We are a non-profit licensed Boarding Care facility for seniors that bridges the gap between assisted living and skilled nursing care

Aftenro’s mission is a commitment to enhancing the quality of life and independence of its residents in a homelike atmosphere through professional nursing and supportive services.


Welcome to our Aftenro website! It’s summer time in Minnesota so we will be doing some maintenance and construction on our website. If for some reason you’re unable to find what you’re looking for, you can try our Facebook page, Aftenro Duluth, or contact us directly with any inquiries. Thank you for your patience.
