Northstar’s approach to human resources management seeks to develop, train, and inspire associates to go the extra mile, to exceed resident expectations, and to deliver services as if it were their own mother, father, or relative receiving the care. Our culture of taking care of associates results in high satisfaction, high retention and high quality of care for residents.

The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) defines assisted living as a senior living option that combines housing, support services and health care, as needed. Assisted living is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management or assistance, bathing, dressing and transportation. Some residents may have memory disorders including Alzheimer’s, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges. Residents are assessed upon move in, or any time there is a change in condition. The assessment is used to develop an Individualized Service Plan.
Residents of Northstar Senior Living communities have individualized care plans providing customized services based upon their needs. The following are examples of the services and amenities which are typically provided at our assisted living communities:
At Northstar Senior Living, we encourage resident’s independence through a coordinated and planned effort between families, associates, and physicians. Our residents can expect a thorough assessment to be completed prior to moving into a Northstar Senior Living Community to ensure a seamless care transition.

Our Memory Care centers are comfortable and homelike. At the heart of the Northstar Senior Living approach is our emphasis on the dignity of each memory care resident. Our staff looks for opportunities to help residents succeed at familiar tasks, whether it is making their bed or baking a sheet of cookies. These activities give residents the opportunity to experience the satisfaction of a job well done, yet a helping hand is always nearby.
Northstar consults extensively with family members to develop familiar and comforting activities for each Memory Care resident that reflect the routines they have established over a lifetime. We place a premium on involving our residents’ family members in their care. We frequently communicate with family members and encourage their participation in all aspects of life.
