Assisted Living: $3,992, Memory Care: $2,758
Ecumen Centennial House is a nonprofit senior community near downtown Minneapolis. The community features three interconnected cottage-style buildings that create a cozy, self-enclosed neighborhood. Seniors live in maintenance-free private residences and have access to multiple communal areas, including an outdoor patio and an indoor multipurpose area where movies, classes, group activities and spiritual services occur. An executive chef develops seasonal menus and daily specials that incorporate local, organic ingredients. Three daily meals are served in a communal dining room, although private dining is available, as are in-room meals. Centennial House has 24-hour staffing, and each resident has access to an emergency response system. The community is partners with Bluestone Physicians Group, which provides in-house nurse practitioners and physicians, so seniors don't have to leave the community for medical appointments. On-site dental, hearing, vision and podiatry services are available.
