Our experience with Thorne Crest was very short. We set up my parents in independent living and shortly after we moved them in one parent started showing major signs of needing to be put in a memory care unit. Thorne Crest has a small memory care unit with a big waiting list. We needed to look for another open location in a memory care unit.

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.

A Place for Mom has scored Thorne Crest Senior Living Community, a CCRC 8 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.
