We Are There For Our Neighbors.

 

Lutheran Life Villages has been providing compassionate, spiritually connected care to seniors since 1931. What started as the “Oak Street Home” has evolved to several thriving senior communities across Northeast Indiana. While a lot has changed, our mission to serve seniors in our communities has remained the same. And as we continue to grow to serve our 55+ population, we will always strive to provide a better way of living for our residents, staff, and everyone in our community.

Mission Statement

As an expression of Christ’s love, we serve individuals and their caregivers with compassion and respect for independence, wellness, and spiritual life.

Leadership
