From Our Community, Friends and Family


It’s the stories… The residents and staff have very interesting stories. How often do you meet a 1946 U of M cheerleader? Or the marketing secretary for the Minnesota Northstars? Or someone who grew up in Central Minnesota and is familiar with your mom’s family name? Or people who can’t wait to go to the myriad of educational activities offered here because there’s always something new to learn? Everyone here has a story, and at The Waters we all have the chance to hear them and learn from each other.

We lived in another city and state for 65 years before moving to Minneapolis to be near a daughter. She did some research and eventually chose The Waters on 50th as a place where she thought we would be happy – and oh boy, was she right! A wonderful group of residents welcomed us here with open arms, as a very friendly and competent staff helped pave the way for our smooth transition. Once settled, we quickly found activities to our liking, and especially enjoy exercise classes, and also the many interesting learning opportunities, – and oh yes, the enticing and well stocked library.

Moving from my home of 50 years into a Senior Living Community during a pandemic was challenging, but it was made so much easier by the caring staff at The Waters on 50th and their attention to the smallest details of our move-in. We were warmly welcomed by an exceptional staff and provided an excellent orientation to their services and activities. The residents, through their Resident Ambassador Program, were very helpful and informative. It was a really smooth transition for us. We love living here and are very happy with our choice.
