St. Louis County helps people who are over the age of 65 or have a disability find life-enhancing services. Our goal is to increase independence, health, and safety so that people can live in their communities as independently as possible.
The MnCHOICES assessment allows for anyone of any age with a disability to access the support services needed to stay in their home. MnCHOICES helps make decisions about long-term services that help individuals thrive in their communities. Public health nurses and social workers assess individuals in-person to learn more about your needs, goals and choices to determine what services and help you might qualify for.
If you or a loved one need assistance at home, a MnCHOICES assessment is required to determine what long-term care programs and services are best for you. Even if you are not eligible for public benefits, a certified assessor can assist you in understanding what services, accommodations, and resources exist. Follow the steps below to get started.
