THE VILLAGE AT ORCHARD RIDGE
Ninety-eight years ago a group of Lutheran farmers decided to buy the old Swedish College and provide a home for the elderly and young children. The Village at Orchard Ridge (formerly Coeur d’Alene Homes & Heritage Place) was opened in 1921 and has a decades-old commitment to provide a nurturing community to older adults. Sponsored by 23 area churches, our compassionate Christian care embodies love, dignity, respect, and support for you and your loved one. As the only nonprofit assisted living & memory care community in the Coeur d'Alene area, we are uniquely equipped to care for the physical, mental, social and spiritual needs of our residents.
