About This Location

Making This Your Home

Located on the campus of CentraCare – St. Benedict's Community, St. Benedict’s Care Center strives to create a socially connected community with opportunities to challenge the mind, lift spirits, nurture and revitalize purpose. Our neighborhoods provide quality care in a compassionate, personalized manner, making you feel right at home. There are various types of services offered, depending on your needs.

Modern, comfortable living is achieved through tastefully furnished, spacious rooms and commons areas. Our attention to detail and desire to create a home-like atmosphere make the Care Center a pleasant place to live or stay. Although some furnishings are available in every room, residents are encouraged to bring their own furnishings and decorations to ensure a home-like environment.

Fireside lounges, enclosed porches and numerous sitting areas throughout the Care Center provide relaxing gathering spaces for families and friends to visit and still have some privacy.

Nurture your mind, body and spirit in one of our lovely gardens. Research shows that providing gardens can help move healing forward and for many of us the garden is our connection with nature. The nurturing sound of water trickles through Rosie’s Garden where you can sit in the gazebo and enjoy this tranquil, calming experience. Lillian’s Garden features raised flower beds for residents to care for, a beautiful fountain and wheelchair-accessible swing.

Browse the Gift Shop where you will find unique and inspiring gifts or stop by the Coffee Shop, located near the main entrance; providing a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy a meal with family or friends. It is open to employees and visitors as well. The Bonn Great Room is a large event space located on the main floor, across from the chapel. It is used frequently for large group activities, entertainment, seminars and social gatherings.

Our memory care staff have an affinity for this population and truly understand how important their role is in the treatment of this disease. Compassionate caregiving benefits your loved one on so many levels.

"Dementia does not rob someone of their dignity, it’s our reaction to them that does. Our purpose is to give our residents the highest quality of care, while honoring each individual past as a valued son, daughter, parent, coworker, community member and many other purposeful roles.” - Memory Care Staff

Our staff is specially trained, and the environment and programming are designed to enhance feelings of identity and security, utilizing music, socialization and familiar activities of daily living. The open environment promotes freedom within a secured setting.

Family members are valued and are included in the plan of care. Family members are encouraged to participate in the daily life and care of their loved one. Both the resident and family are treated as a single unit because our professional belief is that family involvement is a strong attribute of quality care. The family’s knowledge of their loved one is an important link in the plan of care.
