Review ofThe Harbors Senior Living of Fridley
4.9

It has been a very unsettling time for loved ones trying to find a place during the pandemic, we chose the harbors because of how small and personal it is and couldn't be happier. The director is always checking in on the residents and the nurse is available 24/7 for questions big or small. The food has been wonderful. Only thing I wish we could get is more activities but understand the pandemic has voided some of them. The community is beautiful and the care staff are pleasant.

It's a very clean place, and there's a very pleasant, friendly, family feel among the staff. I know that they're all working hard to provide a safe and good environment for my dad. Because it's a new facility, I'm curious to see how things will grow in terms of whether or not there will be a change in the care that's provided. Right now, the staff to resident ratio is very good, and I'm pleased about all that they do offer. My dad tells me the food is very good. There's a good variety, and he appreciates their comfort food approach. They serve plenty of meatloaf, turkey and gravy, hearty sandwiches, soups. For breakfast, they have not just scrambled eggs every day but also waffles, oatmeal, pancakes. They follow nutritional guidelines for fruits and veggies. The food is freshly prepared and doesn't taste like your typical cafeteria type food. He also loves the desserts. They have lots of nice pies and cakes and sweet things. One area they could improve on is activities. Because they're newer, they don't have an activities director hired on yet. So they're trying to give the residents things like puzzles and coloring books, and there's a putting green. But they haven't really made a schedule of various activities yet.

Rose Arbor feels very homey, and the staff are very friendly they always are greeting us when we come to visit. So far our loved ones have not complained about the meals and dining, and they started to open everything back up once the staff and residents were vaccinated. They also recently started to let families come to visit once they were fully vaccinated, they are still be very cautious but reasonable. Our only complaint we had which has now been resolved was the transition from independent living to assisted living was a little difficult. We did not know what was included and not included in the price, it was just a little confusing.

Complete guide to independent living

Prior Lake, Minnesota

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a good alternative to this situation. You or your loved one may live their lives as they desire while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your plan: wellness program, move-in fee, laundry, meals, field trips, utilities, initial assessment fee, and parking. The benefits associated with independent living include game/TV room, community activities, concierge services, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, laundry service, and beauty salon & barber shop.
