We are delighted with your interest in Luther Village. Planned as a residential community for active people 55 years of age and older, Luther Village was designed to allow individuals to live graciously with maximum independence along with available services throughout their retirement years. Luther Village was established in residential Arlington Heights in 1990 by the Shaw Company. It has the distinction of being the first full-equity ownership retirement community in the Midwest. Residents of Luther Village own shares in The Luther Village Owners Corporation and enjoy the financial advantages that go along with owning shares in a co-op. Another benefit to residents of Luther Village is the comfort and convenience of having a highly respected and well recognized health care provider on the same campus, The Lutheran Home. Residents of Luther Village have first priority access to The Lutheran Home for re-hab and their health care needs.
