Luxury Retirement Homes in Minneapolis

Luxury Retirement Homes in Minneapolis

Minneapolis has a lot to recommend it as a senior living destination, from endless free visits at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to beautiful lakes and parks along the river. For seniors who want their day to day lifestyle to be as appealing as the city’s cultural and natural resources, there are luxury senior living resources to be found throughout the “Minni-Apple.”

Upscale urban senior living

The Kenwood in the Lowry Hill neighborhood makes it easy to visit the renowned sculpture garden at the Walker Art Center and several local parks. At street level, the surrounding neighborhood features historic homes and businesses, while the Kenwood’s rooftop deck gives residents a grand view of the city’s downtown skyline. The community offers independent living, assisted living, and short-term stay options. It’s also a hub for community events such as live music performances, author appearances, and talks with local policymakers.

Local produce and fresh herbs from Kenwood’s garden enhance the dining room’s menus, and residents can order hot meals delivered from the kitchen to their doors for private dining, date nights, and family gatherings. The Kenwood also has an assisted living manager on-site full-time and round-the-clock on-call RN service.

Sumptuous senior living in Southwest Minneapolis

The Fulton neighborhood is home to The Waters on 50th, a new senior living community with several levels of care which offers amenities like a day spa with massage therapy services, heated underground parking, and a private dining room residents can reserve for special events.

The Waters is pet-friendly, and the surrounding area is a great place for strolls with friends, both human and canine. The Waters is within walking distance of Pershing Park, the Red Cow wine bar, Mozza Mia pizzeria, and the Edina Grill. Lake Harriett’s scenic shores and walking trails are just a short drive away. Residents who don’t drive — or who would rather ride — can take the Waters’ shuttle bus around town.

Elegant senior living in Edina

A bit further to the southwest, in the suburb of Edina, York Gardens provides assisted living, skilled nursing, and memory care, all designed to give residents the care they need while offering the freedom to take classes, join social clubs, relax at the on-site spa, and spend some time gardening or relaxing on one of York Gardens’ rooftop patios.

Three parks are close to York Gardens, along with Centennial Lake. Whole Foods Market and Jamba Juice are also located nearby for healthy grocery shopping and snacking, and Michael’s and Jo-Ann Fabrics for craft supplies.

Luxurious senior living at Lake Minnetonka

The new Folkestone senior community in the Promenade at Wayzata sits near Lake Minnetonka in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. This continuum-of-care community offers lots of care options in a master-planned, walkable setting that connects residents with the Folkestone conservatory, wellness center, lap pool, and restaurant. Wayzata restaurants, pubs, parks, and coffee shops are all within walking distance, as is the local yacht club on the Wayzata Bay shore of Lake Minnetonka.
