About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a continuum of care that embraces changing needs of the community.


Welcome to United Living Community, where we provide a continuum of care that caters to many of your health and wellness needs.  Your health, safety, faith, and well-being are important to us as well as staying engaged in activities you enjoy and staying connected to your loved ones and the community.  We consider residents and their family part of our team and strive to make everyone feel welcomed and involved.

Our Vision

The future of United Living Community is bright. We adapt to meet the ever-changing needs of our residents and employees. Demonstrating positive attitudes and attentive care distinguishes United Living Community as a facility that goes above and beyond. We encourage employee development as our workers are instrumental in an organized and highly-skill environment. Creating a balance between the employee’s needs and goals is important. We continue to be a dynamic part of the Brookings community, as this partnership shows the power of what communities working together can offer.
