Since 1988, Southeast Seniors has been helping over 300 seniors annually live well at home with an enhanced quality of life. Please join us.
Southeast Seniors, A Living at Home Block Nurse Program was created by the Southeast Minneapolis neighborhood in 1988 to help neighborhood seniors have help to stay living at home and to provide an alternative to having to move to a nursing home. We serve the neighborhoods of Como, Marcy Holmes and Prospect Park in Minneapolis and are part of the Living at Home Network of 43 similar programs around the state. We contract with Fairview Home Care for in-home nursing services.
We all know how health care costs have been increasing. This hits our seniors hard. At Southeast Seniors, we bill Medicare and other insurance for medical home care services. But, insurance does not cover a lot of the services seniors need to stay at home. This is where you can help your neighbors. Your contributions allow Southeast Seniors to fill in the gaps. With your assistance, we can subsidize care for seniors with our sliding fee scale and keep them safely in their homes as well as provide a range of volunteer and in-home services.
