Alternative care

The alternative care program supports certain home and community-based services for eligible Minnesotans, age 65 and older. This cost-sharing program provides home and community-based services to help seniors delay and prevent the transition from care in their homes to nursing facility level of care.

The program shares the cost of care with seniors and helps them to make best use of the resources they have. The end goal is to prevent seniors from falling into poverty.
