Fairbanks, Alaska - Caregiving Resources: Plentiful, with an Emphasis on Care
Intro by

The average annual temperature in Fairbanks, Alaska may only be 32 degrees F in its warmest year (1981) but the extraordinary resources available to seniors will quickly warm your heart. From state agencies to nonprofits providing meals and a social setting to Native American organizations putting the needs of elders first, the resources in Fairbanks for seniors are vast.

As a senior or a caregiver looking for resources to help a loved one, the North Star Council on Aging is a wonderful place to start. Chris Malmberg, Office Manager of North Star Council, describes the organization as, “a connection service” for seniors. North Star Council on Aging not only provides lunch and social activities Monday through Friday but also is a referral center for those looking for additional resources. They provide transportation to and from the facility and deliver meals through the Meals on Wheels program year round “up to 50 degrees below” (oh, is that all?).

The North Star Council on Aging was formed as a non-profit in 1973 is a “comprehensive agency to serve the needs of the elderly within the Fairbanks area.” The North Star Council on Aging provides a recreational day center for seniors as well as nutritious meals and information about other services available to seniors. This agency does not charge a fee as it is entirely supported through state, federal, city and private funding. Learn more about the NSCOA by calling: (907) 452-1735 (More general information continued after facilities section).

[Video] Assisted Living Directory Original Interview:
Cancer and Assisted Living: As we mentioned in the introduction to our Fairbanks assisted living page, Cancer is now becoming a much more accepted "condition" for people in assisted living or long-term care environments (dispelling the outdated myth that assisted living can only serve those who are elderly, or with memory disorders). Whether it is active Cancer, treatment, or post-chemo issues, assisted living can be a viable option for those who can no longer care for themselves independently. The following video interview was produced by Assisted Living Directory, and features a daughter who is coping with her mom's diagnosis, and considerations for housing - which include the possibility of assisted living.

Additional Information for Fairbanks

Continued from above

Homebound seniors are particularly at risk during the long winter months in Alaska and the North Star Council not only provides meals, social activities and transportation but essential referrals to other agencies and resources. North Star Council on Aging is but one safety net in an area where, as Chris says, “it is very dangerous to go without a safety net.” Chris enthuses that North Star Council on Aging is “geared toward maintaining autonomy” for seniors while being an integral part of that safety net. Learn more about what agencies on aging may be able to offer in terms of services, programs and assistance.

Additional local agencies in Fairbanks include the Fairbanks Native Association (http://www.fairbanksnative.org) whose mission is “to provide quality services in a professional manner for its membership and the greater Fairbanks community. These services are provided through special and innovative programs which preserve the membership’s unique lifestyle and culture, while improving the quality of life for the community.” The Fairbanks Native Association preserves the local culture of taking care of their elders.

In addition, a transportation service known as the “Van Tran” provides transportation for the elderly and disabled, an essential component to finding and accessing resources. More information on how to apply for this service can be found in their handbook at http://www.co.fairbanks.ak.us/transportation/Van_Tran_Handbook.pdf.

State resources can also be of assistance at the local level. The State of Alaska provides for Aging & Disability Resource Centers throughout the state. (http://hss.state.ak.us/dsds/grantservices/adrc.htm) These Resources Centers connect seniors or those with disabilities or their caregivers with resources available throughout the state. Resources are available through these centers for people of all ages and income levels. (The North Star Council on Aging is one such resource center).

In addition, many states offer a Waiver Program for home-based care, or funding for an Assisted Living Facility or Skilled Nursing Facility. Alaska is no exception. Information on the waiver programs available (and there are several depending on the situation) can be found at (http://www.hss.state.ak.us/dsds/grantservices/hcbwaivers.htm). As in other states, eligibility requirements vary and can be very specific. It is important to check the State of Alaska, Health and Human Services’ website or contact the agency for specific eligibility requirements.

Online support may be especially useful during what can be isolating winter months in Fairbanks. National online caregiver resources which are available at any time may help supplement the local support in Fairbanks. These online resources include:

American Association for Retired Persons (AARP) (www.aarp.org)
The Family Caregiver Alliance (www.caregiver.org)
National Family Caregivers Association (www.nfcacares.org)
National Alliance for Caregiving (www.caregiving.org)
VA Caregiver Support (www.caregiver.va.gov) (Fairbanks Veterans Center)
Well Spouse Association (www.wellspouse.org)

Additional educational and support resources specific to certain conditions are also available online.

Seniors and the disabled as well as their caregivers who need a clear path to resources, access to services and a community in which to seek support will find all of that and more in Fairbanks. Whether caring for a parent, spouse or other loved one in the city of Fairbanks or the outlying rural areas, the resources provided by the North Star Council on Aging, the State of Alaska resources as well as the national resources listed here will help provide enough comfort and security to warm any heart no matter what city a person lives in.
