Ecumen Pathstone Latitude Welcomes First New Residents

Ecumen Pathstone


MANKATO, Minn., Feb. 17, 2021 -- Ecumen Pathstone’s new Independent Living offering, Latitude, is now complete and welcoming its first residents to their new homes overlooking the Minnesota River bluffs. In addition to Latitude, Pathstone’s newly designed Memory Care community, Landing, also is open and serving residents. 

“This really is a dream come true for many of us at Pathstone,” said Jennifer Pfeffer, senior director of operations for Ecumen, who has worked with Ecumen for more than 20 years. “We have been a part of this community for more than 80 years and we know there’s a need for more options for seniors who live an active lifestyle and also want accessibility to a full range of care. We’re honored to be the only senior living community in the Mankato area with that full continuum of care, and we’re so happy that we can provide that option.”


Latitude’s bright and welcoming Scandinavian-influenced architecture and furnishings are some of its most striking features. Spacious, sunny apartments feature granite countertops and stainless appliances. The club room -- Club 44 -- includes a fireplace as well as pool and poker tables. Telescope Terrace overlooks the beautiful Minnesota River valley and bluffs. The Parallel fitness room, Cardinal Point learning center and Compass Corner activity room are among the many shared spaces for safe community and private gatherings. Ecumen Pathstone is near downtown, Sibley Park and many trails.


Tours of Latitude and Landing are by appointment only, and can be made by calling (507) 381-3255 or visiting ecumenpathstone.org/latitude.


With the addition of Independent Living, the Pathstone community offers comprehensive care services, including Rehabilitation/Transitional Care, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Adult Day, Care Center, Home Care and The Ecumen Store. Ecumen, one of the nation's top nonprofit providers of housing and services for older adults, was founded in 1862 as a Lutheran social service agency and began serving the greater Mankato area in 1937 as the Mankato Lutheran Home. Pathstone has been named Best Senior Living Community for six years in a row by readers of Mankato Magazine’s “Best of Mankato” survey.


Named one of six senior living providers to watch in 2020 by Senior Housing News and recipient of NRC Health Customer Approved Award, Ecumen's mission is to continue serving more people in meaningful, innovative ways.  Ecumen develops living spaces, home and community based services and work spaces  that reflect its commitment to exceptional care, advocacy for those it serves and employs, equality and inclusivity.  Based in Shoreview, Minn., Ecumen operates nearly 100 properties and services in multiple states. Additionally, the company provides consulting services in management, marketing and development. For more information, visit us on Facebook or at www.ecumen.org
