Changing Aging

We want to welcome you to Country Neighbors. We create "Home" and a vibrant "community within a community" for seniors in Lake Crystal, Le Center, Mapleton and New Richland.

We have taken a unique approach to senior housing. Rather than serving several hundred people in one residential community, we focus on serving a small group of people extremely well in a place that they love to call "home." Country Neighbors provides suite residences for up to 22 people in an easy-access one-level home located in residential neighborhoods in Lake Crystal, Le Center, Mapleton and New Richland.

The Country Neighbors communities are part of Ecumen, which is Minnesota's largest non-profit senior housing and services organization.

Ecumen Lifestyle Covenant

Each person who lives in an Ecumen community has different interests and passions. Empowering each person’s individual being is essential to honoring those we serve. The Ecumen Lifestyle Covenant is a partnership between our staff and the people we serve.

A new technology we introduced in April of 2012 is Ecumen Connects, a private site for our residents' families to connect with their loved ones and our community events. Learning basic computer skills are proven to help seniors sharpen their memory, build confidence, and promote overall cognitive fitness. Thatís why Country Neighbors, LeCenter offers our FREE Ecumen Connects program where residents, families & friends, clients, and staff can stay connected through the internet.
