Welcome to St. Luke Lutheran Community - Portage Lakes!

My name is Karen Hrdlicka. I am the Administrator of St. Luke Lutheran Community - Portage Lakes. I have been with St. Luke Lutheran Community in several different capacities on and off for more than 20 years.
I encourage you to experience the St. Luke difference. The recent addition of assisted living here has taken the comfort and beauty of our campus to an even higher level with more indoor views of the lake! In the summertime, the sensory garden is a big hit as we watch the flowers bloom in the spring, plant vegetables in the early summer, and harvest in the fall while watching all types of birds play in our fountain. We also added a brightly colored therapy room which makes the rehab exercises seem less difficult. The chapel/activity center is used for all kinds of activities and has a beautiful view of the lake where the residents enjoy watching sailboats on Sunday mornings while having coffee and doughnuts.
Our rooms are larger than most. We encourage residents to decorate and make them their own. It's always interesting to talk to our residents and see their family pictures and interesting knick-knacks.
Food is a big part of our culture; we all love food! The residents, their families and our staff all enjoy the same cuisine prepared by our wonderful kitchen staff. Breakfast is cooked to order as you rise. No early morning wake up call unless you want it. At lunch and supper you can choose from a variety of places to eat including our dining room, your room or our solarium overlooking the lake (during nice weather you can even eat outside).
We have great nursing staff. Our Resident Life staff provide all kinds of entertainment and are more than happy to help you fish from the dock. And we meet all the regulatory requirements. However, we hope you come and find out for yourself that our house is truly a home.
