The History of Life Enriching Communities

Life Enriching Communities has a rich and storied history dating back to 1899. That year, after recognizing a need to create a community for retired ministers and laity, the Rev. Dr. Henry C. Weakley, a Methodist minister, coordinated the efforts of five Methodist Conferences to establish The Methodist Home for the Aged. President William McKinley was one of the original trustees of The Methodist Home for the Aged. He’s believed to be the only sitting President of the United States to be a member of the board of any retirement home.

Following a fire to the original structure in Yellow Springs in 1902, The Methodist Home for the Aged accepted the offer of Mr. & Mrs. Obed J Wilson to build a new home on twenty acres of land in the College Hill neighborhood in Cincinnati. Six years later, 40 residents moved into what is now known as Twin Towers. 

Over the years, Twin Towers has grown into a sprawling 120-acre campus featuring independent living apartments and patio homes, assisted living, rehabilitative therapy services, and skilled nursing care and is home to more than 600 residents.

With a century of success at Twin Towers, and the ever-growing number of active adults in the Cincinnati area, the Board of Trustees decided to expand. 

In 2002, construction began on a second retirement community, Twin Lakes, located in Montgomery, Ohio. The 65-acre campus includes villa homes, apartments, assisted living, rehabilitation therapy services and skilled nursing care services for nearly 400 residents.

Today, Life Enriching Communities is one of the leading providers of quality, innovative senior services in the tri-state area.
