HistoryThe Altenheim

In the early 1900s the Goodwill Circle of St. John’s Evangelical Church recognized the need for a home to care for their elders.  The idea was discussed by a group of interested members from St. John’s Church.  This group of members purchased the “Stewart” family home with four surrounding acres and The Altenheim was organized in 1906!

Today, over 100 years later, The Altenheim campus has been through many changes in keeping up with the changing health care needs of seniors.  The Altenheim is bright, modern, updated and well equipped to meet the needs of a variety of residents.  Our priority is to focus on the dignity and well-being of our residents.  We pride ourselves on the individualized care our staff respectfully offers each resident.
