Aitkin County CARE Inc. in Aitkin, was the recipient of a $5,000 Community Investment Grant from local energy transportation company Enbridge.

Funds donated to the group will support efforts to expand services to fill gaps within Aitkin County. The mission of Aitkin County C.A.R.E., Inc. is to enhance and promote the independence, dignity, value and well-being of older and disabled adults and those who care for them. Services include homemaking, respite care, evidence based health classes such as Tai Ji Quan and SAIL, and Meals on Wheels, to name just a few. Caregiver consultations are also provided to offer support, resources and counseling to caregivers so that you can take care of yourself while caring for your family member or friend. C.A.R.E. also helps connect caregivers and seniors with services in the community to meet their individual needs, thereby maintaining and extending independent living.
