Lighthouse of Waconia

Located west of Minneapolis in the lovely lakeside community of Waconia, this Lighthouse was the first community developed by the founding family—and the most recent to undergo a multi-million dollar expansion. The possibilities for Living Life on Purpose® are limited only by the imagination in this beautiful community.

Lighthouse of Waconia offers Independent and Assisted Living, Betty’s Harbor Memory Care, Short Term Stay and the unique Vivid Living® community—a mentored program for intentionally resisting memory loss.

The Four Pillars for
“Living Life on Purpose®”

Lighthouse Communities have incorporated programming that supports each pillar for all of our Lighthouse of Waconia residents: Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care.

I was impressed that "putting the resident first" wasn't just a sales pitch, but rather a reality.
