The Highland Block Nurse Program has been serving older adults and their caregivers in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul since 1987.
About Highland Block Nurse Program
Our goal is to help people remain in their own homes or apartments as long as possible. We provide a wide variety of services, including in-home registered nurse and home health aide visits, escorted rides to appointments, grocery shopping/errands, and caregiver support and respite.
Funding for Highland Block Nurse Program is provided by the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Ramsey County, the City of St. Paul and Title III (federal funding). We also serve the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood south of St. Clair Ave. and east to Lexington Parkway. We are part of the Living At Home Network.

Line Up Our Services
Services are for those age 65 and over and their caregivers.
Charges are on a sliding fee schedule (Fees are negotiable and on a sliding scale).
If purchased at market rate, it would typically cost $25-$30 for an hour of chore service, respite care or an escorted ride. We can offer these services at affordable rates thanks to our volunteers, public funders and individual donors who support our work in the community.
