We provide volunteer & professional assistance to enable elders to remain in their homes with indepependence, dignity & choice.
Hamline Midway Elders was founded in 2001 by a group of volunteers and
community leaders as a neighborhood nonprofit organization that provides
services to help seniors live independently at home.
Our goals and objectives are the following:
1. Help enable seniors to remain living in
their homes for as long as they choose by coordinating formal and informal
services including Live Well at Home screenings, transportation, chore
services, friendly visits/phone calls, caregiver support, blood pressure
checks, information & referrals, and service coordination.
2. Provide seniors and other community members with education and social interaction opportunities by coordinating a variety of health/wellness promotion activities including monthly luncheons, exercise classes, chair yoga classes, baked goods giveaways, book giveaway events, library presentations, discussion series, and several annual community events.
We accomplish a great deal with just two part-time staff - because the strength of our program is the generous support of over 150 community volunteers who are committed to improving the lives of neighborhood seniors.
