What to Consider About Assisted Living in Golden Valley

Bordered by the Theodore Wirth Regional Park and Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden, Golden Valley provides seniors looking to reside in the city with many walking trails and public outdoor spaces.

There are six assisted living facilities within Golden Valley and more than 60 in the surrounding towns to provide care for citizens who struggle with daily tasks.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Golden Valley
