Homey place for your parents
I felt when we came to tour that this facility was much less busy and hectic than other places that we saw. It also does not have that institutional feeling at all. The apartments have full kitchens and felt more homey. The activities have been great, I like how they provide a shuttle serv

Disappointing
New management with five Executive Directors within one year timeframe. Basic minimum services costly, in comparison to other independent living communities. Emphasis appears to be focused on attaining corporate profit rather than thoughtful measures which could easily be extended to independent residents.

With changes from LifeSpark to CareBuilders on-site care has declined
Mom and I moved here in July 2020. All was really good with LifeSpark staff on-site. Now we have CareBuilders. The service is inconsistent or non existent. My Mom is 77 and I am 54. [name removed] the Director of Vernon Terrace is fully informed of the issues we’ve had and same with [name removed] the owner of CareBuilders. It’s a shame. If you need assisted living care, think twice. Otherwise the facility is nice and lots of activities if a resident wants to participate. Location is awesome. No doubt the Director will be upset with my post. I can only hope she doesn’t retaliate.

Homey place for your parents
I felt when we came to tour that this facility was much less busy and hectic than other places that we saw. It also does not have that institutional feeling at all. The apartments have full kitchens and felt more homey. The activities have been great, I like how they provide a shuttle service so residents don't have to worry about deriving but are still able to get out and about. The nurses on the care staff have all been great but I know they are changing companies so it will be new staff. I would recommend Vernon Terrace for others.

My tour experience
They never showed up for my virtual tour. They felt really bad about it and tied to get me to come back, but I was done at that point. We were also considering moving our loved one to a different state, so that also influenced my decision not to reschedule.

Our Dad really liked the Vernon Terrace. The warmth from the staff AND the residents was wonderful. He really felt at home even though the courtyard is small and the building is older. There is a beautiful library across the street as well as Jerry's groceries and the Edina Senior Center. If you can swing the private pay, this is worth checking out. Small detail, but we really liked it, is resident's last names are on a nice brass plaque on each door. It felt just like a solid front door - a door to a home - than a room in a building. That feeling was throughout. All the staff and residents said hello. It's too expensive for us.

Good place for mom
My mother is a new resident and loves her apartment and this community. She has been very quickly welcomed by other residents and is forming some friendships. She loves the food, has been on a few outings and the convenience of the Edina Senior Senior across the street along with shopping. We are satisfied with our choice of Vernon Terrace.

Does Not Look Inviting
I feel that I did not have a good tour. I did not see much here and I believe an update in decoration and furniture may brighten up the community. It did look and seem to be clean within the facility. My tour guide was on time for our meeting and they also were knowledgeable about the community care. Overall It was not inviting to me.

Short timer happy so far
My Mom moved in about a month ago so we don't have a great amount of experience with this facility yet. So far, she is very happy with her living space, and is getting to know other residents when she has dinner, says they are all ery friendly. She hasn't participated in the activities yet but from what I see, they look very entertaining and fun! The staff has been overall very helpful although we were a little disappointed in how little they knew about setting up Mom's tv connection and told us incorrect information about the process. But overall, she's been happy! As far as value and services, I'm inexperienced in comparing to other independent/assisted listing facilities but feel the cost is prohibitive but probably comparable to others.
