Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging is Now Trellis
On March 31, 2021 by Libbie Chapuran
Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging has changed its name to Trellis. The change signals an expanded mission for the organization, beyond the original mission as the area agency on aging for the metro area.
Trellis will continue to be a regional leader in aging but will also provide services, information and innovations that connect and improve the lives of people across Minnesota and in ten other states.
“I am proud of the work that we have done as Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging over the past 26 years,” said Dawn Simonson, president and CEO of Trellis. “We have provided trusted and responsive support for individuals and organizations in our community and have developed strong, resilient networks. Trellis—with the imagery of life, growth and a structure for support—will take our work to new heights, helping people optimize well-being as they age. I am particularly encouraged by the progress we are making in developing partnerships with healthcare organizations to provide whole-person care to older adults in our communities.”
