COLUMBIA HEIGHTS, MN (JANUARY, 2015) – The Columbia Heights Sun Focus newspaper announced that the Lighthouse of Columbia Heights was recognized as the best assisted living community in the Columbia Heights/Fridley area in its annual Readers Choice survey.
“We’re thrilled to receive this award,” said Tammy Kucera, Regional Director of Operations for the Lighthouse Communities based in the Twin Cities. “And the fact we were chosen by the Sun Focus readers made it even more meaningful. I’m confident this recognition is the result of our corporate mission to put the resident first in everything we do. By partnering with some of the most respected authorities on aging in the country our team members are able to incorporate their findings in our 4 Pillars of Living Life on Purpose™, integrating Physical Fitness, Brain Fitness, Dining Experience, and Social/Spiritual Engagement. We are particularly proud that our Chef was instrumental in the development of the dining experience that was recognized with a “Best of the Best” award this year by the Assisted Living Federation of America” continued Kucera. “In addition, our Vivid Living™ approach to assisted living and our Betty’s Harbor Memory Care Neighborhoods incorporate Coordinators, Life Engagement Coaches & all Team Members to assist and mentor resident engagement in activities designed to exercise mental & physical abilities.
