Rosenort Home for the Aged (Rosthern, Saskatchewan, Canada)
Rosenort Home for the Aged, at Rosthern, Saskatchewan, was established in 1944, when Isaac P. Friesen gave his house in Rosthern for this purpose. The Rosenort congregation (General Conference Mennonite Church) owned another house in Rosthern for the same purpose, in which the boys of the Rosthern Bible Academy lived for a few winters while the Academy girls lived in the Friesen house. In 1945 the house was dedicated as a home for the aged, and was gradually filled with aged persons who could help themselves. The others were taken into the Invalid Home on the Youth Farm. In 1953 an addition was built to the Rosenort Home, making accommodations for 16 persons.
