Review of Tradition Living

The staff is amazing and friendly they've kept us safe from the virus. The food is wonderful and the service is great. This is the only place I'd want to live for senior living.

I've been happy here since May 2019 when I moved in. A very friendly place, very cooperative and helpful. My kids and I have all felt very secure since I moved here.

Review of Tradition Living

I moved into Traditions [date removed] because of COVID - no visitors and all activities were canceled. This wasn't how it was supposed to be. The staff has been supportive and understanding, all residents are very friendly. Meals have been good and the kitchen has done an excellent job. I'm very glad I made the move.

Great place to live.

I have lived in the community from the time Tradition was built and toured it many times. I also have attended many luncheons and parties here over the years. The personal have always been very friendly, and helpful. This is the reason i'm living here today from all these experience's.

Great place for my grandparents

The staff was super friendly. Management was very knowledgeable and truly care for seniors. The nursing department is great, knowledgeable, and caring. The marketing lady, I think her name was [name removed] was awesome, and really knew her stuff. [name removed] was very knowledgeable about all things with housing and social work. The activities department keeps the residents busy and engaged in the community. The executive director really has an all-star staff assembled with the shining star of the building being the amazing culinary department. The service staff is fine dining all the way, with the food to match. Tradition is truly one of the best senior communities in the area.

A great place

It is affordable. The units are better size than anything that I saw, originally built as condos. My mom likes the food. The layout is good. They have outdoor space for the residents to use. The staff has been amazing during Covid-19. Trying to keep the residents' spirits up.

Love it more each day

I've been here 4 years now and love it very much, more each day. I enjoy meeting and helping new people and making them feel welcome. I love to play bingo and color and do other activities. I can come and go like I did in my townhouse and can help others too.

Review of Tradition Brooklyn Park

This has been our "home" since November of 2012. My husband died in 2015 and I have lived here ever since. I appreciate the caring staff, the good food, the pleasant surroundings. No complaints!

A happy safe place to live

I moved here 2 years ago and it was the best move I ever made. It is like gaining another family. We all look out for each other and there is always someone to go to for help if you need it. If you care to participate there are many activities to join . The atmosphere is friendly and inviting. Besides all this the food is excellent.

I GOT LUCKY--my Mother spent 13 years in assisted living--and I never thought I could afford the card for that long--But here I am and I want to live to be 112 years old and I hope to afford it with my monthly income here at Tradition

Everyone is friendly and always greets you with a smile. I like that. I try to remember all their names--a course with [name removed] (How to win friends and influence people his book) told me that a person always likes to hear their name. So when I hear a name I associate it with another person, place or thing , I can remember it very easily--thanks to my good memory that the good Lord has blessed me with. Then I get to hear my name when I say Hi to a person. Method to my madness The food is delicious and everything is very tasty and the waiters are so nice and also smiling all the time. I really enjoy the Continental breakfast where you can choose what you like and should have for Breakfast. Then seated with my new friends--I can't tell you how much I delight in just Breakfast. Also the Dinners are very nicely served and prepared. Activities (there are too many) so I am very busy doing card games and socializing and learning new games every day. There is lots to do here. And when you get tired just go to your own apartment and it welcomes you. I am very blessed to find such a lovely place as TRADITION Yep, we have church services on Sunday--which I like. I even came here to cold Minnesota from a warm climate Tucson, Arizona--and I am so so happy to be near my son and meet these friendly people--had to give up my Arizona ones.

Tradition in Brooklyn Park

My mom moved into Tradition about 2 months ago, and absolutely loves it. She was very hesitant to move from her current home, but it turned out to be a great decision. She said she didn’t realize how lonely she was until she moved to her new apartment. The residents and staff have been so welcoming. She’s able to socialize in the front lobby and meals in the dining room....speaking of the dining room, amazing food and staff there as well.?? As her daughter it makes me so happy to see her happy! We both would highly recommend Tradition!

Review of Traditions Brooklyn Park

We lived in a town home 6 blocks away. Once we decided to move we checked Br. Center, Maple Grove and Br. Park. Tradition filled all of our needs .Location to everything we needed. Drs., church, stores, Maple Grove, Family and more. We have lived here since February 2018. Our apartment is first class. Dining room (10 meals a moth-part of our rent) staff and even our neighbors are great. When we have a problem in our apartment it is taken care of promptly.
