Help us help people in your Minnesota community in Carlton County.

Become a Senior LinkAge Line volunteer Medicare Counselor and help people in your Minnesota community. We have opportunities to do Medicare counseling, give presentations on Medicare and Medicare fraud awareness, and to help staff outreach events in our communities.

Volunteer training classes are available online so please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to get started on your training.

Counselors help Medicare consumers in Minnesota, their families, and caregivers, better understand Medicare options by providing information and referrals regarding resources. Counselors will also help Medicare consumers in Minnesota enroll in programs that could assist with health insurance costs and reduce prescription drug costs.

Upon a successful background check, and the completion of the 18-hour training class, volunteers will receive certification through the Minnesota Board on Aging as a Health Insurance Counselor with the State Health Insurance and Assistance Program (SHIP).

Volunteers will receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance and outreach to older Americans in your community.

If you are interested in volunteering to become a Medicare counselor in your community then please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at the Senior LinkAge Line, at 800.333.2433, Ext. 81019.

About Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging

Mission Statement

The mission is to support successful aging in the Arrowhead region of Northeastern Minnesota. The goal of the Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging (AAAA) is to be a catalyst in building communities where seniors live with dignity, mutual respect and shared responsibilities across generations and cultures. Our three primary functions are to: link people to information, services and support through the Senior LinkAge Line; promote health for older adults and family caregivers; and assist local communities and organizations to develop and sustain services. The Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging is a division of the Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC). ARDC is a regional planning and development agency serving the counties of Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, and St. Louis in Northeast Minnesota.


Our organization provides free, one-on-one assistance to people with Medicare and their families via telephone and face-to-face sessions, public education presentations, and other programs. We work directly with people on their Medicare questions. We can help them better understand their Medicare plans, their prescription drug plan options, and help them find services for Medicare Consumers in their community.
