Knute Nelson exceeded my expectations. The doctor predicted I'd be here for 2-3 weeks and I left after 10 days because I'd already reached all of my goals. When I went home, I was able to do nearly everything on my own. My room was like a high end hotel, and whenever I had guests we were able to enjoy the courtyard and all of the beautiful flowers.

While circumstances had me moving from my home state of Kansas to my new state of Minnesota, I had anxiety about what to expect. After moving into the Gables I had all of my concerns of starting a new life answered. With the kindness and help of the staff, I settled into a comfortable life style. I like to have a feeling of independence and the Gables provides that. But also knowing that help is there at all times is what I call a bonus! I have peace of mind and I found a wonderful home!

This is a wonderful place. I don’t think there is a better place than this. Staff are all very friendly and act in a professional manner. Staff are very prompt with providing me the services I need. If you have to be in a rehab place, this is the ideal place. I am thoroughly impressed; I cannot say enough good things. My husband was a patient here for 2 months with a terminal illness and even then I thought the same of Knute as I do now.

The Knute Nelson Therapy staff were very professional and well trained. Every day they encouraged me to do my best by showing me the goals we would work to achieve. I especially enjoyed that they would monitor my progress to show that I was improving each day; this was encouraging to see and helped me continue to work hard. The staff was very hands on and they take an interest in their patients. I feel like their old friends.

When my husband’s mother and my mother were residents at Knute Nelson, they so valued changes to their routine days.  Visitors, activities, and “touches” from staff and volunteers enriched their lives and reminded them that they were God’s children and worthy of his love and care. 

Now as a volunteer, I get so much more than I give.  I’m so grateful as a “newly” retired person to have the time to give to residents as they share with me happy and sad memories of their lives.  I’m learning from them to slow down and spend time listening.  I hope a shared laugh, smile, and fun activities we do in Wellness will improve their quality of life.  I know they do mine.

I was so impressed with Knute Nelson! We knew that Knute Nelson was going to be the best choice for our parents care. Whether it be home care, rehab, or long term care- we knew Knute Nelson could offer everything they needed from here on out. We look forward to working with the Home Care team and have nothing but good things to say!

I fell in love with Nelson Gables. I get to go to exercise classes, activities, and can interact with all the different groups of Christians. Living here is like living at Disneyland, living at the Ritz. If you’re going to have to grow old, you may as well do it here.
