Saint Therese Celebrates New Senior Living Community

Monday, September 12th, 2022

A new senior living community in Corcoran, MN celebrated the start of construction last week. Saint Therese of Corcoran will extend Saint Therese’s reach of care, with the opening coinciding with the organization’s 60th anniversary.

Founded in 1964, Saint Therese has long awaited the dream and vision of the Corcoran community coming to life. With a close proximity to the metro area and a unique pastoral setting, the plans are to bring together a new vibrant community in this Southeast District.

The community will enhance the City’s new “urbanist village” by providing opportunities for intergenerational interaction and meaningful connections with the community-at-large. The campus design is centered around a walkable pedestrian aesthetic, including an outdoor plaza and amphitheater, “Main Street” feel, and all-around connectivity for the greater community to visit. This will include ice cream and coffee shops, educational programming, a fitness center, and other activities.

With a targeted opening in April of 2024, the 13-acre campus will include options for independent and assisted living apartments, memory care, rehabilitative, and skilled care. This community will allow residents to age in place and remain near their families.

Among their pride of exceptional care and grounded history in Catholic faith, Saint Therese’s mission is: doing ordinary things with extraordinary love.

“This building will not be ordinary. It will be extraordinary because of the extraordinary love and purposeful planning that has gone into it. We don’t talk about love in business, but I see it in what we do every day and in this project in particular,” said Saint Therese President and CEO Craig A. Abbott.
