“I’ve been less stressed about my safety, which means I sleep better” – Sara

Sara recalls her experience at Prospect Park senior living during the pandemic saying she’s been extremely impressed with Pillars and how the staff treats COVID. Sara shares, “There are notices and hand sanitizers throughout the building. The staff wears masks and shields. People who are coming in have to be screened and are reminded about what they need to do to be safe. We get a lot of good communication about what’s happening here. We don’t have to walk around wondering, ‘What’s going on?’ We can relax a bit. The staff here has been a big part of making me feel safe and cared about, which I never imagined really would be part of the experience, but it’s been a very important part: that I feel cared about.”

“Senior living means I can stay active” – Fred

For Fred, being close to the University of Minnesota campus and convenient Minneapolis trails is very important for a vibrant lifestyle. He expresses that “the thing I love most about The Pillars of Prospect Park is the location. I was on the faculty for over 35 years at the University of Minnesota so I’m very familiar with the area and love being able to still visit. With the convenient location of The Pillars of Prospect Park, I can continue to get my exercise by enjoying my frequent runs and walks to and around campus. This allows me to maintain my physical well-being – that’s a major plus. The Green Line is also a major plus for me, as it opens up the opportunity for me to travel between St. Paul and Minneapolis so easily.”

“It isn’t a senior building with just people over the age of 55” – Barb

As someone who has worked with children her whole life, Barb loves the senior living’s intergenerational programs and being a ‘grandfriend’ and mentor. As Barb reveals, “As ‘grandfriends’, we have the opportunity to work with the young children at The Pillars Child Care. I love reading books and doing finger plays with them, things that I did for so long and it feels comfortable to do. I love seeing their faces. Just watching them and the energy that they have. We can look down from our apartment and watch the children playing. It keeps us young.”

“The pillars of prospect park feels like family” – JP

JP wanted to find a place and community to call home even after being away from the Minneapolis and St. Paul area for years. We are so happy JP found her way back! “I absolutely love the staff here at The Pillars of Prospect Park. They have far exceeded my expectations. I really don’t know how so many talented people were grouped in one place and are so motivated to help older people enjoy their life. I was concerned when I came back to the Twin Cities after an absence of 50 years that I would not find the level of activity I had in New York City and Las Vegas. But I found a very different level of contentment. I fit right in. I feel like I’m part of a family.”

“We are pretty spoiled here” – Julie & Sandy

Julie and Sandy wanted an active senior living community near the University of Minnesota and Minneapolis. At the Pillars of Prospect Park, they found a like-minded community with a calendar full of activities. “What we love most is the entertainment! We’ve had a live concert every week since we’ve moved here. There’s yoga, balance classes, and Sunday afternoon movies to name a few. There’s so much to do! We like the fact that we can be really independent, and if we don’t feel like going to something, we don’t have to go. We are definitely spoiled by the staff here, the amenities, and the location. It’s just been really great!”
