spring Valley began looking into Medicare enrollment just before his 65th birthday four years ago. Without help, this proved to be a frustrating and confusing experience. But Katie, certified Medicare counselor and aging expert at Senior LinkAge Line®, explained Medicare and answered all of Cliff’s questions.
This August, the Senior LinkAge Line® celebrates 20 years of serving older Minnesotans and their families by connecting them at no cost to the resources they need. The Senior LinkAge Line® is marking this milestone by unveiling a new 20-year anniversary logo, which will be prominently featured at the Minnesota Board on Aging’s booth in the Education Building at the Minnesota State Fair.
The Senior LinkAge Line®, 1-800-333-2433, has grown in breadth and depth of services since it was first established by the Minnesota Board on Aging in 1994. Most recently, under the Dayton-Prettner Solon Administration, the Senior Linkage Line® has become a One Stop Shop for Minnesota Seniors, helping callers to access services in other state agencies, find out about volunteer and employment opportunities and information about “Own Your Future” so they can plan for long-term care as they age.
