  • When Mom moved to St. John’s Lutheran Home, she had just lost her husband and was overcome with grief. St. John’s immediately took her into a warm embrace. From Mom’s first day forward, the staff has been wonderfully supportive and attentive to the individual interests and needs of all of their residents.
