Mim plays cards daily at Luther Acres Healthcare Center, in addition to attending exercise group, bingo, music programs, art class, parties and socials.

What Is Personal Care at Luthercare?

Seniors today are living healthier, more active lives than ever before – and that approach certainly continues when individuals move to personal care at Luthercare.

Each of Luthercare’s three senior living communities offers personal care – a supportive, caring, living experience that provides residents with services and support tailored to meet individual needs.
