The Rosemount senior living to have open house Feb. 18

The Rosemount, a new senior living facility, will have an open house 2-6 p.m. Feb. 18 to celebrate its grand opening.

The site is billed as a life-enrichment community with an environment created around building connections within and outside its walls. It aims to provide a family atmosphere and expert staff in an effort to make residents feel welcomed, engaged and supported.

Connected to the city-owned Steeple Center, The Rosemount is located near shops, schools, the Robert Trail Library and other cultural attractions. The Rosemount offers a variety of independent and assisted living options, memory care, rehabilitation, care suites and respite care. Registered nurses are available on site or on call 24/7.

The Rosemount aims to create an environment that connects residents to each other through its fitness room and classes, beauty salon, lounge area, outdoor spaces, children’s play area, multipurpose event room and onsite library.

It will offer anytime dining with a focus on healthy meals and farm-fresh ingredients.

“I grew up in a Wisconsin farm family where we grew our own food,” said executive chef Shaun Hamel, who previously was a chef at The Pines in Richfield. “I was taught at a young age how to cook and I am honored to be bringing my experiences to my new family at The Rosemount.”

Director of housing Bill Peters, who has experience as a licensed administrator and more than 20 years of retail sales management, said that open dining is one of many details that enhance residents’ lifestyles, including the availability of generator outlets in each room in case of power outages, heated parking ramps and increased fire-safety standards. The Rosemount also offers a van dedicated to transporting residents for errands, appointments and entertainment.

“By creating a building located in a bustling, multi-generational environment in downtown Rosemount, The Rosemount can offer a full, rich lifestyle to residents,” said The Rosemount’s developer and owner of the Makado Group Mark Appelbaum.

He said The Makado Group selected Augustana Care to provide care service because “it is open to innovative ways to provide individually-tailored care and support, and a focus on celebrating residents’ capabilities and successes.”

The Rosemount is located at 14344 Cameo Ave.
