Going Green Commitments
- We actively recycle every single kind of material we can, collecting paper, cardboard, tin, glass, copper wiring, plastic, and then donate the proceeds from our bottle and can redemption to local non-profit organizations! It's a win-win-win! We also get some of the energy used at Vennehjem from the Solar field located adjacent to the facility.

Located on 40 acres of rural paradise, just a stone’s throw from the walking and biking trails that weave throughout Decorah and the surrounding areas, Vennehjem is a sanctuary for active seniors who value their freedom. Here you find comfort, convenience and community— friends and neighbors right down the hall to encourage you to live your dreams.
Built as a subsidiary of Aase Haugen Senior Services, part of a CCRC—a continuum of senior life— Vennehjem’s purpose is to provide a convenient community that allows its members to thoroughly enjoy their retirement years, free of all the headaches of maintaining a house and yard.
Live your life on your own terms with the Christian elder care services from our nursing home in Iowa. At Aase Haugen Senior Services in Decorah, IA, we provide compassionate care for each of our guests.
Aase Haugen Homes opened its doors in 1915, thanks in part to a wonderful donation of 240 acres of farm ground and a vision of something better from Aase Haugen. She had been caretaker for her whole family, never marrying nor having children of her own. She was left alone at the end of her life—something she wanted to prevent for others.
