Mendota Lutheran Home is closing.
The announcement was made Tuesday in a press release on their Facebook page.
The message read…
“It is with heavy hearts the Administration, Staff and Board of Mendota Lutheran Home announce the closing of the facility. Our dedicated staff have faced: community rumors, an aging facility, dwindling census, rising costs, and low reimbursement rates. In these changing times, stand alone, non-for-profit homes face difficulty remaining a viable choice”.
“While change is always difficult, we are especially saddened by these circumstances. A reasonable transition period is expected. The Mendota Lutheran Home sincerely thank the families and community for 67 wonderful years.”
The announcement did not indicate a closing date.
