New Independent Living For Seniors Planned In Northeast Minneapolis

Adults aged 62 and older in the real estate market for independent living will soon have another option in Northeast Minneapolis. Catholic Eldercare has announced a new, 65-unit apartment building in the St. Anthony neighborhood, with the groundbreaking planned for August 2017. 

“This area has been sorely lacking in an independent senior living option that will provide the necessary services and supports needed by adults as we age,” CEO and President Dan Johnson said in a statement picked up by the Journal. “It will allow current residents of Northeast and others the opportunity to age in community, while expanding Catholic Eldercare’s continuum of care.” 

“Our message to seniors looking for housing is that if your needs change, we can respond without your having to necessarily move to a new community,” said Johnson. 

The senior living building won’t be far from Catholic Eldercare’s Northeast Minneapolis campus, which is being renamed after co-founder (and former Minneapolis mayor, the first Catholic to hold this post) Al Hofstede. Hofstede passed away at the age of 75 last fall.
