Central Minnesota Elder Network

Enriching the lives of seniors by creating meaningful social connections.

Central MN Elder Network is dedicated to helping adults meet the challenges associated with aging or caregiving.

“I started volunteering for Elder Network three years ago because I thought spending a little time with a client would  brighten up THEIR  life.  Three years later, I have to admit that I have RECEIVED so much happiness spending time with my client. I believe I truly do brighten up her life.  I KNOW my life is brighter with my Elder Network client in it."


View Our Programs

Our services and programs are provided by trained and compassionate volunteers and coordinated by a staff of professionals committed to enriching the lives of adults through companionship, socialization, friendly listening, or caregiver relief. We are here to help our older community members and/or their caregivers thrive within their specific situations. We have been a leading provider of volunteer visiting services to people aged 55 and older in Douglas County, MN, since 1997.



We are a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and are funded by the generous gifts of individuals, grants, businesses, churches, and service groups. All donations are tax-deductible.



As a volunteer, you will work along with a program coordinator to provide support and companionship to older adults.
