SAINT PETER, MN - Ecumen is expanding senior housing options in St. Peter, Minnesota with development of assisted living and memory care housing called Ecumen Prairie Hill. This new Ecumen senior housing community will feature 63 assisted living and memory care apartments in 2-bedroom, 1-bedroom and studio floor plans. Framing was recently completed for Ecumen Prairie Hill, which is slated to open in summer of 2011
This is Ecumen's second senior housing community in Saint Peter, Minnesota, with the other being The Wilds of Sand Prairie. The two sites are located within three blocks of each other. Ecumen also operates home care, assisted living, memory care and rehabilitation services in Mankato, Minnesota at Pathstone Living.
Ecumen Prairie Hill will provide optimal independence and supportive services. It also will be conveniently located near Gustavus Adolphus College, River's Edge Hospital and Clinic, and be a short drive from downtown Saint Peter. Like other Ecumen senior housing communities, Ecumen Prairie Hill will feature the newest technology, including GE Home sensors that can proactively help identify emerging health issues and Dakim (m)Power brain fitness technology. Ecumen also provides local transportation services for its St. Peter senior housing communities.
"Saint Peter is a wonderful community to grow up and grow old," said Tom Opatz, Ecumen director of real estate development. "Ecumen Prairie Hill will empower many more seniors to continue living in Saint Peter and to contributing to the vibrancy of the community."
