Normandale Awarded Title III-E Funding Award – 2017
The Center for Healing and Wholeness has long been a provider of caregiver education, one-on-one help, and other support. For the fourth year in a row we were awarded supplemental funding for those who are providing regular care for a person age 60 or over under “Title III” of the Older Americans Act. What this means is that we have some regular funding to help cover a portion of our costs, allowing us to reach more people who need information, guidance, planning, coaching, and education to address their caregiving situation.
Any family member or spouse helping a loved one who is age 60+ is encouraged to contact the Center for:
- Information or guidance about options for “aging in place”
- One-on-one individual resource counseling (for elder, spouse, or family members)
- Holding a family meeting for action planning and to get everyone “on the same page”
- Help to access in-home services, and caregiver tips, strategies, and support
- Group education
Minnesota REACH II Funding Award – 2017
The Center for Healing & Wholeness has been awarded supplemental funding to make the Minnesota REACH II caregiver support service model available to the community. Caregivers of persons with memory loss face unique challenges that affect their everyday lives. The REACH (Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer’s Caregivers Health) program funding means that we will be able to provide services to more caregivers facing these daily challenges, having a positive effect on them as well as their friends and loved ones.
City of Edina Funding Award – 2017
The Normandale Center for Healing & Wholeness has been awarded funding through the City of Edina Health and Human Services department.

The Metropolitan Area Agency on Aging, Inc. has awarded the Center funding to support “A Matter of Balance”, our senior wellness program designed to reduce falls risks while also improving balance, strength and flexibility.
