Our Story

Eventide Lutheran Home became a reality after many members of area Lutheran congregations joined in a commitment with local business individuals and volunteered their efforts to create a place to care for elders in this community. The first resident was admitted on April 1, 1963. 

Today, we have grown to add services, programs, and facilities to better assist individuals in this community. We house 62 independent living units, 36 assisted living units, and a 84-bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center. Most recently, we replaced our original nursing facility, and have reimagined the way in which care services are provided. The replacement, Gracewell Nursing Facility, opened its doors on April 5, 2022.

Eventide Senior Living Community is governed by a local Board of Directors comprised of delegates from the area Lutheran Churches and the local Chamber and Development Council. Being a non-profit organization, the bottom line is not about profits…it’s about exceeding the expectations of our residents, families, and employees.


We strive to be the Health Care Provider of Choice and the Employer of Choice by understanding and exceeding the expectations of our Residents, Families, and Employees.


To be a leader and a resource in the region for comprehensive aging services.

Non-Profit Status

Eventide Senior Living is a non-profit charitable organization and is a tax exempt entity under section 501(c)(3). As a not-for-profit organization, we manage the finances in accordance with our missions. We are not driven by daily pressure to increase our “bottom line” for our owners, investors, or share holders.

Quality, not earnings, is the barometer of a not-for-profit organization’s efforts. All proceeds in a not-for-profit are reinvested in improving the physical environment, serving more people, offering more and better accommodations and services, and ultimately fulfilling the organization’s mission.

We believe in the power and importance of relationships among our residents, their families, staff, and the community. We would not be anywhere without the relationships with so many people and organizations that have contributed to who we are today.

“Do not cast me off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength is spent.” Psalm 71:9 (RSV)
