Serving seniors in transition and their family caregivers to support health in spirit, mind, and body since 1998.
The Normandale Center for Healing and Wholeness (the Center) is a mission outreach program of Normandale Lutheran Church serving the entire community. The Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to “walk with” seniors, their family members, friends and caregivers, to provide support for healthy aging in body, mind & spirit.
Founded in 1998, the Center serves over 500 seniors and family members annually residing in Edina, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, Bloomington, Richfield and the surrounding Southwest suburban area.
The Center is financially supported through generous gifts from Normandale Lutheran Church and its members, as well as Senior Care Communities, The Older Americans Act (Trellis), Juniper, corporate contributions, grants and individual donations.
The Center's approach to serving seniors and caregivers is relationship-based - that is, to build on the capacity and strengths of the senior and family, and make use of volunteer and paid staff to maximize positive impact while minimizing costs.
We work to support seniors and their family caregivers through holistic services and collaborative programming. We strive to:
Maintain mental, physical and emotional health
Enhance quality of life
Alleviate caregiver burden
We're Here For You
Many people come to the Center for one need, but return for other programs and services—ultimately working with a variety of staff and volunteers to access the broad spectrum of services the Center has to offer.
We view this as a positive affirmation of the quality of the connections developed with individuals and their families.
