Recent reviews of Independent Living in Minneapolis, MN
Cornerstone Assisted Living of Plymouth
3.5

It’s a good location for the area. It is a smaller size but I feel it is a nice size. If we had not brought in hospice early out I ‘m not sure it would have worked out for my parents. It is more set up for higher functioning folks. Food is good. Rooms were well designed. Move in process was easy and the marketing person was good. Some of the nurses were less helpful than other support staff. The Covid virus made it hard for everyone.

The Lodge at Little Canada
5.0

I really like living at The Lodge at Little Canada. It has new carpet and paint. It came with a washer and dryer in my apartment. The building is very secure, so I feel safe. I have a small deck that I can go out and sit and enjoy a beverage. The people I have met so far are really friendly. It is close and convenient to shopping and restaurants. It is very handy to get to the highway. I really like their underground parking. It is located in a nice and quiet area. I provide my own meals. I'm still unpacking and getting settled in, but they have some type of activities going on every day. They have a community room for parties, activities, and you are able to reserve the room for private affairs. They have an exercise room and a room with a pool table.They also have movie nights for the residents to get together. They pay for the water and provide basic channels for the T.V. They have a terrific full-time maintenance man. They said to call anytime and I did. My bulb burned out right after I moved in and I couldn't reach it, and they were johnny on the spot and replaced it right away. The maintenance guy is very friendly and helpful. It is a secure building. I feel very safe here. I would definitely recommend this community to friends and family.

Meadow Woods in Bloomington, MN
5.0

I think they do a great job at Meadow Woods! The staff here is very friendly and easy to work with. They've been very accommodating in regards to some billing issues we've had in regards to getting funding with the VA straightened out. The facility itself is well kept and clean, and they do a great job looking after the people who live here!

In Minneapolis, MN, seniors have access to local offices and organizations that may help them obtain financial assistance for senior care, including:

Transportation

The city of Minneapolis is consistently ranked as one of the most bikeable cities in the country, with miles of trails and bike-only lanes. Public transit is available through Minnesota Metro Transit, which operates bus lines all over the Twin Cities and the surrounding metropolitan area. The city also operates two light rails lines — the Green line, which runs from the business district of Minneapolis to St. Paul, and covers the University of Minnesota campus on both the east and west banks of the Mississippi, and the Blue line, which extends from downtown all the way to the southern suburb of Bloomington.

Health care

Minneapolis offers several health care providers for seniors wanting to be proactive about their health or for seniors seeking treatment for chronic conditions. The area has several hospitals, with the Hennepin County Medical Center as a prominent option.

Senior activities

Minneapolis is a vibrant city with a deeply rooted love for music, food, and the outdoors. Known for their “Minnesota nice” attitudes, the people of Minneapolis tend to be friendlier than your average city dweller. The city has a number of museums, one of the most interesting and unique of which is the Mill City Museum, located on the banks of the Mississippi River. The former site of a large flour mill owned by General Mills, this historical museum also has tons of outdoor walking paths that follow the banks of the Mississippi all throughout the Twin Cities.

For food, Nicollet Avenue, or ‘Eat Street,’ has tons of award-winning and affordable dining options that highlight the city's diversity. Shopping enthusiasts will appreciate that the city runs a direct bus route to the Mall of America, one of the largest shopping centers in the world, with hundreds of retail stores. Minneapolis is also a treat for professional sports fans — local teams include the Vikings (NFL), the Wild (NHL), the Twins (MLB), and the Timberwolves (NBA).

What is independent living?

Independent living offers a stress-free lifestyle for older adults. Independent living communities don’t provide personal care or supervision, but do offer generally healthy adults opportunities for socialization and hassle-free living. Independent living services often include:

  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Home maintenance and repairs
  • Social activities and outings
