Plaza Stories & Testimonials

Making memories and getting feedback from our residents and their families always touches our hearts. Below are some of our favorite Plaza messages.


“It didn’t take me long to know Plaza was where I wanted to move my father-in-law.”

When my husband and I realized we needed to move Jerry, my father-in-law, closer to us, we looked for a place where services could be added as his needs changed.

During my tour of Walker Methodist Plaza, I met several residents and I liked how the team set up a meeting for my father-in-law to get acquainted with a gentleman who, like him, was a war veteran. I also saw a schedule of all the great daily activities and the lunch and dinner menus. I knew this was the kind of place that I wanted for Jerry.

Once we decided on Plaza, the team was so helpful and informative in the moving process. I really appreciated all the suggestions that were made and things that were done to help make the transition as easy as possible for my father-in-law. There were even box lunches provided for all of us on moving day and welcome gifts in the apartment!

Over the years, I’ve come to believe the team truly cares about each and every resident. They don’t just do their job — they do whatever is needed or asked of them. More and more, I am reassured that we made the right decision in choosing Plaza. What a relief it is for me!

“This is the perfect place.”

Marge enjoys an active life, so when the time came to give up driving she wanted to find a centrally located home. Walker Methodist Plaza was the perfect fit. “I chose Plaza because of its great location. I love being in downtown Anoka.” Now Marge is able to walk around town or ride the bus and get all the stimulation she needs.

But Marge also likes to stay home. Her apartment is filled with lush plants and overlooks the beautiful terrace where her daughter plants flowers each summer. Marge likes to take part in activities at Plaza — she particularly loves music — and appreciates that there is never any pressure to participate. “If you don’t feel like it, you don’t have to.”

Mealtime is Marge’s social time with her group of close friends who look out for each other. “The food is good, too.” When asked what she thinks of Plaza she states, “I like it. It’s home. Plaza is the perfect place. They leave you alone unless you need help, and then they are right there.”
