Maintaining a home is a big commitment. But what if you could give up the hassle of owning a house without sacrificing anything else?
Walker Place is located in the East Harriet neighborhood of Minneapolis near Uptown and the Chain of Lakes. When you move into a high-rise apartment in our premier senior community, you keep all that’s familiar with urban living, but you can let go of the stress that comes with owning a house — while gaining the comfort of knowing that as you age, care services are immediately available to you.
Moving doesn’t mean giving up your routine
If you live in South Minneapolis, you’ve probably enjoyed a walk around Lake Harriet, sat in the Rose Garden, or seen a play at the Jungle Theater.
Residents of Walker Place enjoy all of these activities because of the quick and easy access to all of your favorite Minneapolis activities — and we’ll even help you coordinate the transportation you need to get there.
You don’t need to uproot your life when you retire. When you make the short move over to Walker Place, your grocery store stays the same, your friends and activities are still nearby, and a lot of doors open to let you live your best life — free from day-to-day hassles and chores.
Senior living is for the young at heart
After retirement, many people choose to downsize and move out of the homes where they raised children. This often means moving into an apartment or condo, only to move again in a few years when assistance and health care needs change.
At Walker Place, you can move once and add care services as you age. That means that instead of packing your boxes and moving to another area, you can keep your apartment, your neighbors, and your sense of community, even as your care needs change.
Stay close to family and friends
We know that family is important to you. That’s why we make it easy for your loved ones to visit and enjoy all of the activities you enjoy doing as a group. We even offer a state-of-the-art fitness center that is open to the public, meaning your children, grandchildren, and friends who don’t live at Walker Place may even join you.
Customize your apartment
We believe that your apartment should be as unique as you. We allow our residents to customize their apartments to meet their unique standards. We will work with you to help you make this space your own. This is a truly unique option that you won’t find at many other communities.
Send your compliments to the chef
While every apartment at Walker Place has its own full kitchen, we also have a chef on staff to cook you three full meals a day in our dining room. It’s just another way we remove the hassle of the everyday for our residents.
Get to know your neighbor
In many senior living communities, the person living in the apartment next to yours will change every few years. But our residents invest in their apartment and can stay regardless of their care needs — meaning they stay with us for decades. It’s just one of the many ways our community feels more like home than many others in the area.
Our residents are a uniquely diverse group of individuals, ranging from retired architects and doctors to mayors and pastors. There’s never a shortage of interesting people to talk to or go on a walk with around the lakes.
