Confident Choices Communities Recognized at Senior Living NOW
July 30, 2014 by Barbara Landeen, Aging Services of Minnesota Advantage
Twenty-two communities were recognized at last week’s Senior Living NOW for having earned or renewed the Confident Choices for Senior Living quality designation in the last year.
Confident Choices is an innovative and nation-leading quality designation program, the first of its kind to evaluate and recognize senior living providers in Minnesota that exceed expectations to deliver the highest in quality residential services for older adults. Since its introduction in 2008, more than 70 communities have earned the seal.
Confident Choices, which received an Award of Excellence in 2013 from the Midwest Society of Association Executives (MSAE), serves as a valuable consumer tool to help navigate the marketplace of senior housing and assisted living. Its seal reflects higher standards of quality, ethical conduct, consumer satisfaction, innovation, creativity and professional excellence. Applicants are subject to an independent third party site review before being approved and must renew the designation every two years.

This year’s event — “Christmas Carols” — is set for Friday, November 21st at the Oak Ridge Hotel and Conference Center.
The gala will again include a display of gorgeous trees, each professionally designed and decorated; fabulous auctions; a delicious dinner followed by desserts; lots of fun and plenty of time to meet and greet your friends. Our unforgettable holiday experience for each and every guest — one to which they will look forward each year.
Our goals for the Festival are to expand community awareness and to reach our funding goal of $50,000. Funds raised this year will again be used for the Life Enhancement Fund for projects and experiences that support our residents’ physical and mental health through active, engaged lifestyles. With your help, this will again not only be a successful fundraiser but THE event of the season.
We would like to thank Yetzer’s Home Furnishings for once again being our lead sponsor for the Festival of Trees 2014.
