The Vision for Healthy Living is a partnership between the Normandale Center for Healing & Wholeness and the Normandale Lutheran Church, intended to promote an integrative vision of health and enable healthy living in our communities by caring for the needs of the mind, body and spirit. The Vision launched almost a year ago and has been going strong ever since.


What is the Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness?


The Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness (the Center) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that “walks with” seniors and their family members to provide support for healthy aging in body, mind & spirit.

Founded in 1998, the Center served over 500 seniors and family members last year residing in Edina, Minneapolis, Bloomington, and the surrounding metropolitan area.

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.

In that spirit we strive to:

  • Establish or maintain seniors’ connections with their communities
  • Work to alleviate isolation
  • Maintain / improve health
  • Extend independence
  • Enhance quality of life
  • Alleviate caregiver burden
  • Support caregivers’ capacity in their supportive roles
