Saint John’s Commitment to Older Adults Throughout Milwaukee County

Saint John’s Institute On Aging believes the future should be something to look forward to at every age. That the hopes, dreams and ambitions of those over 65 are not only alive and well, they are as vibrant and strong as ever. And that the realization of those aspirations is the cornerstone of a healthy community.

The Institute on Aging, a venture of Saint John’s On The Lake, is a natural extension of the organization’s 150+ year history of working with older adults.   Throughout our history we have served the greater community through health care for those on Medicaid, meals on wheels, and financial and in-kind support to multiple organizations.  The Institute on Aging deepens Saint John’s commitment to the residents of Milwaukee County through education, grants, project partnerships rooted in community engagement
