Recent reviews of Independent Living in Mankato, MN
Brookdale Mankato
4.0

I would recommend this community to someone who is looking for assisted living for their loved one. My father moved here but they were not able to provide the level of care he needs.When he initially moved in this was a good fit for his care needs but we later found out he needed to move into a nursing home. The staff was friendly and the community is very clean, it just wasn't a good match.

Vista Prairie at Monarch Meadows in North Mankato, MN
5.0

Things are going quite well for my mom. She likes the meals that they make her and she gets 2 meals a day and we feel that it is nutritious. The social aspect of eating with the residents is good for her. They are all nice and the workers are too.

Old Main Village in Mankato, MN
5.0

Old Main Village is amazing. There isn't anything I don't like about the place. The atmosphere is perfect and the staff is so friendly, we felt right at home. The food is amazing and the chef is fantastic. The residents just rave about the meals. They also have so many activities and outings for the residents like plays, Lunch Bunch, live music, happy hour once a week, exercise, classes, and others. Even the bus driver who transports the residents is amazing. At Old Main Village, they will create any excuse to bring people together. It's wonderful, and I feel I can't say enough good things about it. I would highly recommend it.
