Wonderful place!

About the facility
North Star

North Star Retirement is an independent and assisted living retirement community located in beautiful Coeur d’Alene Idaho. Our Seltice Way address provides easy access to I-90 as well as walking trails down to the river’s edge and a beautiful view of Riverstone pond. We are minutes away from medical facilities, banks, shopping centers, restaurants, and movie theatres. We are an active retirement community that takes advantage of all the area has to offer.

When you enter the doors of North Star, there is a definite feeling of “home”. Music fills the Bistro, and the wonderful scents of our Fireside Restaurant tempt your taste buds. Friendships and laughter are nurtured during our gatherings, happy hours, and outings. Our independent living offers apartment style living, with all-day dining in our Fireside Restaurant. We offer two daily specials or residents can order from our full variety menu.

In April of 2017, we opened fourteen new apartments in our beautiful assisted living wing. The apartments are both elegant and spacious. All of our assisted living apartments are equipped with private showers, refrigerators, twenty four hour available care, a full activities calendar, three meals every day with the choice of the daily special or to order off...

Wonderful place!
Moved my mother to Northstar from Arizona. She has been so much happier. The food has been good, friendships have been made very quickly, and she feels like she's home instead of in an "institution." The staff have been stellar at accommodating her needs. They were very patient while she got used to a new place and let her explore on her own and when she needed assistance with anything, they were there with a smiling face and happy disposition. Absolutely fabulous!

The care on the Assisted Living side is excellent. The whole place is clean and organized. Apartments are very nice. The price is about the same as other Assisted Living Facilities in the area that are not near as nice. Highly recommend.

North Star is a blessing! Mom is not just comfortable, she's thriving. We chose North Star because in touring the building and talking with staff, we were confident that she would be in a safe, comfortable and caring environment. Our expectations have been exceeded.

A Great and Caring Place for Loved Ones
What our family likes the most about the North Start community is the caregivers they have their and their longevity. The quality of care they give to the residents is great. The cost is not over the top at all and we would absolutely recommend North Star to other families looking for a place for their loved ones.

a nice community
One thing our family and our loved one has realized at North Star is that it has that true family like atmosphere and has that sense of community. Everything we have seen on our visits - and we do visit often, has been great. The activities are great and there are plenty of different things and opportunities to do. The meals and dining service so far has been great and we would absolutely recommend this community to other families.

A Good Place to Retire
I haven't been here that long, so nothing great and important has happened just yet. The food is excellent. There's lots of variety, and they don't repeat things a lot, which is nice. Right now my apartment has a room with a bay window. But it's on the small side, so I'm just in the process of moving into a little bit larger apartment. They come and clean my apartment once a week. They change the linens, vacuum, dust, wipe things down, whatever we need. The staff are all very friendly, and they remember everyone's names and know who you are. It's been very pleasant.

My father is a resident here in independent living. I have been so pleased with the friendly atmosphere and caring nature here at Northstar in Cour d’Alene. To call the employees staff is hard for me because they treat my father so well. I feel like they are my extended family every time I walk in the door. When my father had an issue with laundry times it was resolved. The dining service is excellent with a wide variety to choose from. I am very happy with his choice when he decided to make such an important move.

Great experience
I was asked by my mom if I would take my Grandma to see North Star. We had a wonderful and informative tour. We were shown the two bedroom apartment. The space and storage were fantastic. The facility was well thought out and it offered so many activities to make it feel like a community. A place to enjoy life together with your neighbors and friends. We were treated to a lunch and I was so surprised at how wonderful our experience was. The dining room was beautiful, the menu had so much to offer and the staff was attentive. The food was as good as a nice restaurant. We both walked away knowing this was a great next step should the time come to make that decision.

A Place for Mom has scored North Star 9.6 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.
