Welcome Home Creating a community where life is worth living.

Moving from your home into a Care Center can leave many individuals with anxiety. At Johnson Memorial Health Services (JMHS), we understand that no two people are alike; nor are their care needs.

You will feel right at home in Johnson Memorial Health Services new Care Center. It incorporates the popular neighborhood concept, which provides public spaces near the front entrance and living areas located back in a more private area. JMHS is also a VA Certified Facility. The Care Center is also a Certified Eden Alternative Member. We are one of two Care Centers in Minnesota included on the Registry.

Built in 2018, our Care Center was designed to not only meet changing expectations for our residents but changing attitudes as well. The updated homey environment helps us to facilitate the “Eden Alternative” concepts of aging that promote living lives full of meaningful and joyful experiences.

Resident rooms are split into two neighborhoods that house a kitchen with dining areas, spa and quiet spaces designed with more privacy for visiting. Residents enjoy the delicious aromas from baking and cooking in the Neighborhood Kitchen and Dining rooms.

Flanking both sides of the Neighborhood Kitchen and Dining areas is a media room and Library.

The Town Center, located at the main entrance, is the “hub” of all activity.


The activity program is designed to provide meaningful and interesting activities and opportunities for everyone as posted on the monthly calendar and in the daily newsletter. Planned and spontaneous activities provide residents with opportunities for reminiscing, mental stimulation, education, creative expression, socialization, friendly competition, recreation, outings, relaxing and good old fun. Activities give residents an enhanced sense of pride, positive self-esteem and self-respect.

The Chapel is a large area where religious and large group activities are held. The room has a large screen where movies, Bingo numbers and etc. are shown. The Chapel is adjacent to the Café, where sandwiches, salads and soups are available.

There is always something to do.

Utilizing the Eden Alternative principals is key to creating a well-being environment for Elders, wherever they live, and those who collaborate with them as care partners.

Our vision is to create a community where it is common to see children, plants, animals, and intergenerational volunteers. Landscaped grounds and gardens with wheelchair-accessible paths will also be open for everyone to appreciate and enjoy.
