Five skilled-nursing-level Green House homes currently are operating on the campus of St. John’s Lutheran Ministries. A future phase of five additional skilled nursing Green House homes is envisioned to complete a full transition of nursing care services to The Green House model.
Sponsoring Organization History
St. John’s Lutheran Ministries is a community of diverse people sharing God’s healing presence, with a mission to provide living opportunities within nurturing environments of hope, dignity, and love. A social ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, St. John’s was incorporated in 1960 and is owned by 22 ELCA congregations and governed by a 13 person Board of Directors.
Started as the first HUD-financed senior retirement community in Montana, St. John’s has grown to become the largest senior campus in the state, consisting of 109 low-income retirement apartments, 186 skilled nursing beds, an adult day care center, and a rehabilitation center. In partnership with St. Vincent Healthcare, the largest hospital system in Montana, St. John’s also operates the first full service Continuing Care Retirement Community in Montana, consisting of 122 independent living and 59 assisted living apartments. In addition to services for elders, St. John’s also provides on-site childcare through the Center for Generations.
The assisted living Cottages at St. John’s, modeled after The Green House® approach, opened in August 2005.
