Hmong Seniors Program
The goal of the Hmong Seniors Program is to improve quality of life and prevent long-term nursing home placements by connecting Hmong seniors and their caregivers to support services in the community. CAPI’s Live Well initiative is expanding its services to 250 socially isolated North Minneapolis Hmong seniors and caregivers in partnership with Northpoint Health and Wellness, Hennepin County and The Family Partnership.
CAPI provides information and referrals to Hmong Seniors about housing, medical and financial services, including senior housing, Medicare/Medicaid, social security benefits, food stamps, and energy assistance. CAPI’s bilingual staff are also able to provide interpretation and translation services for Hmong Seniors.
CAPI Caregiver & Eldercare
The CAPI Caregiver and Eldercare program encourages independent living for elderly refugees by empowering their caregivers. CAPI works with caregivers who provide care for their elderly relatives (grandparents, parents, and other members of their extended family), serving as a resource as they confront the economic, social, and medical difficulties often associated with caring for their loved ones.
Through this program, caregivers gain the skills necessary to access support services and become empowered to make decisions that will improve the quality of life for them and their elderly loved ones. To enroll in CAPI’s Caregiver and Eldercare, contact us

• Social program activities
