Catholic Health Care in Minneapolis
The Twin Cities have a thriving Catholic community, which is good news for seniors looking for Catholic assisted living in Minneapolis. Because of the work of organizations such as Catholic Eldercare and the Catholic Senior Services pilot program run by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, it’s easy to find exactly the services you need, from home caregiver assistance to specialized memory care.
Resource Referrals and Care Consulting
For seniors and families that are just beginning to seek out eldercare resources, Catholic Senior Services may be able to provide help. The local archdiocese’s new program helps families find transportation, caregiver support and assisted living information through parishes across the Twin Cities area. One of the goals of the program is to help seniors stay in their own homes as long as safely possible while increasing senior wellness and community involvement.
Catholic Eldercare Senior Communities
The not-for-profit group Catholic Eldercare has been providing senior care in Minneapolis for more than 30 years. Today, Catholic Eldercare operates 5 residential communities and an adult day care program, providing a full spectrum of senior care from independent living to dementia care and skilled nursing.
Catholic Eldercare on Main is the group’s skilled nursing facility, offering semi-private rooms, interdisciplinary professional care teams, and a full and varied activity calendar, along with on-site pastoral care services. There is also a memory care unit designed with patient safety foremost in mind.
The facility is also home to Catholic Eldercare’s state-licensed adult day care program, which helps seniors live in their homes longer without becoming isolated or bored. Spiritual activities, hot meals, exercise, and classes are just some of the services available to clients.
Next door to Catholic Eldercare on Main is MainStreet Lodge, one of the group’s assisted living facilities. MainStreet Lodge offers fully accessible private floor plans, linen and housekeeping service, hot meals, and social activities, wellness classes, and outings. Both MainStreet and Eldercare on Main are just a few steps from St. Anthony of Padua church, where many residents attend Mass.
For more privacy and more activities, RiverVillage East, along with the east bank of the Mississippi, gives assisted living residents a choice of four4 floor plans, a full slate of creative and social activities, a covered walkway to St. Hedwig church, and specialized services for residents who need memory care. Next door, RiverVillage North offers independent living for low-income seniors, with ample living space in a safe neighborhood and the option to participate in RiverVillage East activities.
Catholic Eldercare’s newest senior living option is 1101 on Main, a luxury independent living complex in Northeast Minneapolis that provides all the comforts of an upscale home without the maintenance hassles. Situated in a walkable neighborhood, the complex gives residents easy access to restaurants, galleries, and shops.
