My elderly parents and I really enjoyed our tour through the Thorne Crest Senior Living Community in Albert Lea. The facility had many amenities that we were looking for and we were pleased with the nice accommodations and programs provided to the community. Catherine Buboltz, the Director of Marketing, guided us through the facility and provided us with lots of information and we appreciated her professionalism and guidance. 

Business response:

Margaret, thank you for visiting our community. We appreciate your comments and are glad that you had a positive experience. We hope to have the opportunity to serve your parents and your family in the future.

Thornecrest is a “community “ working together to make a smooth transition. We learned of all the ways they offer to help the people living there stay active! We are excited about weekly visits to areas of the community, for example to Helmer Myre or farmers market! And exercise classes on site! Catherine Buboltz was so helpful , patient, kind and accommodating and made our experience moving in so much better than we ever imagined! Thank you Catherine! We met other staff in housekeeping and maintenance who were so friend... read more

The Thorne Crest is so friendly and accommodating. My Mom chose TC on her own from the good things she heard from others. At almost 95 years old, this is her first experience with having help readily available and it may take time for her to adjust. So far, so good! Catherine Buboltz was so helpful in getting us through the maze of steps needed to get Mom moved in. Highly recommend Thorne Crest!

Hi, Maryann. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive experience. We appreciate the opportunity to serve your mom and your family.

The experience enrolling Mom into Thorne Crest was very positive and rewarding. It took longer than expected, but her apartment was completely renovated and the delay was due to the construction process. We thought we could customize the apartment more according to Mom's individual tastes (i.e., carpet and countertop colors), but there were pretty strict guidelines we needed to follow, to keep Mom's apartment within the Thorne Crest standard. Still, the outcome of her completed apartment exceeded our expectations and Mom w... read more

Business response:

Hi, Cyan. Thanks for sharing your positive experience! We appreciated your families patience as we worked through the challenges of construction and are glad your mom is thrilled with the outcome. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your mom and your family.

Great communication between staff. Questions or issues have been dealt with timely. So far, it sees my parents are being well taken care of. One confusing thing though is an independent 2nd person in the assisted living apartment should have the same breakfast as the assisted living spouse. 

Business response:

Hi, Diane. Thanks much for your feedback and positive comments. I'm sorry for the confusion regarding breakfast options when a spouse is considered independent in an assisted living apartment. We are able to provide the same hot breakfast, as is available for the assisted living resident, we would just add a nominal fee. Please contact Catherine at 507.369.6929 if you would like to make any changes to the meal plans or if you have any concerns or questions. We are always happy to help. Thank you again for your comments.
