Grateful & Can't Say Enough Good!
We are grateful that our 96-yr-old mother is at Carefree. Everyone who works there has demonstrated kindness & thoughtfulness. We can trust that even through this challenging time of uncertainty, mom is being cared for comprehensively & compassionately.

I currently do not live in the same state but when I did visit the community everything was great! The staff was very friendly, community seems very clean. My mother lives in the cottages so she is pretty independent. So far so good.

Carefree Cottages tenant review
I've been living here in an adorable, 1 bedroom cottage since August 1,2014. I am completely happy with everything so far!! Peaceful, friendly community with awesome management persons. Johnny-on-the-spot attention to maintenance requests. Happy camper, I am!! Just a couple of blocks from any kind of retail needs I could dream of. After living in a mobile home for 25 years, being responsible for all upkeep, repairs, yard work, etc. expenses, it is an enormous relief to have everything included in affordable rent. I also had to contend with less than acceptable neighbors, noise, etc and the Carefree Cottages community is beautiful and peaceful. Love it!!

I LOVE IT!
It is wonderful! I couldn't have found a nicer place! I live there myself. I love the apartment. Nice and big and beautiful. All brand new everything, including the tub and sink. And it is just beautiful and government subsidized but you wouldn't even believe it. Once a month they have a luncheon, and this last Wednesday they had a Thanksgiving. I play 500 cards, and they play Bingo twice a week. They have Bible studies and communion, and a bus that takes us to church and other places. The income cap is $35,000, and there is no wait list right now. Cottages are gorgeous, and can have a pet. Everything is well kept up. Right out my window is beautiful trees and a pond.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Minnesota regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Minnesota regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Carefree Cottages of Maplewood

Carefree Cottages of Maplewood offers 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Carefree Cottages of Maplewood 7 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
