Community Information

Thorne Crest: A Rich History with Hometown Values.

Built in 1975, Thorne Crest Senior Living Community in Albert Lea was one of the first Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC) in Minnesota. For the past 40 years Thorne Crest has provided seniors with lifestyle choices from independent and assisted living to skilled care and rehab. With the recent completion of an $11 million redevelopment project, the community now offers a new memory care center, wellness center with pool and locker rooms, bistro and dining room, common areas, new assisted living apartments, parking garage and much more.

Located in Albert Lea in southern Minnesota, our wonderful retirement community boasts clean, safe residential streets, a vibrant downtown and a myriad of shopping and dining options. Long known as The Gateway from the South, Albert Lea is home to about twenty thousand residents and serves as a regional anchor for this part of the state.

The campus lifestyle is designed to offer residents a variety of living and health care options. From our spacious independent apartments with open floor plans and granite countertops, to the home-like atmosphere of our health care center, Thorne Crest is able to meet the needs of today’s seniors.
