Our Facility

Since our founding, we had been working out of the Mary MacDonald school building which serves as the Lake County Service Center. It provided a great location for our small team, but as our organization grew, so did the need for a larger space. Our dreams came true in March of 2020 as we gratefully received the donation of the former Wells Fargo bank building in Silver Bay. We immediately began thinking of the amazing aging services and senior support that we could provide in this spacious location at the center of town. 


Fast forward to today, our building has become a buzzing beehive of activity! Our location is highly visible and accessible to community members and our services and activity offerings have absolutely blossomed in this new space. With a large community room and large conference room, we have an ideal setting for meetings like our Caregiver and Grief Support Groups, for aging-related workshops, and especially for fun activities like twice-weekly Coffee Connection group, arts and crafts, games and more!

Legal Hub


Have you recently lost a spouse, do you need a power of attorney, did you recently get married or divorced? These are just some life changes where you might want legal advice.

We partnered with the Legal Kiosk Project to connect community members with the Legal Aid Service of Northeastern MN (LASNEM) through a Legal Kiosk located right in our building! This kiosk offers community members of all ages (you do not need to be 60+) the ability to apply for civil legal aid services, access legal resources, and attend online meetings and remote court hearings in privacy.

If you'd like to use the Legal Kiosk at North Shore Area Partners, please call 218-226-3635 to schedule an appointment. If you prefer to email, please contact our Office Administrator, at

Medical Equipment Loan Closet

We have an on-site, free medical equipment loan closet for individuals in need of durable medical equipment for either short term or long-term use.

We have:

  • Canes

  • Commodes

  • Incontinence supplies

  • Shower chairs and transfer bath benches

  • Toilet risers

  • Walkers

  • Wheeled walkers (with seat)

  • Wheelchairs (manual)

  • Much more!

We currently are only accepting donations of canes. Please stop in or call us at 218-226-3635 with any questions!

North Shore Area Partners is a great asset to this area with resources into which can be tapped when required. Due to a need for a hospital bed, we reached out to them requesting one through the medical closet. We were informed none were kept on hand, but they would be willing to locate one. Within two days of our request a bed became available through a generous donation. They linked us with the necessary contact information, and we now have it our possession. We are grateful to have such an organization available in our county and will recommend their services to others.
