Living At Home Network
For over thirty years, the Living At Home Network has been the resource center that supports the non-profit, community-owned Living at Home/Block Nurse Programs that help Minnesota's elders stay healthy, safe and independent while living in their own homes. In turn, these communities are made stronger by the continued contributions of their elders.
The Living at Home Network also works to extend the program model to new neighborhoods, towns and cities. Become a member now and start a Living At Home/Block Nurse Program in your town! (See the Program Locator for a listing of the current programs in the Living at Home Network.) See our LAH Program Handbook 6-14-19.
