Neighborhood Network for Seniors


The Merriam Park Living At Home/Block Nurse Program (now using the d.b.a. name Neighborhood Network for Seniors) – Helping the seniors of St. Paul Districts 13 “Union Park” and 8 “Summit University” (between University Ave. and Summit Ave / between The Cathedral and the Mississippi River or 280) stay at home safely since 1991.

We are a local, neighborhood supported organization that provides seniors and their families the support needed to stay healthy and independent, living at home safely, securely and connected to their community. We offer private, personal needs assessment for both seniors and for individuals caring for a senior or other person with memory problems.

  • Affordable in-home nursing services on a sliding scale fee basis provided by a licensed home-care partner
  • Occasional transportation to necessary appointments
  • Connecting seniors with affordable chore services
  • Providing neighborhood volunteers who provide companionship and a neighborly helping hand
  • Connecting caregivers to support, information and training
