I would highly recommend New Perspective
My experience with the team at New Perspective has been incredible! I own a home care agency in California so I deal with families in crisis all the time. When I found myself having to deal with some very intense and time sensitive deadlines with my 90 year old mother, I needed a team that could help me navigate the complexities of transferring care for mom to their facility. The team at New Perspective was flexible and responsive to the needs of my family. Everyone was so professional!! I highly recommend this facility. If I owned a home care agency in Minnesota, I would have no reservations about recommending New Perspective to any family I was working with.....they would be in good hands:-)

Wonderful care for Mom.
My mother spent her last 13 months of life at New Perspectives. She and I were both apprehensive about her moving there and the huge change in lifestyle that would be. Both our concerns were quickly alleviated. The friendly and caring staff made her feel welcome and safe and the friends she quickly made with other residents made her life enjoyable. As her health declined her care and attendance by the staff continued to keep her comfortable, well cared for, and respectfully groomed. We were always pleased when we came to visit and were frequently appraised of her condition between those visits. New Perspectives made my mother's final days respectful and comfortable and her family's lives far more relaxed and reassured. They were truly a blessing to us.

We recently moved my 80 year old father into the transitional memory care unit and we couldn't be happier! Friendly staff, home style food and great amenities. Nurses, aides, receptionist, culinary staff, all receive high marks from our family.

We toured this community
When we went on a tour here we were impressed. The staff was nice and answered all of my questions. It was a lovely place and clean. They offered lots of daily activities. They had bus tours they would go on. My sister loves to walk and it had a walking path around it. We had lunch here and it was excellent. It just wasn't a good fit for my sister.

Mom loves it here
We toured this community. And we fell in love . It had everything mom needed. The food is always being raved by my mother. The caregivers here are great and helpful. It is alway clean and tidy. She enjoys the activities like bingo and rosary they even have a bus that will take them to walgreens and things like that. The grounds are well maintained. The staff communicates well with the family. I would recommend this community.

An Alright Experience
I have had a few issues with this community, I'am hoping things improve. The community is fairly well-kept, it could be better. She has tired a painting class. We are disappointed in the food. It has been an alright experience so far.

Frequently Asked Questions
about New Perspective Waconia

New Perspective Waconia offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored New Perspective Waconia 8.5 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.
