“Let your joy be in your journey.” — Tim Cook
Miravida Living has a long history of being an integral part of the Oshkosh community. It was established more than 50 years ago, but a lot has changed since our doors first opened. It has been a beautiful journey to get to where we are today.
Is Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh still open?
Leaders of area churches guided the foundation of Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh in 1963. Their mission was to create a facility that would share God’s love, respond to the changing needs of the community and reach out to people in need. Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh is still open today operating under our new name, Miravida Living. The transformation from Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh to Miravida Living took place in 2017 and was inspired by our desire to have a strong cohesive identity in the community. We wanted community members to think of our organization as a whole, not just as the individual facilities.
Miravida Living is a place where people go to continue living, learning and honing their creativity and wisdom. A place where elders are embraced by all. A place where elders are shown only kindness and compassion.
What does Miravida Living mean?
We’re focused on our services and providing our residents opportunities for extraordinary experiences. Our work is about creating moments of connection and joy, which plays into our new name. “Mir” is a Latin root word meaning curiosity and wonder. “Vi” is Latin for life. Simply put, Miravida Living is a way of life emphasizing wonder and curiosity. It’s a way of living not defined by age or abilities, but filled with possibilities and opportunities.
Innovative Elder Care in Oshkosh
We’re proud of where we have come from and where we are going. We will continue to serve by meeting the needs of elders, providing peace of mind for their loved ones and offering meaningful, purposeful work for our team members. We will continue to be known for our leadership in creating new approaches to care by being the first to introduce new options for apartment living, assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitative care, and dementia care. We sincerely thank the Oshkosh community for supporting us through our journey. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!
