History of The Lutheran Home at Kane

The Lutheran Home at Kane has a rich history of providing services to its region for more than 50 years.  The Synod decided a nursing home be established in Kane so in 1961, The Kane Mansion on Edgar Street was purchased to be re-purposed as a nursing home.  After much hard work and dedication from the community, ground breaking ceremonies were held in 1966.  


It didn’t take long for the Board of Directors to realize they needed more space to ensure they could provide care for the community.  In 1979, construction began on Clay Street for a new $2 million dollar, 90 bed skilled nursing facility.  Upon completion, it only took three months to reach 99% occupancy validating the true need of the facility.


The Lutheran Home has been a pillar in the community providing for the various stages of the aging process.  As a CCRC (Continuum of Care Retirement Community), the Lutheran Home offers 6 cottages for independent living, a 33 bed personal care home, and a 90 bed nursing facility. 


Whether you need short-term care or long-term stays, the Lutheran Home can provide for your needs.  For more information, please contact our Social Services Department at 814-837-6706.
