I feel that my dad had a great start for his care. The staff were helpful and accommodating to the needs for Dad. The community is a clean place. My dad likes the food provided. It was a good experience

Monarch Meadows is going good. It is still so new. It is an adjustment period right now. So far everything is good. The staff is very cooperative when I talk to them. If there is anything I need to change they are willing to try it.

A group of five sibling children toured four options in the Mankato area for a new residence for a parent, a lifelong resident of Mankato/North Mankato area and we selected Monarch Meadows. We selected Monarch Meadows with consideration for: the friendliness, clean facility, welcoming dining areas, piano, activities including: exercise, movies and church services along with the possible future needs of staff and medical assistance. Our family member moved in in November and was immediately greeted and encouraged to join other residents for dining and activities. MM staff is friendly, helpful and considerate. We are very pleased with Monarch Meadows and our beloved family member resident is thrilled with her new surroundings.
Very good for basic assisted living needsreviewed on: 06/20/2016 by Anonymous
At first glance, Monarch Meadows has everything that a senior would need to make that next step into assisted living from independent living. However, if your loved one needs their highest level of care or has any medical conditions that need to be managed, I would recommend considering another option. I found that the the care (assistance) that their facility can provide and coordination of the home health care that they contract with often gets mismanaged or important details get overlooked. They are very willing to remedy the situation when issues are brought up which is great, but this type of system also allows (in my opinion) too much opportunity for the residents to refuse assistance/care. I think something that could tremendously improve this would be for any resident that is in a care suite (highest level of care) to be on a schedule of cares vs. giving an option for refusal. I know with my dad he will refuse the cares most times but if it presented as "this is what we are doing today" he is accepting. When you are dealing with individuals that do not have the capacity to properly judge when they need help, having an system where they can refuse care, yet are paying for that care is not an ideal situation. Overall I do think they are a good facility, they just happened to not be the best fit for our family.
It was a good experience..reviewed on: 07/08/2015 by Anonymous
It was a good experience. They had the type of nursing that he needed. My husband was very pleased with the atmosphere. He was surprised that it didn't look like a nursing home at all. I would consider the Monarch Meadows again if we needed hospice care. The location was a great distance from us, but that's a small matter. I would recommend the Monarch Meadows to anyone.
