Helping Seniors Live Fully Since 1904

Ecumen Parmly LifePointes has been more than a century in the making.  Our first “Old People’s Home” was founded by Swedish immigrants and built through the generosity of Chisago City Lutheran Churches and the Chisago City community, creating a bond that continues today.  Thanks to charitable benefactors, visionary leadership, dedicated employees and selfless volunteers, we continue to grow and change with the times. 


Spiritual Care

All of Parmly’s services are based on a foundation of Christian warmth and compassion.  Parmly provides ecumenical pastoral care and a campus chapel for clients and the community.  Our full-time chaplain works cooperatively with local religious leaders to provide spiritual support in times of life transition, health crisis, and bereavement.  Each person is honored and respected according to their religious traditions and values.  Click here to read more about Parmly's spiritual care and services.



Ecumen Parmly LifePointes and the people it touches have been blessed by gifts since our inception in 1904. At that time ten area Lutheran Churches purchased the original farm to provide a home for 24 residents. Today we serve over 500 seniors daily through housing and services at Parmly LifePointes.

Gifts from friends, families, neighbors and area businesses will continue to impact and enhance the services and amenities provided. Thank you for support and commitment to Parmly’s Mission of “Service to Seniors.”

LEAVE A LEGACY -- Heritage Circle
Ecumen Parmly LifePointes' Heritage Circle recognizes and honors planned gifts from "Legacy" donors during their lifetime.  By making a planned or estate gift, you leave a wonderful legacy that will forever positively impact the quality of care for the seniors we serve.

Donors may designate how they would like their gifts used.  Often, gifts are designated to Parmly's Centennial Endowment Fund (see below). Donors also choose the method of sharing their gifts, including: cash or securities; beneficiary designations in your will, IRA, 401(k), 403(b), financial asset account, or life insurance policy; or an income producing gift such as a Charitable Gift Annuity.  

The endowment fund was envisioned during Parmly’s centennial year in 2004 honoring their 100-year commitment and dedication to the seniors in the Chisago Lakes area.  The Parmly Community Council established the fund to ensure that the differences in four distinct areas that set them apart from other senior service providers are preserved for generations to come: Spirituality, Gardens & Grounds, Community Service, and Staff Development.  

The $1 million is just the beginning as donations are always welcome to continue increasing the amount in the endowment fund. Donations can be in the form of cash, securities (stocks, bond, annuities, etc), real and personal property, insurance policies, an estate/will or trust. Any one can contribute including businesses or individuals.

For information about gifting, please call 651-257-0575.
