We Are Neighbors Helping Neighbors... 

ElderNet of Lower Merion and Narberth is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1976 by representatives of community, religious and governmental groups. ElderNet serves adults of all ages, especially frail older or younger disabled persons with low to moderate incomes who reside in Lower Merion or Narberth.

ElderNet helps older neighbors remain independent and provides a variety of free, practical services so they have access to healthcare, food security, and an improved quality of life. ElderNet also provides information to individuals who need assistance with housing, nursing care, or other necessities.

ElderNet is staffed by professional social workers and trained volunteers. ElderNet receives funds from community residents, Montgomery County Office on Aging and Adult Services, Lower Merion Township, the Borough of Narberth, national foundations, businesses, churches, synagogues and other groups.

ElderNet is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A copy of our official registration and financial information may be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State by calling the toll free number, 1-800-732-0999. Registration does not imply endorsement. See ElderNet's 990 HERE.
