The BLC Ada campus includes Benedictine Care Community, a 49 bed skilled nursing facility; Mission Court, an 18 unit assisted living facility; and Benedictine Supportive Services, a 12 hour senior assistance service located in two unique apartment buildings in Ada, MN.

Benedictine Care Community consists of two unique "neighborhoods", Pioneer and Wild Rose, each of which features a large, bright commons area with skylights, fireplaces and three indoor gazebos for small gatherings, card games and conversation.  Connecting the neighborhoods is an indoor street on which you'll find a Beauty/Barber Shop, a Coffee Courtyard, an Activities Center, and access to the  secure outdoor courtyard.

The dining area is spacious and looks out onto the outdoor courtyard.  Diners are treated like guests in a fine restaurant.  Uniformed staff serve selections from an extensive menu or lighter fare from the salad, sandwich & soup bars.  There are also two private dining rooms for family gatherings and celebrations.

Each Resident room is part of an award-winning design which provides comfort and privacy.  There is a large window for each bed overlooking the beautiful BLC Ada Campus.  Far from the institutional look , the rooms and common areas of Benedictine Care Community are carpeted, decorated and warmly furnished to feel like home.  There are private and semi-private accommodations, but even the semi-private rooms offer an unsurpassed level of privacy and personal space.

While at home, Benedictine Care Community residents can take part in numerous social and individual activities including art, music, socials, wellness, youth groups and the frequent entertainment provided by visitors from the surrounding area.

Benedictine Care Community is truely innovative in its approach to providing care.  It is our goal to ensure residents feel like friends and neighbors and they remain a part of, rather than apart from, their families and community.
