The Homestead at Rochester Senior Living Community

Awarded Confident Choices Designation

Rochester & ST. PAUL - Confident Choices For Senior Living, a program designed to improve quality in housing-with-services settings, increase public trust and inform consumer decision-making has awarded a designation to The Homestead at Rochester, 1900 Ballington Blvd NW, Rochester (corner of 55th Street NW & 18th Ave).

The Confident Choices program was designed by Aging Services of Minnesota, the state's largest association of professionals working in the area of older adult services. "In today's world, consumers can choose from a variety of options when they are exploring senior housing," said Mary Youle, the Vice President of Housing and Community Services for Aging Services of Minnesota. "This program will give consumers confidence they are indeed choosing the right community for themselves or their loved ones."

In order to receive this designation The Homestead at Rochester met certain core and elective requirements in the areas of ethical practice, management experience and training, customer satisfaction, resident information and communication, regulatory compliance, staff training and satisfaction, performance improvement, resident services, and more.  In addition, they successfully completed a site review by two trained housing professionals.

The requirements for Confident Choices have been developed by experienced housing-with-services providers and are based on standards of practice that truly influence the quality of a consumer's experience.

For over 40 years, Aging Services of Minnesota has earned its reputation as a leader in older adult services. The providers who are members of Aging Services represent the complete continuum of care, including care centers, assisted living, and senior housing with supportive services, independent senior housing and community-based services.
