Active Aging Services

Grandpa gardening with grandsonIn an effort to become southeastern Minnesota’s primary choice for an age-friendly health system, Olmsted Medical Center’s Active Aging Services (AAS) program was created. At this time, the program provides resources, assists with referrals, allows for healthcare and mental healthcare navigation and ensures education for adults age 55 and better.  In addition, experienced staff will also be available to assist patient family members, caretakers, community partners and OMC staff.

Call, email, or speak with your healthcare provider about placing a referral to a licensed professional at OMC’s AAS to navigate OMC’s primary and specialty services and community resources.

You can expect a warm, personal response Monday through Friday from 7:30 am through 4:30 pm; messages can be left in the off hours. OMC is focused on providing patient-centered and integrated care to the fastest growing portion of our patient population, ensuring enhanced wellness.

Vision: To assist individuals in the OMC service area with identifying, achieving, and sustaining their quality of life indicators to facilitate active aging.

Objective: Experienced care staff will provide information and referrals to ensure assistance is arranged for housing, healthcare, mental healthcare, financial needs and social connections to meet every individual’s needs and/or goals.  AAS strives to encourage preventative health services, improved health and mental health, longevity and joyful and purposeful independence.
