Since our inception in 1958, Highland Manor has been evolving. So much so, that it evolved into Oak Hills Living Center in 1995. Recently, thanks to the library of Elroy Ubl and years of scrapbooks by Eileen Jacobson we saw first hand just how consistently we’ve held to evolving to serve those in our community. While the way to support Oak Hills has changed, the reason to support services here in New Ulm has not. The landscape of nursing homes and long term care continues to change and only 23% of nursing homes in the U.S. continue to be run by non-profit organizations. We invite you to learn more about our campaign, Growing Our Tomorrow, on You Tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1zdH7agjpI. This 20 minute recording outlines the need and our long range plan of evolving into a life plan community. Why? The table below shows the trends in non-profit long term care communities in the United States. As non-profit operated nursing homes continue to shrink our future exists in offering the full continuum of care.
Did you know that the $6.4 million cost to build Oak Hills Living Center in 1994 now equals $12,238,222 in 2022 according to the inflation calculator at www.saving.org.
Raised to Date: $673,030
Campaigning for Highland Manor – 46 Years Ago
While the semantics have certainly changed over the past 46 years, the case for support remains the same. When our friends and neighbors can no longer care for themselves, we must continue to provide care in our community. Donate today at www.oakhillsnewulm.com or call 507-233-0851.

Family trips to Austin, MN to visit cousins, were a favorite for Elaine F. as a child. She also fondly recalls playing in her neighborhood. Elaine worked as a school secretary and strongly recommends chocolate desserts. Her favorite activity at Oak Hills is bingo and she has a special place in her heart for staff members Paige and Mandi. When asked if she has advice for the younger generation she recommends a treat or snack every night because it is a good way to end the day!
