Senior LinkAge Line

The Senior LinkAge Line is a free statewide service of the Minnesota Board on Aging in partnership with Minnesota’s area agencies on aging. The Senior LinkAge Line assists older Minnesotans and caregivers, by connecting them to local services, finding answers and getting the help they need. 

The Senior LinkAge Line is Minnesota’s federally designated long-term care options counseling service, State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) and Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC).

The Senior LinkAge Line can help Minnesotans with many age-related issues and can answer questions.
