Ecumen Detroit Lakes

Making life better.

Ecumen Detroit Lake-Formerly Emmanuel Community – has earned an outstanding reputation for long-term care in the Detroit Lakes area. Our on-campus nursing home has served the Lakes area for more than a half century. Nestled in a residential neighborhood, our community of care includes housing options and services to meet changing needs.

At Ecumen, we envision a world in which aging is viewed in radically different ways. Residents thrive in the shared warmth of a community that’s “changing aging” with innovative approaches to care. We provide a wide range of healing therapies and amenities to help you or a loved one enjoy life with more confidence and security.

Our Volunteers help with a range of activities from helping with administrative duties, visiting residents and leading a small group.
