Select the type of senior living facility that meets your needs.
If you’re a self-reliant older adult with few medical problems, an independent living community may be right for you. You might also hear these communities referred to as senior apartments, retirement communities, or retirement homes.
Choose a private apartment with a full kitchen to call home.
Not all services are available at all locations. Your facility may offer:
If you aren’t able to live alone—but don’t require 24/7 skilled nursing care—our assisted living apartments may be the best choice for you.
Depending on your needs, you can request medication assistance, foot and wound care, extra cleaning, or help with daily activities.

Receive respect and high-quality care from our team. Build relationships with compassionate, supportive staff who get to know you. Expect us to treat you as a family member, friend, and neighbor.
Our independent and assisted living centers create communities—tight-knit neighborhoods of seniors who share similar interests and a strong sense of independence. Your Essentia senior living community allows you private space, yet companionship is always close by.
Join fellow residents for exercise programs, games, and group outings. Build friendships and a sense of belonging when you share coffee, experiences, memories, social events, and laughter with other residents.
When you move to an Essentia independent or assisted living center, you’ll change your address, but not your life. Rely on us to enable and encourage your connections with church, community organizations, and the activities you love to do.
When you need medical care, you can go to the Essentia hospital or clinic conveniently located next to your apartment. You’ll find therapy services, home care, dietitians, social services, and doctors to help you. If you’re homebound, your doctor may recommend rehabilitation services that can be provided in your apartment.
