Our 55+ Senior Living Residences feature warm décor in a neighborhood setting on our beautiful campuses
Choosing a senior living community means sorting through numerous options to find the right balance between independence, facilities, and amenities. The right Highland area senior citizen housing community should be comfortable, affordable, and well-suited to each senior’s needs. To find that perfect place, seniors and their loved ones should expect to do a bit of research and find the answers to their questions.
There are many different choices when it comes to Highland area senior living. Some seniors are looking for assisted living, with staff ready to help with daily needs. Others are seeking vibrant retirement communities, with the opportunity to socialize and enjoy the neighborhood. At Sholom, we offer all of this and more.
Assisted living at Sholom includes private apartment homes, utilities, scheduled transportation, 24-hour emergency response, laundry facilities, and regular events and activities. Additional services are easy to add on an as-needed basis, including guest rooms for visitors, short-term rehabilitation, and housekeeping or laundry assistance.
All of our assisted living spaces offer 24/7 licensed staffing and emergency call systems, and catered living services including housekeeping and laundry. Sholom ensures individualized 24-hour home care services.
Our memory care programs are part of assisted living, and we also offer individualized care in a skilled nursing environment. Residents in the program enjoy comfortable, supportive living with a controlled access secured outdoor space, and a staff dedicated to personal care including escorts, cueing, and redirection.
We also offer long term care, with an array of long term medical and rehabilitative therapies for seniors. This is ideal for seniors with health challenges, or those who need physical assistance with mobility, daily living, and social activities.
It is common for seniors’ needs to change as they age. Ideally, a Highland area senior living community should meet the changing needs of residents with ease. For example, a community that has special care units alongside independent apartments offers a continuum of care if needed. Our campus buildings are physically connected as well with indoor walkways, so residents with changing levels of care will be accessing services in a familiar setting.
Regardless of care levels for residents, senior residences need to have safety measures in place. Families should make this a part of their research when looking for Highland senior living apartments.

Many families look at the large picture of the entire senior community, which is of course important. However, equal attention should be paid to the individual residences in which seniors will live. The floor plans, amenities, and location of these residences will impact the resident’s everyday lives.
For example, seniors with pets will want to find a residence that allows animals. In fact, even if a senior does not have a pet, this might still be a policy to consider for the future. There are many benefits of pets for seniors, which is why our residences at Sholom are pet-friendly.
In our Highland area senior living communities, residents will likely interact with the staff quite a bit. Staff must be well-trained, with key qualifications. Families and seniors should inquire about staff training and certifications, including if and when medications can be administered by staff.
Our team will also be compassionate and understanding of the unique needs of seniors. As seniors rely on their community staff, staff should respond with a genuine desire to help. Our multilingual staff are dedicated to the health, safety, and overall well-being of our residents.
When choosing a Highland area retirement community or assisted living facility it is also important to ask about the staff to resident ratio. This is particularly important for residents who will rely on staff for care and safety. The number of staff members should be sufficient to provide the right level of care.
Unfortunately, seniors often face isolation and loneliness, but our Highland area 55 and over senior living community has built-in activities and shared mealtimes that can ensure their quality of life is maintained. Seniors should have access to programs and activities that meet their physical, spiritual, and social needs.
Sholom’s community is warm, inviting, and social. Residents enjoy features that include family and group spaces, outdoor areas, on-site fitness centers and salons/barbershops, and many activities, classes, and events. In the Highland area, 55 plus senior living should be easy on residents. At Sholom, we make sure we are.
In some of our Highland area senior living facilities, there are on-site delis, therapy pools, and even outdoor rooftop patios. Mealtimes, and food itself, are also key. Seniors should be happy with the food provided through their facility. After all, nobody wants to be stuck eating things that they would not choose for themselves.
Find out how many meals are provided per day, and what the options are for tailoring meals to residents’ needs, restrictions, and requests. At Sholom, we offer delicious kosher catering to our residents, meeting spiritual needs as well as ensuring every meal is as tasty as possible. Meals range from breakfast buffets for our independent residents, to a full menu including snacks for those requiring a higher level of care.
Our mission and values are summed up in three words: care, compassion, and community. We are proud to support adults across the continuum of care, with more than 100 years of service. Sholom is home to many Highland area seniors, and would be a great spot for your own senior living needs.
We would like to help you find your place with Sholom in the Twin Cities. To learn more, schedule a tour or contact one of our campuses. We look forward to hearing from you.
Just wanted to drop you a note, and, again thank you for everything you & your staff do for my mom. Nothing you guys do ever goes un-noticed. When a person lives to be old, like my mom, many challenges occur, almost daily, and that’s just the way things seem to go. It’s not easy on you guys, and, also on us. But, we’re grateful that God has granted her many years, and along with my family, we just try & smother her with love and attention each & everyday, just like you guys. Anyway, in a world where many times people only hear complaints, I just want to be the opposite, and tell you how grateful we are to everyone at The Sholom Home. Wishing you & your family a wonderful, safe Holiday Weekend.
