A history of serving our community

Our Vision: We believe in maximizing the quality of life for those we serve.

Our Mission: To enrich lives through a continuum of quality services guided by Christian love and compassion.


Luther Manor Communities is a faith based not for profit organization providing a full continuum of care for seniors in the greater Dubuque area.

We were originally founded in 1949 by five Dubuque Lutheran Churches as a joint project. Our first senior care community was established at 340 Wartburg Place.

Since then we have grown into two campuses.

Grand Meadows

Our Grand Meadows Campus in Asbury, IA, opened in June of 2017. Grand Meadows offers Independent Maintenance Free Townhomes for individuals 55+, along with Assisted Living, Long-term Care, Skilled Care, and Memory Care.


Our legacy campus on 3131 Hillcrest Road in Dubuque, IA, was our first long-term care, skilled care, and memory care community. We opened Hillcrest in 1969 with 103 dually certified beds for Medicare and Medicaid. We also have an additional 16 beds that are included in a Secure Memory Care Unit.
