About Us: Our mission is “Helping Seniors Live Independently with Dignity”. 

Since 1973 Northeast Senior Services, Inc., has been helping seniors for over 50 years. North East Senior Citizen Resource Center was started 1973 by local churches and community organizations and incorporated as Northeast Senior Citizens Resourse Center in 1975.  In 2010 the name was changed to Northeast Senior Services, Inc. Our service area is Northeast Minneapolis, St. Anthony Village, Columbia Heights and New Brighton. More than 50 volunteers make it possible for us to help seniors with rides and other services that help seniors live independently in their homes.  

Northeast Senior Services helps in four programs to achieve our mission:  RIDES, NE Senior Wellness, NE Senior Home Connection and Free Medical Equipment.  

RIDES: Volunteer drivers give round trip rides to seniors from home to appointment and back again. Service area seniors 60+  get rides to the seven county metro area for medical, eye, dental, grocery, legal, barber/beauty appointments and more.   A 10.00 donation is recommended for this service. Caring hands make sure the senior gets into the vehicle and to the door of their destination.  Volunteer drivers are needed. Volunteers are vetted, trained and supported for the 2-3 rides they give each month. If you want to make a life affirming contribution please call 612-781-5096 to be a driver. 

NE Senior Wellness:  Features a free Tuesday Bingo Club for homebound seniors via phone/landline and computer. Tuesdays 1:30 to 2:30 PM. Additional players welcome. Call 612-781-5096 to register. Another volunteer bingo coordinator/caller, who is comfortable with google meet is being sought to volunteer once a month. Other wellness helps include consulting seniors about medicare/medicaid Part A, B, C & D along with supplemental insurance options. We aim to bring back the senior indoor walking track events this winter to keep seniors active and healthy. 

NE Senior Home Connection: Annual housing fair events are held every autumn. Topics of interest September 20, 2023 included Wills & Trusts, Elderly Waiver, CADI Waiver and Adult Protection Services and Reporting. Speakers included lawyers Margaret "Pook Grathwol & Jessica Keating, Nancy Haugen from Elder Voices Advocates/Elder IQ and Deb Schmit Adult Protection - Services Hennepin County.  Eight Senior Housing Providers were on hand to assist seniors with housing choices and 8 senior services providers such as Carol Larson's homebond Nail Service and the Minnesota Society for the Blind were also present to help. 

FREE Medical Equipment: NE Seniors has a inventory of bath chairs, walkers, some rollators, canes and other devices to help seniors live independently. Medicare and other insurances do not cover medical equipment so the cost to get a walker may prevent a senior from recovering at home.  Donations of free equipment are needed and welcome. We need a volunteer inventory coordinator. If you are detail oriented and like to make a big difference in peoples lives this is it. 

NE Senior Services Quarterly Newsletter - More than 30% of seniors do not have email or do not know how to use it. This mailing list reaches nearly 1000 seniors and 150 senior caregivers and providers.

Information and Referral - Northeast Senior Services makes over phone based 500 referrals to seniors. Seniors without internet call us to look up applications for them. Popular sites requested include, Metro Mobility & Medicare, Social Security, County Medical Services, food pantries, other transportation programs, senior housing options, homebound foot and finger nail care, snowplowing, lawn care and housekeeping providers, Home Health Companies and many more.
