Benedictine Steeple Pointe is not extremely large, and it has independent living as well as assisted living. We looked at two different rooms, and they were both very clean. It looks like it's very well taken care of. For someone like my father-in-law, the sizes of the units are about right. So we looked at a 1-bedroom and then a 1-bedroom plus, which had an area that could be sectioned off from the living room by a slider. And the 1-bedroom I think would be a very good size for him. It had enough room without being too much to take care of, I think.
The independent living area can also have assisted living services in the same unit. We only met one staff person, and then the second one very briefly. But they seemed really knowledgeable; they knew what the services they could offer were and what some of the other options for services would be. It's a Benedictine, so it's affiliated with the Catholic church. So they have some religious services as well as things like bingo and coffee and cookie time, and I think they have some time for crafts, too. So I know they have activities almost every day.
I think one of the strong points for us is that it's right there in the city of Osseo, and it's probably a block or two to the community center and public library. There's a park right there. So in addition to being a nice facility, it's also located where seniors could go outside. People who are mobile can be in the community, as opposed to other places we looked at, which are really more in residential neighborhoods.
