Senior Living Apartments That Feel Like Home

180 total views

The words “senior living” can feel intimidating to many people when they hit retirement age. Maybe you don’t feel old enough to move into a senior living community. Or maybe you’re hesitant to leave a home you’ve lived in for decades.

But senior living can actually mean more independence and a more luxurious lifestyle.

While moving out of your home and into a new environment can come with physical and emotional stress, what you gain when you move to Walker Place often outweighs the challenges that come with the transition. Find out why moving to Walker Place sooner (rather than later) can be just the change you need to live your best life in retirement.

Spacious, low-maintenance senior living apartments

Most Walker Place residents moved out of a house when they transitioned to our community. While transitioning from a house to an apartment can be an adjustment, it can also mean gaining time and freedom when you give up the hassles of maintaining a home.

We pride ourselves on some of the most spacious senior apartment layouts in the Twin Cities, meaning there’s plenty of room for storage, living, and customizing your space to feel like home. Whether you want new cabinets in your kitchen or new flooring throughout your apartment, you’ll have the freedom to make your space truly feel like home. 

The senior living amenities you want (and need)

Your family is welcome here

Home should be a place where you can invite family and friends to eat dinner, sit around a fire, play games, and spend time together. Walker Place is designed to be a place where the people you love can join you for meals, celebrate holidays, and simply say hello during the evenings or weekends. Apartments offer full kitchens and spacious living rooms for hosting. And our building also offers spaces to book for larger gatherings.

Invite your family and friends over for a catered dinner prepared by our in-house chef. Have your kids get a membership to join you at our state-of-the-art fitness center. You can even bring your grandchildren to our on-site library or teach them to garden with the patio’s raised gardens. 

Stay close to everything you love about Minneapolis

Walker Place is close to Lake Harriet and Uptown, which means you’ll still be close to the restaurants and outdoor activities you’ve come to know and love. Looking for organized events? Our team hosts a wide range of outdoor activities for our residents. For those who enjoy exploring the city on their own, the Grand Rounds are just a few blocks from your front door, making our location ideal for walkers, bikers, and anyone else who enjoys spending time on our city’s greenways.

Luxury senior living doesn’t have to come at a higher price tag

Worried about how much a luxury senior living community could cost? At Walker Place, we use an Entrance Deposit Model, which acts much like a house downpayment. By putting a deposit down on your apartment, you’ll see a decrease in your rent — especially compared to other retirement communities in the area. And the deposit is 100% refundable should you choose to move in the future.

Senior living that feels like home

Wherever you decide to retire, moving to your new senior living community should feel like coming home. Because we offer the care services you need as you age, many of our residents live with us long-term. That means that just like any community, your neighbors will stay your neighbors over the years.
