Champlin is one of Minneapolis's northern suburbs that puts seniors in proximity to several parks and attractions such as the Ellingson Car Museum.

While assisted living facilities in Champlin are known by that name, Minnesota doesn't have an exclusive license that covers assisted living services.

The state also conducts surprise inspections on assisted living facilities to ensure residents have a safe place to call home.
