About

Join us and become a Volunteer in 2017.

We are looking for one more person to become a Senior LinkAge Line volunteer counselor in the Grand Marais area. Can you help?

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

If you are interested in volunteering please contact us. Upon a successful background check and the completion of the three-day 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).

Our next three-day training class will be held in Duluth from 9 AM to 4 PM on Monday and Tuesday April 17 and 18 and the following Monday, April 24, 2017.

Volunteers will receive staff support, guidance, and on-going training as you provide assistance and outreach to seniors.

If you are interested in becoming a Medicare counselor and have questions now please contact me. Please contact Lee Swenson, Volunteer Coordinator with the Senior LinkAge Line at 218-529-7539.
