Company Description

For over 50 years, Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh has served the needs of elders, provided peace of mind for their loved ones and offered meaningful, purposeful work for its employees. We have been known for our leadership in creating new approaches to care, and we are often first to introduce new options for apartment living, assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitative care, and dementia care.

In recent years, we have moved away from brick and mortar expansion plans. We are focused on our services and on providing our residents opportunities for extraordinary experiences. This fundamental shift has ignited creativity and inspired the launch of programs with an approach centered on our elders. Today, our work is about creating moments of connection and joy.

Our shift in thinking resulted in the need for a name change. We needed a name that captures the spirit of innovation, describes, without defining, life with us and inspires possibilities going forward.

Our search for just the right name led to the creation of a new word. Miravida emerged.' is a Latin root word meaning curiosity and wonder. 'Vi' is Latin for life.

Miravida Living: A way of life emphasizing wonder and curiosity ... a way of living not defined by age or abilities but filled with possibilities and opportunities.

Bringing forward the best of who we have been and moving forward with a commitment to be even better ... we are Miravida Living
