About Us

About Elder Resource Association – South of the River

The Elder Resource Association (ERA) is a group of professionals in the South of the River market dedicated to improving the lives of seniors. We meet every other month to collaborate, and share news of what is happening in the market place. We are an inclusive organization that is welcoming and non-competitive. We encourage members to enhance their knowledge of services available for seniors in our market place so we can each serve our clients more effectively.

ERA publishes The Senior Guide each year. The guide features senior housing and services in Burnsville, Apple Valley, Lakeville, Eagan, Savage, Farmington, Prior Lake and surrounding cities. We invite members and non members to be listing in The Guide although members do receive special recognition in The Guide.

ERA also holds the Aging and Wellness Expo each spring. This has become a highly anticipated and attended event by older adults in the area. It’s the signature event for older adults to learn about services available to them, and for professionals to network with each other. To learn more about this event, see the Aging and Wellness Expo Tab.
