Care and support around the clock.
When you or your loved one receive care at our skilled nursing community in Alexandria, MN, you'll receive the 24-hour support and personal care you need. More than that, a variety of activities and visits from children from the on-site intergenerational child care center will help you thrive.
24/7 Skilled Care and Peace of Mind
You or your loved one are taken care of at any time of the day or night. Our skilled nursing staff are on-site 24-hours per day. Some things nurses help residents with include:
- Complex medication management, including IVs
- Diabetes management
- Incontinence and catheter care
- Colostomy care
- Daily living activities such as bathing, getting dressed or eating
You can rest assured knowing you, or your loved one, will receive the care you need to feel valued, comfortable and safe.
Each individual we serve is unique and deserves to thrive while doing the things they love. Because we get to know each of our residents as people (not just by name), our activities staff are able to design fun, interesting and engaging activities that residents not only enjoy but look forward to. We connect people with similar interests and if you’re interested in an activity we don’t offer, our staff will do their best to accommodate your requests.
No matter your physical or cognitive ability, you can participate in our activities. Some of which include:
- Arts and crafts
- Games and puzzles
- Reading – alone, in a group or reading to others
- Music - playing and listening
- Scenic drives and excursions
- Cooking and baking
- Bible study
- Worship services

Children in the Alexandria Area YMCA Child Care Center at the Knute Nelson Care Center visit residents for weekly activities. They also often walk through the nursing home singing or using the hallways as an extension of their classroom. The kids call residents of the Care Center their "grand buddies."
