East Side Elders

The former Payne-Phalen Elders and Dayton’s Bluff Seniors are merging this summer.  Our Living at Home Network Bock Nurse Program will now be known as East Side Elders.  The new organization will include both Saint Paul voting districts 4 & 5 in Ward 6.


Our dedicated team of volunteers helps seniors stay happier, healthier, and more connected in their homes and communities. Contact us today and we’ll find a volunteer opportunity that matches your interests and skills!

Wish List

East Side Elders relies on grants, contributions, and volunteers to continue to provide services to seniors at no cost.  From time to time we like to take a few small items to our clients to cheer them up or just as a nice thing to do.

Welcome to East Side Elders

East Side Elders Living at Home / Block Nurse Program is a non-profit community based service organization which operates with the financial support of our community, private and public agencies and foundations, local churches, neighbors and friends.  We collaborate with community members and organizations to create and maintain resources to help seniors overcome barriers to remain living in their homes.

Our mission is to build a circle of care around the elders in Dayton’s Bluff and Payne-Phalen neighborhoods, empowering seniors to live safe and independent in their homes, to prevent falls and support the persons caring for the senior.

Our History

For over twenty-five years, non-profit, community-owned Living at Home/Block Nurse Programs have helped elders stay healthy while living in their own homes. Living at Home Network was established as a resource center to support these community efforts and extend the Program model to new neighborhoods, towns and cities. In turn, elders remain safe and independent, while still socially involved in their communities.

If you need elder services, want to start a Program in your community, want to volunteer, support this Program with your gift or just want to learn more, we welcome your contact and look forward to getting to know you.
