About Spurgeon Senior Community

Compassionate and Loving Care Since 1971

Throughout the years, the ten-person volunteer Board of Directors and our leadership have listened to the needs of this community, prayed for discernment – and with the support of the community – have created the organization we are blessed with today.

The original Spurgeon Manor was built with 20 residential care units and 17 nursing beds. Today, Spurgeon Senior Community consists of a wide variety of care levels: 55 skilled and long-term care beds including 16 licensed for chronic dementia illness, an outpatient therapy department, 40 apartments of Assisted Living, including 16 secured studio apartments certified for memory care, 19 independent townhomes and 6 independent apartments. This spring, have just completed the first of 8 new townhomes!

From the planning that took place back in 1965 to the capital and annual campaigns of today, the support of the community has allowed for the special amenities we are so blessed to provide. In 2014, we added a nursing wing that allowed for all residents to have private rooms and in 2019 we opened our beautiful assisted living facility. Since then, we have added a 20-passenger bus, wheelchair-accessible vans, iN2L computers, blanket warmers, outdoor exercise equipment, a new communication system and so much more. Also, the priceless donations of time and talent are beyond measure!
Spurgeon is one of the most remarkable examples of what a community can do when it pulls together with a common goal in mind.
