The Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness, based in Edina, Minnesota, is a nonprofit, faith-founded 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 over 500 older persons and family members each year in Edina, Bloomington, and surrounding areas. The Center provides ”Caregiver Consultation”, resource coordination, family meetings, caregiver education, volunteer support, health education, wellness, memory support activities, screening clinics, foot care, loaner equipment, and other support services and assistance to elders and family members or friends helping an older person. Six part-time staff and over 100 volunteers come together to provide these services. The Center is financially supported through Older American Act funds, corporate contributions, individual donations, and grants. 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
