“My son considered several places for me to live. Being social and active is important to me and Auburn offers different activities and events each day. Everyone is friendly and helpful which made me feel comfortable from the first day I moved in. I enjoy living here, Auburn is home.”
   —Marie, resident

“Auburn has given me the opportunity to do things I have never done. I am part of a group putting together sewing kits and helping those in need. Auburn is my home, we laugh and have fun. I never thought I would feel like that again. I’m always busy and my son doesn’t worry about me anymore.”
   —Elizabeth, resident

Our Ageless Endeavors Stories »

Winnie enjoying her Ageless Endeavor at the St Paul Hotel

With the help of her family, the staff at Auburn Homes & Services and the Ageless Endeavors program, Winnie was able to sip afternoon tea at the St. Paul Hotel with four generations of women in the Michel’s family.

“Spending the afternoon with my family at the St. Paul Hotel was pure joy and I am so grateful for the opportunity,” she said. “It was a wonderful happy time and we sang songs together the whole way home.”

Auburn Homes & Services - Celebrating 90 Years

Auburn Homes & Services celebrates 90 years!

Auburn Homes & Services began operations in Victoria, Minnesota, in 1928. In 1982, the need for affordable senior housing was identified and Talheim, a HUD financed and subsidized building for seniors was built in Chaska. In 1988, a 61-bed nursing facility was built adjacent to Talheim, replacing the facility in Victoria, and named Auburn Manor. In 1997 Auburn Courts, a 55 unit assisted living community, was built and opened. In 1998, Moravian Care Ministries expanded its services to include Waconia and the surrounding communities by purchasing Nightingale Nursing Home, a 37-bed nursing home located in downtown Waconia, and renamed it Auburn West. In 2007 ground was broke for Auburn Home to provide skilled nursing care and rehabilitation services in Waconia. Auburn Meadows Assisted Living and Memory care opened its door to the community in December of 2012. Auburn Homes & Services has been serving seniors in the Spirit of Christ’s Love for 90 years.
