Eldercare in downtown mpls is about to get stronger. Augustana Care and Elim Care have agreed to join together to combine housing options, skilled health care and community-based services.

Now that the two organizations have joined forces, they can identify more opportunities to partner with other senior care providers and health care organizations to address complex medical issues, provide more services and attract more key leadership talent. Augustana Care and Elim Care expect to develop their plans further in 2018-19. With more than 200 years of combined Christian ministry and service to older adults of all faiths and traditions, Augustana Care’s and Elim Care’s missions are substantially similar.

Augustana Care has communities throughout Minnesota, including one in the heart of downtown mpls. This includes the Augustana Health Care Center of Minneapolis, which provides care driven by a focus on celebrating life. The Augustana Apartments of Minneapolis offer both independent and assisted living. Residents can find numerous amenities at the apartments as well as a store, restaurant and other services.

Elim Care also has facilities throughout Minnesota, with several in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Elim Care also offers housing and health care services, making their partnership with Augustana Care a logical one.

The affiliation will allow the two organizations to connect with more resources to keep up with the expectations of current and future residents, as well as changes in assisted living or health care regulations. Most importantly, dedication to the well-being of residents, patients and clients will remain at the heart of their mission.
