Enriching Lives at the Lutheran Living Communities

In 1945, a group of pastors and lay leaders of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod met to establish a Home in Williamsburg. With the endorsement of the two Iowa Districts of the church, The Lutheran Home for the Aged Association-East received its charter as a non-profit organization. A site was located in 1946, and while thirteen of the 50 acres was a gift to the Association, construction costs and other factors made the project unfeasible. In 1951, a hospital building in Vinton became available.

The first resident arrived at the Lutheran Living Communities-Vinton Campus (formerly known as the Vinton Lutheran Home)  in 1952. The Home had occupancy of forty residents. The residents on the first floor were active, receiving minor help with tasks such as dressing or bathing. Also, if able, the residents assisted in gardening, food service, light housekeeping and laundry, which helped keep the expenses down.


Lutheran Living Communities for the Aged Association

“Our Mission and Philosophy of Christian Service is based upon the teachings and actions of our Lord, Jesus Christ, whose unconditional love for His creation and concern for all humanity is a model for all to follow.”

The Lutheran Living Communities is committed to providing essential services to our residents to satisfy their special housing needs and to provide quality programs designed to promote their physical, mental, social and spiritual health. We believe, consistent with our Lord’s teachings, that each person is entitled to be treated with dignity, courtesy, understanding and love. It is our continuing mission to treat and provide care to our residents consistent with His teachings.

It is He who said, “I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you did for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant the seemed, you did for me.”
Matthew 25:40

Residents, Tenant & Family Testimonials

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
Matthew 25:40

I love it here! The layout of my town home is awesome! It’s plenty big for me and there’s room for my kids to come and stay. I also love the location. The grounds are beautiful and quiet. I can’t see living anywhere else. The only way I’d leave is if I had to go to the Lutheran Living Communities  Assisted Living or the Nursing Home. I just couldn’t ask for too much more!
