From the founding of the Danish Old People’s Home in 1923, the organization that is now the Northwest Danish Association has made care for community elders a primary concern.

The Association provides medical, housing, and transportation assistance to elders to help them stay in their own homes longer and be a part of a social community. The seniors program has evolved to also include services and activities that provide quality-of-life enriching social and educational opportunities for the growing number of independent seniors within our community. The value in Danish tradition for an active, engaged life for all, forms the basis of the Association’s seniors program. Events offered by the Northwest Danish Association of interest to many seniors in our community, include our monthly volunteer event called The Work Party and our monthly luncheon called Onsdagsklubben.

The ElderCare Program at the Northwest Danish Association provides the elderly with:

  • Lifeline Medical Alert Systems
  • Amplified phone systems
  • Aids such as walkers and wheelchairs
  • Various social programs, luncheons, and dinners
  • Home phone calls made by our ElderCare Committee to provide a social link to those in need

Events and programs at the Association also provide opportunities for people to connect with Danish traditions and language.
