Care Options

With both private and double rooms available, Ebenezer Care Center provides options so all of our residents have choices that reflect each person’s unique needs. Care options include:

Skilled Nursing Care

Skilled nursing care is for those who need daily assistance and ongoing medical attention. We assess each resident’s physical, psychological, nutritional, spiritual, and emotional needs to develop a plan of appropriate care. Residents can choose to have a Fairview affiliated physician and gerontological nurse practitioner provide onsite “house calls” through Fairview Partners and other providers.

Memory Care

Our Memory Care neighborhood meets the special needs of those in early-stage to mid-stage dementia. In this controlled-access area, our specially trained staff members ensure that your loved one receives the special care and attention they need to live life to its fullest. Residents can participate daily in one-on-one or small group activities. Religious services, special meals, and events are also available. Memory Care residents are invited to visit our gated Healing Garden.

Services for Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Ebenezer Care Center offers special services designed to meet our deaf residents’ needs. A full-time American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter is on staff. Additionally, several rooms in the care center are wired for videophones, text telephones (TTY), and personalized assistive communication devices.

Short-Term Rehabilitation

At Ebenezer Care Center, our short-term rehabilitation provides a bridge between a hospital stay and a safer return home. Ebenezer Care Center offers rehabilitative services, including speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy to assist you with regaining your highest level of independence.

Spiritual Health

The Spiritual Health programs at the Ebenezer Minneapolis Campus support residents, family members, and staff in their continuing spiritual growth and well-being. The Minneapolis Campus is home to the rich diversity that reflects the neighborhood in which it is located.

Our professionally trained chaplains serve as members of the Interdisciplinary Team, providing holistic care emphasized by spiritual support, empathic listening, and a non-judgmental presence. Chaplains assess spiritual needs, facilitate crucial conversations, offer a variety of rituals/services, are available for prayer, and support residents/families through life transitions including grief, various losses, and death.

Spiritual care has a positive effect on both health and longevity. Studies have shown that spiritual care can:

  • Slow the progression of cognitive impairment with aging and may be associated with a slower progression of Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Foster increased social participation
  • Lower stress and increase coping capabilities

Our Campus is served by these chaplains:

Lee Casey, Director of Minneapolis Campus Spiritual Health
Carol Wachter, Staff Chaplain
Abdullahi Hurshow, Muslim Chaplain
Patty Beadle, Resident Chaplain
