Since February of 1999, the Lakeview Ranch has undertaken the challenge of developing an alternative high quality specialized model of dementia care that focuses not only on meeting the emotional and spiritual needs of persons with dementia but their physical needs as well. We’ve come a long way in 16+ years, today the Lakeview Ranch is managed by Vacker Place, a non-profit based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We operate two facilities just an hour west of the Twin Cities, in both Darwin and Dassel.
