Independent Living in Minnesota

Overview of Independent Living in Minnesota

Located on the banks of Lake Superior and at the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi river, Minnesota has earned the nickname “Land of 10,000 Lakes” for good reason. In fact, there are 11,842 lakes in the state that cover a total of over 2.6 million acres. Minnesota is truly a nature lover’s paradise, filled with lakes, rivers, wide open prairies, and dense pine forests. Many locals enjoy fishing and hunting during the summer and snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter. The state has a large Scandinavian influence, and Minnesotans are often known for being “Minnesota Nice” – the locals tend to be hospitable and friendly, and enjoy sharing each other’s company over a home-cooked meal. Whether you’re a fan of relaxing in nature and enjoying outdoor recreation, or you’d prefer spending time in a major city like Minneapolis, Minnesota has something to offer everyone.

Let A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors help you find the best retirement homes Minnesota has to offer. Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 290 independent living communities in Minnesota. The median monthly cost of independent living in Minnesota is about $2,050.

I like that she has the option to get meals there and that 10 dinners are included in the rent. My mom really appreciates all activities. When she moved in, she sold her car, so having the van is important....
