Ridgeway Joins the Vista Prairie Communities Family


Ridgeway Joins the Vista Prairie Communities Family

As of October 1, 2023, Ridgeway on 23rd and Ridgeway on German has become a part of Vista Prairie Communities, a mission-driven nonprofit senior care provider. Vista Prairie Communities, based in Champlin, MN, currently owns and operates seven senior care communities in Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. The organization also owns a senior care community in Ohio.

The ownership change will expand the level of care that is currently offered in assisted living settings in New Ulm, Minnesota. The changeover will also offer opportunities for enhanced training, growth, and support for staff members of both Ridgeway communities.

The key benefit of the acquisition enables the Ridgeway locations to provide enhanced levels of care for older adults who need more assistance in daily life activities but who also want to stay in a comfortable homelike setting, not requiring a move to a skilled nursing facility. 

As a mission-driven, nonprofit, we are dedicated to serving seniors who entrust us with their lives, health, and well-being. The team members at Vista Prairie Communities make it possible for you or your loved ones to imagine a worry less lifestyle, including 24/7 care, a warm and friendly community environment with plenty of social opportunities for companionship. Our compassionate caregivers and joy-filled environments help residents feel comfortable, making it easier for them to make new friends, feel a sense of belonging, and find their purpose.

At Vista Prairie Communities, we offer personalized care plans, maintenance-free living, independence, and supportive services that include Independence Plus, Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Care Suites. Our signature Aspire™ Life on Purpose lifestyle model and innovative technologies are just a couple of the things that set us apart from other senior care communities.

We look forward to creating collaborative partnerships to organizations in and around New Ulm, getting to know the people of New Ulm, including our new residents and teams, celebrating the culture of historic New Ulm, and serving the aging population of New Ulm with great care and understanding.

Welcome to the Good Life
