10 Best Nursing Homes in Minneapolis, MN

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Minneapolis is a popular retirement location due to its livability, vibrant cultural scene, and abundant natural beauty. Seniors who need care have various welcoming choices in the Twin Cities.

Selecting a nursing home can feel overwhelming, primarily due to the many definitions associated with the term. While it is often used broadly to encompass senior living, its true definition refers to specialized establishments offering round-the-clock supervision and licensed health care services for seniors, known as skilled nursing facilities. Oftentimes, people are looking for alternative living arrangements, such as assisted living or memory care. Assisted living facilities cater to seniors who are somewhat active but need assistance with some activities of daily living, while memory care facilities serve seniors with memory loss and other related conditions.

A Place for Mom doesn’t partner with standalone nursing homes, but we do partner with 66 assisted living and memory care facilities within a 10-mile radius of downtown Minneapolis. Our guide will explain what you and your family may anticipate from these senior care communities, how to pay for them, and what rules govern them in Minneapolis. We’ll also discuss what Minneapolis as a city has to offer.

My brother was the one that moved into the facility. I think he could have used a little more orienting to what Heathers offers and some follow up on it after a few weeks to make sure he's comfortable there.

How people pay for a nursing home in Minneapolis

Securing skilled care from a nursing home, assisted living community, or memory care facility requires significant resources from seniors and their loved ones. In this section, learn more about common payment choices for senior care, such as through private payment methods, VA benefits, Medicare, and/or Medicaid.

Private pay methods

Skilled nursing, assisted living, and memory care stays can be financed using any combination of private and public sources.

Number of veterans who live in Minneapolis

About 18% of Minneapolis veterans are 75+

Several veteran benefits can help minimize the cost of time in assisted living and memory care facilities in Minneapolis, as VA benefits can be used toward some care services in senior living facilities.

The VA Aid and Attendance benefit can be used to pay for a skilled nursing home, assisted living complex, or memory care facility. For qualified veterans, this benefit will be given as additional compensation on top of the VA Pension.

Veterans can seek help from veterans services officers, primarily found through veterans services organizations (VSOs), to enroll and register for the Aid and Attendance benefit, VA Pension, or any other VA benefit they might be eligible for.

The application processes are often confusing and time-consuming, so it’s recommended that seniors and their caregivers enlist assistance so that seniors can get all the aid they’re entitled to. To that end, consider contacting any of the agencies listed below for benefits advice.

Medicaid

Minnesota’s Medicaid program, Medical Assistance (MA), can help with expenses related to the care given in senior living facilities. For example, Medicaid waivers such as Minnesota’s Home & Community-Based Services program cover in-home medical care services for seniors who need help with daily living tasks. However, Medicaid does not cover the cost of living in an assisted living or memory care facility. Check out the full list of the services MA covers and learn more about MA eligibility requirements in the provided links.

Regrettably, Medicaid only provides coverage for room and board expenses at nursing homes. Seniors residing in assisted living or memory care facilities are unable to utilize Medicaid to offset custodial expenses. However, Medicaid does cover medically essential services.

Minnesota’s Department of Human Services website outlines information on how seniors 65 and older should apply for MA. In short, seniors can apply for coverage by mailing in a paper application, or they can take the application to their local county or tribal health care office Alternately, seniors can call 651-431-2670 or 800-657-3739 and request having an MA application mailed directly to them.

Some seniors may additionally be eligible for Minnesota’s Elderly Waiver program, which offers financial support for services (personal care assistance and skilled nursing care) that enable seniors to stay in their own homes, which includes assisted living and memory care facilities. Seniors must qualify for Medical Assistance in order to qualify for the Elderly Waiver.

Seniors who don’t have Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare (a program for low-income Minnesotans who don’t have access to affordable health care coverage) can still apply for health insurance through MNSure, Minnesota’s health insurance marketplace. For Medicaid advice and alternatives, contact local resources like health care ombudsman programs or the Area Agency on Aging, which in Minneapolis is known as Trellis.

Medicare

Medicare is a government-run health insurance program for adults aged 65 and up that doesn’t cover custodial care but does cover care in some skilled nursing facilities. What are custodial costs for seniors in memory care or assisted living? Think of non-skilled personal care, such as help with the activities of daily living like eating, bathing, dressing, moving around, and using the bathroom, plus room and board.

Medicare may, though, cover medically essential in-home care medical needs, and Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) may fund skilled nursing facility (SNF) treatment when it’s medically necessary for the senior to have such care (e.g., they need sterile dressings changed). For more information on Medicare coverage, visit the official Medicare website or call 1-800-MEDICARE (633-4227).

Minnesota seniors also have access to several Medicare Savings Program choices to assist those who qualify with medical costs. Medicare Savings Plans (MSPs) and the Medicare Part D Low Income Subsidy (LIS) can also assist seniors with Medicare Part A and B expenditures (such as monthly premiums, deductibles, copays, and coinsurance). The Senior LinkAge Line is Minnesota’s federally designated State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) that provides unbiased Medicare counseling. Call Senior LinkAge at 800-333-2433 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays for advice or help applying for Medicare. Or visit the Social Security Administration office to apply for these services.

As noted, seniors in Minnesota can receive free health insurance advice and assistance through the State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), which can help with insurance policy comparison and choosing the best plan. Other state and local programs may also be available depending on income and other variables. Although Minnesota doesn’t have an official pharmaceutical assistance program, the Minnesota Board on Aging helps people save money on prescription drugs through the Senior LinkAge Line, which can direct seniors to manufacturer-sponsored patient assistance programs and assist them in filling out applications for assistance.

For further information, seniors can call the Senior LinkAge Line, get help from their local long-term care ombudsman’s office, or visit the Social Security Administration office.

