At Cherrywood Pointe, assisted living is all about living life to the fullest. When you or a family member are thinking about assisted living, it’s important to understand what to expect from the home you choose. Cherrywood Pointe prides itself on providing an assisted living experience that combines home comforts with a care team that’s available at all times to tend to our residents’ health concerns.

Cherrywood Pointe assisted living residents enjoy services customized to match their unique needs. While some residents are able to maintain some level of independence in daily life, others require closer attention from our caring staff. No matter the circumstances, one fact remains the same — the quality of life at our assisted living facilities is high, and our residents enjoy outstanding amenities, locations and care. Learn what makes our assisted living options special.

Locations Worth Exploring

Just outside the doors of every Cherrywood Pointe lies scenic natural beauty. Many of our residents enjoy going for short walks (with or without the assistance from our staff) to take in the sights nearby. Whether taking a stroll on the Hardwood Creek Trail near our Forest Lake location, enjoying a lakeside breeze from Langton Lake near our Roseville on Cleveland location or bird watching along the trails near our Minnetonka community, there’s always somewhere new worth checking out.

While the sights around our locations provide opportunities for exploration and relaxation, some residents face health limitations that make mobility more difficult. Cherrywood Pointe offers transportation for those who want to get around town, but need some assistance. Our community vans make regular trips to local stores and scheduled group outings to restaurants, so catching a ride to somewhere interesting is always an option. Plus, our transportation loop can help residents get to appointments when needed.

On-Call Care

Every Cherrywood Pointe location is staffed with a full-time RN along with a team of caregivers who understand the unique needs of the residents they serve. If a resident requires health assistance on a daily basis, our staff has the resources and expertise to prioritize his or her wellbeing. Our goal is to give every resident the customized level of care they need while helping them maintain their independence as much as possible.

Depending on a resident’s needs, assisted living care may include:

  • In-room dining for those who want it
  • Weekly housekeeping and laundry
  • Medication management
  • Dressing/bathing/hygiene assistance

Assisted living residents at Cherrywood Pointe also have access to:

  • Visiting physicians, technicians and therapists
  • Physical, speech and occupational therapy
  • On-site x-rays and labs

As the name implies, assisted living provides helpful care that doesn’t get in the way of an otherwise independent lifestyle. It’s an ideal choice when you or a loved one are not facing memory-related health issues that require continual medical attention and care throughout a day. Potential residents with moderate to severe memory-related conditions can still make Cherrywood Pointe their home but are better suited for our Memory Care lifestyle option.

The Comforts of Home
