Now Open to Your Interpretation of Living

There really is nothing like the Pathstone community in the greater Mankato area, where we’ve been serving since 1937 from an idyllic location near downtown’s cultural center.

You’ll find our all-new, 56-unit Independent Living community adjacent to the majestic Minnesota River bluffs. You’re steps from the dog-friendly Minnesota River Trail, connecting you to 10.7 paved miles that hug the river and parks through downtown before meeting up with other trails. Explore a new place to call home at Pathstone Latitude today. 

Trusted to serve individuals and their families for over 160 years, Ecumen designs, develops and delivers award-winning personalized continuum of care. And with the addition of Independent Living, our Pathstone community offers comprehensive care services, including Rehabilitation/Transitional Care, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Adult Day, Care Center, Home Care, and the Ecumen Store.
