U.S. News & World Report Spotlight: New Perspective in Waconia, MN

We’re continuing to recognize ten New Perspective locations across Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois named to U.S. News and World Report’s 2022 list of the nation’s best senior living communities. This award embodies the important work of everyone at these locations and our caring staff companywide who put our residents first daily. In this blog, we would like to introduce you to our New Perspective community in Waconia, MN.

When you read through the resident comments U.S. News and World Report included on their profile about this community, it’s clear that staff play an important role in the lives of residents. We’re not surprised by that because we intentionally seek out caring, knowledgeable people who love working with older adults. One comment that resonated with us was from a resident who said, “They really make me feel wanted here. We are like one big happy family.” That’s exactly the environment we strive to create as we help older adults Live Life on Purpose®.

One of the friendly staff members our residents know is Troy Benedict who oversees the culinary work at this community. He brings years of food-related experience to his role and is the person behind the delicious meals residents enjoy. Be sure to say hi to Troy if you’re stopping in for a tour!

A beloved amenity at this community is the warm water pool. It is perfect for therapies or recreational swimming, and residents especially love it during those cold Minnesota winters!

Aside from the senior living community itself, Waconia is a wonderful place to call home. The hospital is right across the street from New Perspective for easy healthcare access. You’re close enough to the Twin Cities to take advantage of big-city amenities but far enough away to get that small-town feel. Restaurants, shopping and recreational activities make it easy to stay active and have fun without leaving town!
