2nd Half with Lyngblomsten
A Center for Enriching Lives after 50
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted senior service organizations across the state, including 2nd Half with Lyngblomsten. Now more than ever, our mission of supporting adults ages 50+ in engaging, discovering, and thriving in the second half of life is needed in our communities.
2nd Half with Lyngblomsten continues to offer programs, resources, and support to older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic, albeit in a modified form. Following recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and other federal and state agencies, we’ve shifted to offering our programs virtually via telephone calls, emails, and online meetings. No in-person opportunities will be offered for the remainder of 2020 (this includes The Gathering group respite program).

We continue to offer services and support to caregivers. Visit our Caregiver Services page for more details.
