Find Senior Living and Care Options

Making the right care decision for your loved one can be a daunting task filled with stress, tension and pressure. There are so many assisted living, memory care, nursing, and other care options available in Minneapolis Metro Area - the terminology is often unfamiliar. Senior Care Authority® will streamline the process to make it easier for you to make an informed decision.

Our national team of Senior Care Advisors spends countless hours inspecting locations, from mid-to-larger size communities as well as smaller, residential care homes, meeting the staff and reviewing state reports to advise you of any citations that may have been issued against a particular location.

A Senior Care Advisor will meet personally with you to discuss your options, accompany you on visits to locations and ensure that all your questions are answered. The hallmark of our service commitment is that we are by your side every step of the way. We would be happy to put you in contact with an advisor in your area who will provide you with expert advice on any of the assisted living locations listed in our directory of locations.

Get individualized assistance with your loved one

Sometimes our families just need more help with challenging transitions and decision-making. This may include facilitating essential conversations between family members, home care agency or caregiver selection, connections to valuable resources or regular visitations with a loved one providing "peace of mind" to family members when they are unable to visit themselves.

It can be comforting to have someone partner with you who is outside the emotional landscape of the family, doing research, talking to providers, organizing paperwork, or finding those "needle in a haystack" resources. A go-to person you can turn to when things get overwhelming. Whatever the need, we can customize our services for your family or provide you with vetted referral sources.

Meet Matt Johnson and Kathy Quinby-Johnson

Kathy and Matt have experienced the journey many of their clients are on. Kathy’s mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010. Along with her siblings, Kathy has supported her dad as he’s navigated caring for her mom, understanding long term care insurance benefits and seeking memory care. Matt was by his mother’s side while in hospice.

From her experiences, Kathy says, “For the uninitiated, it can be an overwhelming process to digest all the information about the resources and residences available, the types of care and services each does or doesn’t provide, the costs involved, and determining the best fit for their family member. It’s challenging to even know the questions to ask. That’s why we love coming alongside families going through this process. We hope to reduce their stress and offer expertise to help them evaluate the options as they make these important decisions for their loved one.”

Matt is a natural people person and a creative problem solver. From his many years of experience in residential real estate and development, he has fine-tuned his ability to consult with clients by carefully listening to their needs, desires and goals, then providing recommendations that address the key criteria they’ve defined. Matt explains why they chose Senior Care Authority: “It was important to us to find a franchisor that demonstrated excellence, integrity and expertise in the industry, and provided a true value to their clients.”

Kathy’s 30+ years in executive roles have helped her develop a strength in bringing order out of chaos, leading complex projects, multi-tasking and working with a wide range of people. A life-long resident of the Twin Cities, Matt grew up in Minneapolis. Kathy is from Iowa, but has called the Twin Cities home for nearly 30 years. They have two daughters and live Eden Prairie. Both active volunteers in their church, at their children’s school and extra-curricular activities.
