A home care staff member is on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also offer a variety of activities and outings for people who want to participate. The Residence is connected to long-term and transitional care, Therapy services and our beautiful interfaith chapel via enclosed walkway.
Renovating for Community Need
Cerenity has a long-standing tradition of enhancing services and facility accommodations to meet the needs of the senior community they serve. Following the 2014 major addition of the Transitional Care Unit and the chapel, Cerenity turned its focus to making improvements to the Assisted Living Residence. The Residence common spaces- main dining room, fireplace lounge and game room, laundry room and main lobby- have been renovated to reflect a more contemporary aesthetic while providing a comfortable home-like environment.
During the Summer of 2020 Cerenity began interior renovations for its 43 Assisted Living apartments with the primary goal of improving wheelchair and walker accessibility. When each unit is complete, apartments will feature wider doorways, enlarged bathrooms, new kitchen cabinetry, flooring and contemporary lighting. Our goal is to renovate 10-15 apartments per year, over a 3 year renovation plan.

There is no place I would rather be than here for care and OT/PT therapies. I am impressed with how every staff has the same goal- help me gain back my independence! I have met so many great people while I’ve been here. Thank you, Cerenity- White Bear Lake!”
