  • Bumpy road

    I would not recommend this location for Assisted Living. I felt like they did not provide the care level that we were paying for consistently. It was just not a good fit for my mom's specific situation at the time.

  • A Country Club for Dad

    Kind, extremely flexible and helpful onboarding process! Lovely staff. Lots of activity options. Table shuffleboard, pool table, massive video screens, smoothie bar, large wrap-around 2nd story screen porch, and wonderful meals. It's like a Country Club.

  • DONT PUT YOUR LOVED ONE HERE!

    Stay as far away from this place as you can. If you truly love your loved one, bypass this place. Always short staffed, medication errors poor rating with the state, formerly the Lighthouse of Columbia Heights. Had to change their name to get a clean slate with state of MN. Too many cases of neglect and death by neglect, registered with state of MN. Hard to find but they are all there. Management constantly changes, nurses leave all the time, can’t keep staff. No real supervision on the weekends and Holidays. Don’t throw your loved one or your money away. This place is despicable! First hand knowledge I had my loved one There and moved them immediately when I really realized what was going on behind the scenes. It’s all smoke and mirrors.
