who we are

Building on a Legacy of Care

At Jones-Harrison, we believe everyone is entitled to dignity, self-expression, and fundamental well-being regardless of where you are on your life journey. From the day our doors opened in 1888, we’ve embraced the guiding principles of compassion, inclusivity, and collaboration to transform the community-living experience and enhance the quality of life for older adults.

We’re a nonprofit community with a rich and varied history. Founded by a group of like-minded members of the Woman’s Christian Association, a donation of land from Judge Edwin S. Jones, and a financial bequest from Jane T. Granger Harrison, Jones-Harrison offered a safe haven for the ageing poor, providing an opportunity to start anew through employment and life skills. Today, we continue to be on the forefront of change through innovative programs and services that cultivate the highest quality continuum of care while nourishing the mind, body, and spirit.

Located on the banks of scenic Cedar Lake in the charming Minneapolis neighborhood of Calhoun-Isles, Jones-Harrison offers the comfort and convenience of home in an engaging, community-based environment. From Assisted Living and Memory Care living options to Long-Term Care and a highly rated Transitional Care Unit, we’re committed to promoting the health and wellness of our residents at every stage of life.

We offer a wide variety of amenities and enriching activities for all tastes and preferences including the Wasie Wellness Center, a therapeutic swimming pool, sensory and arthritis rooms, restaurant-style dining, Frank’s Café, weekly happy hours, and more. Our exceptional staff of skilled nursing, rehabilitation, administration, and support professionals works tirelessly to ensure the health, well-being, and independence of our residents. We focus on the needs of the individual and tailor our programs and services to meet their needs now and in the future.
