Love Your New Home
“I feel so relaxed and peaceful and knew we made the right choice in moving here. I feel it is home.”
-The Pillars of Mankato Resident
“My mom’s decision to move to The Pillars has turned out to be even better than any of us expected. I am so happy she is in such a beautiful and caring place. The staff has made her feel so welcome. I rest comfortably knowing that she is happy in her apartment and sociably involved with others in the community.”

As part of Oppidan and Ebenezer, The Pillars of Mankato offers the Dimensions® Program, which helps us to provide tailored care to meet each resident’s specific needs. Our Dimensions Memory Care neighborhood offers the highest levels of care in our community with staff on-site 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Meals are served family-style and innovative art and music activities are designed to ease residents’ anxiety while promoting brain health. Each resident lives in a private apartment with their own private bath. Our Dimensions neighborhood has controlled access and features specialized areas (kitchen, family room, music, enclosed outdoor garden, etc.) to trigger memories and engage residents in activities.
