Person-Centered Care (PCC) is the common thread running throughout all of ERS’s communities. It’s about caring for residents as individuals and respecting their beliefs, values and needs.
Life at St. Paul Village is something special. You feel that sense of warmth and community even before you walk in the door. And once inside, you see it at every turn – the friendly staff and residents, beautiful decor, landscaping and personal touches that make it home.
As an approach to health, wellness looks beyond the biomedical model and integrates six dimensions of wellness. Healthy living becomes an individual responsibility.
Attitude is as important as exercise, and progress must be measured against individual potential rather than a standard medical norm. Instead of asking, “what’s wrong?” the idea is to probe for “what’s right,” and to build a roster of activities around an individual’s passions and talents.
At St. Paul Village , our goal is to help older adults make the right choices to remain healthy and independent. By creating individualized wellness programs for our residents and staff, we have chosen to be the innovative leader in creating an environment that enriches the body, mind and spirit.
The Wellness Team at St. Paul Village incorporates the six dimensions of wellness into our daily lives:

St. Paul Village began as a mission of the St. Paul Lutheran Church in Madisonville, but has always been ecumenical in its ministry. The community serves the spiritual needs of older adults from all denominations as well as those with no affiliation at all. Chaplains strive to enrich the spiritual lives of residents, with a focus on the tradition and faith journey of each individual. We are here for everyone and the St. Paul Lutheran Church is right next store should you choose to get involved there.
Regularly scheduled worship is provided for the community, as are seasonal celebrations and opportunities for faith formation. We seek and support those opportunities within St. Paul Village that honor our core values, inviting and encouraging the ministry of residents’ faith communities in our midst.
