Missouri Slope was awarded a three-year grant from Lutheran Services of America to address the increasing number of underserved and isolated older adults in rural communities experiencing difficulty accessing services and supports to successfully age at home.

With deep understanding that older adults face in rural communities Missouri Slope has developed a new line of service, Missouri Slope at Home (MS@Home, MSHOME) and the Rural Aging Action Network (RAAN) have been developed.

Missouri Slope at Home has created a partnership with other providers to create the Rural Aging Action Network (RAAN) to collaborate on meeting the needs in our rural communities. 

Missouri Slope at Home exists to empower older adults in our region to age with independence, dignity and purpose in the community of their choice. Our program allows aging adults to get the assistance they need to live happily, healthy, and safely, while remaining in the home they love. 

Following a consultation, we will customize home care based on individual needs and preferences. 

Our caregivers are ready to help you, your family member, friends or neighbors to age happily and safely in the comforts of home while providing their families with peace of mind.

Services are available in preset packages which can be paired with other services based on individual need.
