My sister and I were looking for assisted living for our dad who had been living in his own home for 96 years but now needed additional services to stay active and independent. We found "Elk River Senior Living". The apartment is spacious and very accessible. The knowledge that someone checks on him daily and assists with basic morning and evening care is a heaven sent. In the past if we called him and he did not pick up we would really start to worry!! Now we know he's safe and probably out and about. They have encouraged him to participate in the ongoing daily activities provided, by not just posting them but reminding him of what's going on day to day and helping get to the location of the activity whether it's fitness classes, movies, bingo, happy hour to name a very few of all that's available to partake in. ALL the staff are respectful, and caring individuals.
Having to leave your home is probably one of the most difficult decisions anyone has to make and we know that it was for our dad but he embraces the fact that he has access to medical assistance 24 hours a day and that's the reassurance he did not have living alone.

I was having lunch of a chef salad with my mom in the dining room. I recently had a knee replacement and have been having trouble healing. I had to leave halfway through the meal to go back to my mom's room to get in a more comfortable chair. Shortly after, Ahmed came into my mom's room with my salad. He was concerned that I was only able to eat half my meal because of my knee and wanted me to enjoy the rest of it in my mom's room. We chatted a bit about his wife's knee and my knee. He really touched my heart with that gesture...he didn't have to do it but that's the kind of staff Elk River Senior Living has. When I come to visit Mom, Ahmed always has a friendly "hello.” We are very pleased with our mom's progress and feel blessed that we found this facility. Thank you, ERSL!

To say that the process of finding a good landing nest for your aging relatives, when the need comes, is anything other than arduous, is an understatement! We read about it for years, coming this way was the wall of aging baby boomers, that's my generation, and more importantly our parents, this industry is completely out capacitied in every aspect of the facilities available to us today. My great aunt has been looking for the perfect senior living facility in the Elk River area for awhile. We recently checked out the newly built Elk River Senior Homes and we were so impressed with the quality of the units! The amenities and finishes make the units feel homey, especially thoughtful items like screened outdoor spaces and heated floors. The floor plans are awesome too. My great aunt is so excited to move in and call this place home!

My parents have lived at Elk River Senior Living for over a year. Mom and Dad are so busy with the wide variety of activities offered that I have to check their schedule to see if they can fit me in. I am so happy they take part because they have created some amazing friendships. The staff at Elk River Senior Living is great because they are courteous and helpful and treat the residents and their families with the utmost respect.

Moving a loved one out of their home and into an assisted living facility is a difficult decision, and doing so during a pandemic is even more heartbreaking. My siblings and I all live out of state, so it was important for us to find just the right place for our father.

As soon as we met Deb and the team at Elk River Senior Living, we knew we had found that place. Deb helped us through every step of the process. We communicated daily and transitioned my father into his “new home” without a glitch.

The team is caring and compassionate, and we know in our hearts that our father is exactly where he should be. When I expressed to Deb how hard it was going to be to leave him, she simply replied, ‘We are only a phone call away.’

We are extremely grateful for our new family at Elk River Senior Living.
