Now offering virtual tours. Call us now to schedule.

Our assisted living community in West St. Paul, Minn., offers an engaging social life that will pull you away from the TV and into creative projects, happy hour socials, card and board games, lively meals, fitness classes, fun outings and anything else that you want to do. And there’s always the security of knowing that our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to be alerted to an emergency.

Perhaps at this time in your life, you want to get back to some of the things you’ve always loved — and try some things you haven’t done. Want to finally get that fitness program fired up? We have classes for that. Do you want to learn how to get the most out of your smartphone or iPad? We can help. We also have a full activity calendar that changes daily, so there’s always something to do, such as ice cream socials, movie nights and sing-alongs. 

We know that moving into a new apartment isn’t easy; that’s why we’re here to help. You can choose either a private or companion suite — whichever best suits your needs — that comes with a private bath and large windows that fill your apartment with natural light. You’ll also fill it with your favorite furniture, photos and cherished keepsakes so your home unmistakably reflects your style.

Step outside your apartment and you’ll see the same home-like warmth and comfort. Everything is on one floor, so it’s easy to navigate. The fireside living room and other common areas are warm and inviting to settle in with a good book or visit with friends and neighbors. Chef-prepared meals are served restaurant-style so you can order what you want from the menu and enjoy conversation with the company at your table. Outside, you’ll find a lovely courtyard with comfortable seating and landscaping.  

Some of our amenities include:
•24-hour security system
•Beauty/barber shop
•Walking paths
•Computer/internet access
•Parking 
•Piano
•Porch
•Housekeeping and laundry services?

Our assisted living lifestyle provides all the independence you want and a helping hand when you need it. We can get you started, perhaps in bathing, dressing or managing medications. Then we step out of the way of your daily living.

  • Could be better

    It is a small community which is an advantage.The other residents are delightful. It was recently updated. Hands on staff is good. Administration does not take responsibility for problems. We had issues getting things on a schedule when we moved in. We still do not have a care plan. Communication is poor. They have not had a steady activity director since she moved in. They give out a calendar but the activities don’t happen. Housekeeping is poor. Has potential to be a nice place but you really have to stay on top of things all the time. Administration has been better since the virus.

  • Brookdale memory care

    The only reason I give two stars is for the overworked direct care staff. They try very hard but are not given time to devote enough time to direct care. Imagine trying to watch 20 two year olds which is memory care and do cooking, cleaning, dishes and clean residents rooms. No wonder they can’t take care of people who need extra attention. They call family for help all the while they ask for more money for their care. Management is not communicative and the nursing staff is not friendly and don’t take time to even do body checks. My mother-in-law passed away in January,2019. I am glad we had hospice because I think her medical needs from the nursing staff would have been non existent. Never saw the nurse that whole week before my mother-in-law’s passing. Never checked how we were dealing with this and to this day have never offered any compassionate care.

  • Short term stay is great

    My dad is here and this is for a short term stay so it is a good fit. The people here are super nice and attentive. There are only 13 people here and they don't have an activity director so the daily activities are limited. They have home cooked meals and they all sit at the table. They will clean my dads room 2x a week. They have a nice patio area. We may be transferring to a Brookdale in California which is great. I would recommend this community.
