Located near Bloomington, The Village at Mercy Creek is proud to be part of Franciscan Ministries. We’re truly committed to the well-being and happiness of residents, and we understand that it’s our duty to help others Live Joyfully and discover their best lifestyle yet!

Licensed Assisted Living Care & Support

Being a licensed assisted living community ensures that we meet state standards for safety, quality of care, and resident well-being, providing peace of mind for both residents and their families. 
Residents of The Village at Mercy Creek can find everything they need to enjoy life and thrive in a warm, welcoming environment. We offer a variety of engaging activities and programs for individuals to pursue interests and develop new hobbies. Our professional staff and wellness nurses are ready to assist you, and they are dedicated to helping your loved one reach their highest level of physical, mental, and social wellness. 

Respite Care 

It’s essential to recognize that no one knows your loved one as well as you do. You have a deep understanding of their needs and have proven to be an exceptional caregiver. However, it’s crucial to acknowledge when it’s appropriate to seek support. Whether you’re planning a trip out of town or simply in need of a well-deserved break, you may find yourself requiring additional assistance to ensure the well-being of your loved one. Our respite care program offers comprehensive support akin to that provided in assisted living but without a long-term commitment.
