Our focus is on crafting moments of connection, joy, and delight – all of which enrich the lives of our elders. Come and experience the unique atmosphere at Miravida, where we’ve been creating these cherished moments since 1963.


Miravida Living, founded in 1963 by local church leaders in Oshkosh, is a senior living community deeply rooted in history. While it has evolved, the core value of sharing God’s love with elders remains steadfast. In recent years, we’ve transitioned away from physical expansion plans, prioritizing exceptional services and extraordinary experiences for our residents. This shift fuels our creativity and inspires elder-centered programs. Today, our focus is on creating meaningful moments of connection and joy for those we serve.


Every step marked by wonder, inquiry, learning, fostering unique relationships, sparking creativity, and deep trust. It’s a generative process, shifting awareness, changing perceptions, and shaping the future.

We’ve fundamentally changed our approach, redefining excellence, prioritizing creativity, big ideas, innovation, and action. Our momentum is fueled by the belief in better ways to serve our elders’ preferences, making life at Miravida Living a source of inspiration for future possibilities.