Understand Minnesota laws and regulations for nursing homes

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) licenses and regulates senior living facilities through its Office of Health Facility Complaints. To get a license to operate a nursing home in Minnesota, the facility must follow state and federal regulations, such as minimum staffing standards, medication administration, infection control, and resident rights. The institution must also pass a stringent inspection process, including an MDH survey, to verify compliance with state and federal requirements.

The Minnesota Administrative Rules: Chapter 4658 regulates nursing homes in Minnesota, covering licensure and operation requirements, staffing, resident care, facility safety, resident rights (privacy, dignity, and access to medical care), and prevention of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. The law ensures high-quality care for nursing home residents and provides that they should be treated with decency and respect. Minnesota outlines specific staffing regulations for nursing home facilities, including requiring a registered nurse to always be on duty. The state also mandates minimum staffing ratios for nursing homes based on the number of residents. For full details on Minnesota’s laws regarding nursing homes, refer to the 2022 Minnesota Statutes: Chapter 144A.

Federally, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services oversees nursing home care. CMS establishes minimum standards for all nursing homes to meet in order to participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs. Minnesota nursing homes must also follow state laws and undergo regular inspections by the MDH to ensure compliance with both state and federal regulations. These inspections cover resident care, medication administration, personnel, infection control, and facility cleaning. Inspection reports and licenses are available on the MDH website.

Assisted living and memory care facilities

Chapter 144G of Minnesota’s legislation, “Assisted Living Services and Home Care Licensing,” outlines the rules for registering and operating assisted living facilities in the state, including the obligations of residents and providers. The Minnesota Rules governing assisted living licensure, found in Chapter 4659, detail the licensing criteria for these facilities, including specifications for the physical plant, resident care, staffing, and food service.

Assisted living facilities in Minnesota are subject to a number of regulations, such as the requirement that a licensed assisted living director is in charge at all times and that at least one clinical nurse supervisor be employed by the facility, which may be the same person as the director. While there are no mandated staff-to-resident ratios, facilities must ensure that they have enough staff members to meet the needs of all residents and must review staffing plans at least twice per year. Additionally, assisted living facilities must comply with all safety and fire codes, provide three nutritious meals daily plus snacks, and make food menus available to residents a week in advance.

In Minnesota, memory care facilities must adhere to certain standards in addition to the regulations for assisted living facilities, which cover areas such as staff training, staffing levels, and resident care and safety procedures. Specifically, Section 144G.83 of the state’s assisted living statutes requires that personnel at memory care facilities receive additional training.

Furthermore, Minnesota’s assisted living and memory care facilities must comply with the Bill of Rights for Assisted Living Residents.

A minimum of one inspection every two years will be conducted without prior notice to ensure compliance with all regulations and laws. Assisted living facilities’ inspection reports and licenses are available for public viewing at Minnesota’s Health Department’s website.

COVID-19 regulations for Minneapolis nursing homes

In Minneapolis, there are no COVID restrictions in place specifically for nursing homes. However, the local Health Department outlines best practices that assisted living and memory care facilities and other long-term care facilities can implement to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Some senior living homes may have additional policies in place, so inquire with prospective communities. In general, the COVID-19 best practices in Minneapolis are aligned to these Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines:

Vaccinations.

Employees and visitors are encouraged to have current COVID-19 immunizations and updated booster doses.

Masking.

Masks are not required at health care facilities in Minneapolis, though they may be required at specific locations. People with symptoms, a positive COVID test, or recent exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a high-quality mask or respirator.

Facility cleanliness.

Facilities should keep surfaces sanitized and ensure their ventilation systems offer good airflow to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

Staff safety.

Staff must wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, especially after being in a public area or blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing. Alternatively, they can use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

What to expect from nursing homes in Minneapolis

Moving into a senior care facility can be challenging for seniors and their loved ones. Luckily, there are numerous senior living facility choices available in the Twin Cities, including 66 A Place for Mom partner assisted living and memory care communities.

Seniors and their families looking for nursing home care are typically looking for assisted living, memory care, or some combination of the two. These facilities don’t offer skilled nursing exclusively, but constant medical care is not always what someone needs.

Minneapolis offers a highly desirable variety of care options for seniors. Within a 10-mile radius of downtown Minneapolis, A Place for Mom’s network includes 66 senior living facilities

A variety of care options

Many care seekers favor locations that combine assisted living and memory care so that their senior loved ones can stay in place even if their care needs change.

Convenient living for Twin City seniors

Senior living facilities in Minneapolis combine the best of both worlds when it comes to urban and natural environments. Though they tend to have easy access to all the amenities of city living, they mirror Minnesota’s gorgeous, lake-dotted landscape by providing pockets of solace within a busy environment. Situated in a northern latitude and benefiting from lake effect weather from Lake Superior, seniors who retire in Minneapolis can enjoy mild summers that allow for outdoor activities, even midday. None of the facilities are too far from parks and nature centers or shopping malls; no matter a senior’s lifestyle, they can find communities that meet their needs.

Various enrichment activities and amenities

Senior living facilities in Minneapolis offer social and mental enrichment, with indoor and outdoor common areas for socializing and visiting loved ones and activities planned for their senior residents. Of the 66 senior living facilities in A Place for Mom’s network, 74% have activity directors who orchestrate activities and excursions for their residents, and 65% of facilities feature planned day trips and outings. Many communities offer stretching classes (60%) and yoga or chair yoga (54%); trivia games (59%) and happy hours (66%); and birthday and holiday parties (74%). These activities serve to maintain residents’ minds, bodies, and spirits.

Even more options a little farther out

The Minneapolis area offers even more possibilities within a 25-mile radius of downtown.
