Overview

The Anchorage Pioneer home sits like a jewel in the crown of this historical community core. The building was constructed in stages beginning with the five story tower in 1977 and completed in 1982.

The Anchorage Pioneer Home provides licensed assisted living care for Alaska resident elders sixty-five years old or older. The home has a capacity for 168 elders and provides care at three different levels including care for persons with Alzheimer's disease or related dementia (ADRD).

The 168 Elders of the Anchorage home include many of the great pioneers of the first half of the 20th century including homesteaders, miners, and bush pilots. The Anchorage home also boasts pioneer fathers and mothers who turned Anchorage from a railroad tent town to Alaska's center of commerce and culture. These pioneering icons range in age from mid-60's to 104.

In 2000 the home became registered as an official Eden Alternative® home. The Eden goal is to create a home environment where elders, caregivers, support staff, family members, friends and volunteers can flourish and grow.
