Serving elders & caregivers in the Southwest metro area.
The Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness, based in Edina, Minnesota, is a nonprofit organization that “walks with” older adults and their family members to support them in body, mind & spirit. This community organization was founded in 1998.
The Center serves around 500 older persons and family members each year in Edina, Bloomington, Eden Prairie, South Minneapolis and surrounding areas. The Center provides friendly visitors through volunteers, health education, wellness classes, screening / prevention clinics, resource consultation, foot care, loaner adaptive equipment and other support services. Four part-time staff and over 120 volunteers come together to provide these services. The Center relies on donations and grants to operate.
Our founders sought to create a center that would support seniors and their family caregivers through holistic services and collaborative programming.
We strive to:
- Establish or maintain seniors’ connections with their communities
- Alleviate isolation
- Maintain / improve health
- Extend independence
- Enhance quality of life
For family caregivers, we strive to:
- Alleviate caregiver burden
- Improve caregivers’ capacity to continue in their supportive roles
