Mount Olivet Careview Home

In spite of the stressful times we are all experiencing, our mission and commitment to our seniors has not changed. We provide the highest quality care possible for the people we serve at Mount Olivet Home and Mount Olivet Careview Home! The COVID-19 crisis has led to big challenges, and we need your support more than ever! Keeping our residents connected to family and friends is so important. With group programs cancelled, technology has become the new connector! Our staff is using iPads, computers, and cell phones to keep our residents and families connected, entertained, and learning. Our therapeutic recreation staff is working hard to make Face-Time and cell phone calls for everyone. Unfortunately, we only have a few iPads for our 250 residents. We need more! We are grateful to our entire team of caregivers, from nursing and activities staff, to the housekeepers and maintenance team. They connect with residents on many levels. We would love to offer them an occasional treat—a soda, a donut, a bus ticket or other “thank you”—to show our gratitude for doing their part during this crisis. People have asked how they can help. Many are suffering in our community, so we hope you will take this request in context of our knowing that there are a plethora of needs. .Your prayers make a difference, too. Please contact Jennifer Carlson, Annual Giving Manager, at (612) 821.3154 or with questions or learning more about the ways you can help.  

Thank you!! God bless! Be well!

Mount Olivet Careview Home was founded in 1960, the original Vocational Hospital was torn down in 1965 and replaced by a new three-story skilled care facility serving 150 residents The name itself is significant because the architectural design called for each of the three floors to have a nursing station in the center from which each room could be “viewed.” In November of 2013, a new 16-bed Transitional Care Unit, offering short-term rehabilitation and nursing services, opened to meet the needs of hospital patients who required additional care and therapy services before returning home.

The largest building project in the history of Mount Olivet Careview Home began in July of 2016. The building renovation project had a series of four phases, and was completed in May, 2018. During this three-year project,  residents were moved into the new building while their rooms at Mount Olivet Careview Home were completely renovated and updated with 55 private rooms and 48 semi-private rooms, the Transitional Care Unit was enlarged to 24 beds, a new Rehabilitation Therapy Center was built, and new and enhance dining rooms and lounges enhance living spaces for all residents.
