Though 2020 was an unexpected year for team members and residents alike, the community has been supportive and caring. Marlys, one of the first residents to move in on opening day, shared about her experience: “The team members look after their people and are very proactive. Because they have good communication, we’re always informed. Even during the pandemic, team members came to the door often. They brought ice cream, they dressed up—the maintenance man even became a disc jockey. It’s been wonderful.”

Lola Amendt, executive director, described the past year at Havenwood of Burnsville as a rare opportunity. “In our first year, we’ve seen amazing examples of caring and supporting one another,” she said. “Together, our Havenwood family has formed a special community full of love and friendship.”
Team members have work tirelessly to offer residents opportunities to connect, engage, and stay active—and to keep them safe. As they take on new responsibilities and serve sacrificially, residents have also gone above and beyond to support their neighbors. Though 2020 has caused some methods to be adapted, Havenwood of Burnsville still offers a vibrant lifestyle with social, physical, and spiritual programs, plus stylish housing and excellent healthcare.
Resident Norm, who has lived at Havenwood of Burnsville from the beginning, appreciates all his community offers, even in challenging times. “The team members are outstanding, and our neighbors are friendly. Kids can even visit in the playground outside. Of course, it’s a little different during COVID-19, but we’re glad we’re here and we love our apartment. We’re even getting our COVID-19 vaccines at Havenwood.”
