DHS partners with counties, tribes, providers, consumer groups, advocacy organizations and other partners in human services to address Minnesotans' needs.
DHS strives to help people live with choices and as independently as possible for as long as possible. Our partnerships with care providers and others are essential to our success. To help meet the needs of older Minnesotans and people with disabilities, the Continuing Care Administration manages a number of programs and services.

Information on programs and supports for older adults and their caregivers
Information and opportunities to help Minnesotans who are deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing and their family to effectively access service in their communities
Policies and programs to help people with disabilities find the resources they need to live with choices and as independently as possible
