Luther Park Community grew out of an affiliation with the Lutheran church more than 100 years ago, and Christian compassion remains an integral part of who we are today. We have an ongoing relationship with many Lutheran congregations in central Iowa whose members participate in the Luther Park Auxiliary, support fundraising initiatives, and assist in selecting our Board of Directors. We employ a full-time chaplain to meet the spiritual needs of our residents, families, and employees. Although Luther Park is affiliated with Lutheran churches, individuals of all denominations currently live here and are always welcome.
Benefits of non-profit senior living
Luther Park Community is a nonprofit senior living community governed by a volunteer board of directors who live here. Board members volunteer their time and talents to represent the interests of the community. We focus on providing high-quality service, including continual upkeep and improvements of our buildings and grounds for the enjoyment of generations to come. As an independent organization, we can be flexible and innovative in serving residents of our community rather than answering to a corporate office.
Continuum of care
When planning for the future, it is important for individuals and couples to anticipate how their changing healthcare needs may affect their living arrangements well into the future. By offering independent and assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing, and long-term nursing care, Luther Park Community can meet those changing needs. Couples have the opportunity to reside together, or if individually they need different levels of care, they can continue to enjoy the comfort and benefits of living within the same community.
Specialty in dementia care
In the 1990’s, Luther Park leadership recognized a growing need for Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Consistently high occupancy rates are a reflection of the high demand for this specialized care. Ongoing education is crucial for staff members providing assistance to those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and Luther Park employees participate in a minimum of eight hours of training annually.
