“My son considered several places for me to live. Being social and active is important to me and Auburn offers different activities and events each day. Everyone is friendly and helpful which made me feel comfortable from the first day I moved in. I enjoy living here, Auburn is home.”
   —Marie, resident

“Auburn has given me the opportunity to do things I have never done. I am part of a group putting together sewing kits and helping those in need. Auburn is my home, we laugh and have fun. I never thought I would feel like that again. I’m always busy and my son doesn’t worry about me anymore.”
   —Elizabeth, resident

Are you a sewer and looking for a way to donate to AHS?

sewing face masks

Dear family and friends of Auburn Homes & Services,
We are so grateful for the donations we have received for our beloved residents at both our Chaska and Waconia locations. The support we have received from our communities has been wonderful and along with our residents, we are grateful for these acts of kindness.

We continue to graciously welcome donations of hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes, but we’ve also found that many are asking if we will accept hand sewn masks and do we have directions for them…well, the answer is yes and yes! For all the sewers out there that would like to donate hand sewn masks, here are some links with instructions and the best material to use.

Please drop off all donations at the front door of Auburn Homes & Services in Chaska and at The Meadows in Waconia. Again, we cannot thank our communities enough for the support and love we have received during these unprecedented times.

*Please note that all donated hand sewn masks will not be used in place of PPE and will be only used in conjunction with CDC guidelines.

Here is a link on how to make a face mask:

Our Ageless Endeavors Stories »

Mary Steffen and son Kurt at Lola's Lakehouse

Auburn Homes & Services Ageless Endeavors program continues to make wishes come true for residents. With the Ageless Endeavors program, Mary Steffen was able to enjoy time with her son from Texas.

Steffen talks to her son, Kurt, on the phone every day. Kurt lives in Texas and is not able to make the trip to Minnesota very often. Health constraints make it difficult for Mary to travel long distances or be away from her home at Auburn for an extended amount of time.

Ageless Endeavors created the opportunity for Mary and Kurt to enjoy a special lunch at Lola’s Lake House in Waconia. Mary was dressed in her best and Kurt surprised her with fresh flowers and Nut Goodies, her favorite candy. Auburn provided transportation and chauffeured Mary and Kurt to Lola’s for a mother and son lunch together. Mary could not stop smiling.
