Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center
Brush, CO - Assisted Living, Nursing Home, Independent Living, CCRC
Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center has had a remarkable history since we first opened our doors as a tuberculosis sanatorium over a century ago. The legacy of Pastor Jens Madsen, Sister Anna Poulsen and others has given rise to the outstanding faith-based social ministry that we have become. We offer a multilevel care system that includes independent living, assisted living, an Alzheimer's Neighborhood, hospice, rehabilitation, and in-home services.
At Eben Ezer, we rely on our Christian service heritage and our innovation to address the growing needs of the aged and disabled in Northeast Colorado. We are committed to person-directed care because we regard our residents as individuals with distinct needs, interests and preferences. We strive to create an environment that focuses not only on the physical, but also the spiritual and emotional needs of those under our care. This vision has led to movement away from the traditional institutional nursing home to a more homelike atmosphere that we call A Place Called Home. This approach to long-term care encourages companionship, meaningful activity, variety and spontaneity among our residents – critical components of life that lead to a heightened sense of dignity, self-determination and joy. We invite you to explore the important ministry of Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center.
