Minnesota Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

Minnesota is the twelfth-largest state by area in the U.S., it is the 21st most populous, with just over five million residents as of 2006. The state is known as the "Land of 10,000 Lakes," and those lakes and the other waters for which the state is named, together with state and national forests and parks, offer residents, tourists and retirees a vigorous outdoor lifestyle.
While Minnesota doesn't have the ocean vistas that many retirees crave, it is known for having some of the kindest and most approachable residents around. It has numerous rivers and streams where many canoe and kayak. Birdwatchers enjoy the Lac qui Parle ("the lake that speaks") and Salt Lake for sightings of rare species. Fishermen have a variety of lakes to choose from for large-mouth bass fishing, and outdoor enthusiasts take part in the ample skiing, snowmobile and hiking trails.
