Keeping people independent and in their homes, and providing support to their caregivers are important components of United Way’s goal to maximize independence for seniors and people with disabilities. Meet Margaret and her family, who are receiving support and caregiver services through FamilyMeans, a Greater Twin Cities United Way partner agency.

This video is one of a trio which provide much-needed personal and emotional dimensions to Greater Twin Cities United Way’s annual Community Report. These videos tell the stories of individuals and families whose lives are enriched by United Way programs and funding in health, education, and basic needs. Community Report: Health provides a glimpse into one aspect of United Way’s impact in the area of health: home care respite, day programs, and family support for an aging adult with dementia.
