Three Links Purchases Land Adjacent to Millstream Commons Assisted Living

NORTHFIELD, MN (Nov. 18, 2019) —

Three Links has finalized the purchase of land located between Millstream Commons and the Village on the Cannon in downtown Northfield. Millstream Commons is an assisted living property owned by Three Links and led by Kathy Olson, Executive Director. The Village on the Cannon is a separate property of senior condominiums with no affiliation to Three Links.

The land purchased consists of 1.66 acres at 301 7th St. W. located to the west of Millstream Commons, and to the south of the Village on the Cannon. The land was previously privately owned by the “Friends of Villages on the Cannon” – an organization representing property owners at Village on the Cannon. “We are grateful for the collaboration of the Village on the Cannon Board of Directors and to the Friends of the Village on the Cannon for their support of this purchase and for the shared vision of this property. I credit Kathy Olson for strengthening these relationships over the years,” said Mark Anderson, CEO for Three Links.

Long term plans for the land are to connect Millstream Commons and the Village on the Cannon with approximately 60 independent living units and common areas. With this purchase, Three Links will be able to provide more services in downtown Northfield and allow seniors to age and thrive in place. The demand for senior housing with convenient, local amenities is great.

The timeline for this building project is yet to be determined.

Planning for Your Elder Years

2019-10-02 14:20:32 | 日記
If we were to ask an older person what his or her most important concerns for aging are, we would probably get a variety of different answers. According to surveys frequently conducted among the elderly, the most likely answers we would receive would include the following three principal concerns or life wishes:


1. Remaining independent in the home without intervention from others

2. Maintaining good health and receiving adequate health care

3. Having enough money for everyday needs and not outliving assets and income

To address these concerns and maintain the quality of life wanted in the elder years, it simply takes a little preplanning. Few people do this kind of planning. It is human nature not to worry about an event until it happens. We may prepare financially for unexpected financial disasters by covering our homes, automobiles and health with insurance policies. However, no other life event can be as devastating to an elderly person’s lifestyle, finances and security as needing long term care. It drastically alters or completely eliminates the three principal lifestyle wishes listed above. The majority of the American public does not plan for this crisis of needing eldercare. The lack of planning also has an adverse effect on the older person’s family, with sacrifices made in time, money, and family lifestyles. Because of changing demographics and potential changes in government funding, the current generation needs to plan for long term care before the elder years are upon them.

One of the important things for planning is how to maintain your lifestyle as you age. You may be healthy enough to stay in your own home with help provided for the following activities of daily living: maintaining a home, providing meals, supervision, companionship, transportation and shopping services. This type of care at home is non-medical and must be provided free of charge by family, friends, or volunteers or the care must be paid for out-of-pocket by the family. Government programs, in most cases, will not pay for this kind of care. It is estimated that 80% of all long term care is non-medical, with 90% of that care provided in the home. It is most likely that your long term care will begin with home care. It is wise to plan now how you will pay for care when it is needed. In evaluating your future income you may find it necessary to add some resources such as long term care Insurance to pay for assisted living or nursing home costs. Long term care insurance must be purchased while you are younger and healthy. Failing health, stroke or other aging issues will not allow you to qualify for this insurance.

Consider where you may want to live in your elder years. Many assisted living facilities offer complete care alternatives with a nursing home wing if needed. Senior retirement communities also offer many amenities with some including home care options.

Now is the time to do estate planning. A professional estate planner will give you direction on how best to protect your assets for future needs and for Medicaid planning. Do your paper work. Now is the time to create your trusts, will, medical directives in a living will and any other documents you want noted for future use. Gather insurance policies and bank records where they can be found by family members in case you are not able to get them yourself. We don’t like to think of our elder years in terms of health problems, but a sudden stroke, heart failure or onset of dementia could make it impossible to carry out our own wishes if preparation was not made ahead of time.

Clancy Dokmo recently joined us on a tour of our newly remodeled break room in the Care Center. After Clancy’s mother Dorothy was a resident in the Pathway’s area, he and his sister, Jane Landsuerk, wanted to give back to the employees who cared for their mother. They chose to have the employee break room updated which included new flooring, furniture and fresh paint on the walls. Wall colors were voted on by employees. Thank you Clancy and Jane for your generosity.

My Loved One Needs More Care: Longterm Care Options

2019-07-15 10:53:25 | 日記
My father’s parents, on the other hand, are ready for senior citizen assisted living now. My grandfather is in his early 80’s and my grandmother in her late 70’s. They both are weak and my grandmother has had several heart surgeries resulting from years of smoking. My grandfather has a terrible cough, probably emphysema, and is also very tired and ailing from his smoking. My grandparents only eat when their children remind them to and many times it’s just snack foods that are accessible. My grandfather has no dementia, but my grandmother is very forgetful which causes concern. All of these signs point to the need for senior care assistance.

So… my parents, aunts, and uncles have decided to look into senior assisted living facility options. They know that my grandparents should not live alone. They need steady meals and a clean environment. They also need protective oversight in case of falls or other emergencies. It is a difficult reality to face, but in order to ensure the best quality of life; our family knows that changes have to be made.

Whatever the scenario or situation, it is important for families to realize that there are elderly care housing options. Some in need may not be excited, in fact, they may down right refuse to make a change, but for the sake of health and safety it just needs to be done. Sometimes loved ones will go willingly, other times; it causes family feuds and eventual interventions.

It is never fun to force your loved ones to receive help and/or move into senior care homes, but when you see a need, it is important to act on it before it is too late. They may end up hurt or in a situation that requires more care than they (or you as a loved one) had originally planned.
