We provide volunteer & professional assistance to enable elders to remain in their homes with independence, 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.
The goals & objectives of our services/programs for the next two years are to:
1. Implement an expansion plan (developed through Board/staff strategic planning) by hiring an additional staff, coordinating outreach in the newer part of our service area, and developing new individual and group programming.
2. 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.
3. Provide seniors and other community members with education and social interaction opportunities in their neighborhood by coordinating a variety of health/wellness promotion activities including monthly luncheons, exercise classes, chair yoga classes, book giveaway events, library presentations, and several annual community events.
We accomplish a great deal with just three 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.
