Innovative New Senior Living Campus Opened in 2013

Our $35 million dollar senior housing construction project, over a decade in the making, faced many obstacles, including a shaky economy. But in early 2013, the community of Anoka, MN celebrated the official opening of The Homestead at Anoka, a senior living campus which is part of Volunteers of America's redefined vision of senior services.
The way The Homestead at Anoka is designed, residents are able to transition through a variety of types of housing. “The concept of this building is to create households,” said Skip Sorenson of Pope Architects, the firm which designed The Homestead at Anoka. “As the residents age in place and need more services they can be transferred to different areas of care.” Additionally, the impressive architecture and design of The Homestead was inspired by the character and history of nearby beautiful buildings and residential neighborhoods.

The campus features 127 skilled nursing beds including transitional care, secured memory care and a rehab clinic as well as 27 independent living units with heated underground parking and 32 assisted living units. The campus’ town square feature a club room, general store, hairstyling salon, private dining room and community room.

At The Homestead at Anoka, seniors can take comfort in knowing their needs can be met today and tomorrow, through an array of thoughtfully planned living choices.
