About Us.

Services for senior housing development.

Ecumen has owned and operated senior living communities since 1862, when the Lutheran Church began providing foster care in Minnesota. With more than 150 years of experience as a leader in senior housing, we offer unique expertise in developing senior living communities.

In 2004, our growing organization changed its name to Ecumen, which comes from the Greek word for “home.” Our identity underscores our mission to create home for older adults wherever they choose to live.

Today, we own, operate and manage for our partners more than 40 senior living communities in Minnesota and beyond. Over the years, we have become the most innovative leader in senior housing and services, empowering individuals to live richer and fuller lives.

As a provider of consulting services for senior housing developers nationwide, we bring a wealth of experience to creating new senior living communities.

As a long-term provider of senior housing, we differ from other developers. We are experts in every aspect of building and operating a financially successful community.
