The Kenwood is a wonderful place. Everyone is so friendly, both the staff and the residents. You couldnt ask for nicer people. Moms seventh-floor apartment has lots of windows and light, and room for everything she wanted to bring with her when she moved in two years ago, including her piano. Its an easy walk to the Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden and an even easier walk to a beautiful neighborhood park a block away. They have a very nice dining room in the building that serves good food, where I occasionally joined Mom for meals pre-Covid. During the last year and a half, the staff at the Kenwood has kept all the residents safe, and I truly appreciate that. I am so grateful for that. But I very much hope Mom never has to go through another round of extreme isolation again. The people who live at the Kenwood are an independent, energetic, accomplished group, who engage with life and the community. And they, together with the equally wonderful and accomplished people who work there, make it the good place to live that it is. Highly recommend.

My mother lives here and you couldnt ask for a better senior community. The staff is wonderful. The protections they put in place and enforced during Covid resulted in zero (0) residents contracting the virus. Zero. They are constantly evaluating and looking for better processes and outcomes for the residents. A gem of a place.

My parents left their home of 62 years and crossed state lines—during Covid, post Floyd uprising—to live at The Kenwood. Though nothing about the timing of their arrival was ideal, they have settled in beautifully. The friendly and helpful Kenwood staff have made them feel welcome and invigorated, and they are getting to know others as social activities spring back to life. My folks are joiners; they sit in the front row during yoga and movies and are first in line to hear concerts at Lake Harriet. They like the independence of their own kitchen—and making me run around town for groceries. I believe they feel at home at The Kenwood. And I have peace of mind that they have the support they need to live independently. Also, The Kenwood was among the first senior buildings to get access to the vaccine—a HUGE relief for me! The protocols kept residents safe, and now my 90-something mom and dad are flourishing.

If you are looking for an assisted living facility for yourself or loved one you have found it. The Kenwood is really an amazing place. Staff are absolutely fabulous, all of them! The building is very nice, interesting activities and the most impressive thing is that everyone Ive talked to that lives at The Kenwood loves it, I mean they really love it. You can feel the upbeat positive vibe throughout the facility. The Kenwood should be a blueprint on how to do Assisted Living right. Kudos to everyone there for having such a great place! So thankful!

The Kenwood has been providing a warm and supportive community for my brother. He has felt comfortable, safe and well-cared for through the pandemic and local unrest. He has made good friends and has especially enjoyed the activities within the building. The nursing care has been kind and thoughtful and communicated well with his family.

My grandfather lives at The Kenwood. Recently he has needed more services and it was seamless to add additional nursing care. Moreover, the people who have helped and responded to my grandfather have been stellar. Before he needed extra help, Rosa-in housekeeping-was always so kind and attentive to him without ever needing to ask- she went beyond her job to genuinely care for him. Thank you!!!

I moved my parents here a year and a half ago. It is like sending your big kids to camp. It has been a very positive experience. There are lots of activities for them to do, the people are interesting and have a wealth of backgrounds. They have outings to Baseball games, the Orchestra, Museums, movies and anything else you can come up with. The staff has bent over backwards to be kind and helpful. I can't say enough about how patient everyone has been. The facilities themselves may need an update, but giving up the cosmetics for the rest is a no-brainer. My parents really are enjoying themselves, and the comfort that I have knowing they're safe and don't need me for all their entertainment has been a life saver. I highly recommend it for curious seniors who want to go to an endless sleep-away camp!

The staff of The Kenwood go beyond their job descriptions to help any resident...the facilities were intelligently designed to provide various types of spaces for various tenant needs...after living in a lovely neighborhood looking at Lake of the Isles for 29 years, we found the residents of The Kenwood to be the most interesting community of personalities we ever lived in.

The Kenwood is a very good community for people in need of assistance. My mother has been well served by the Kenwwod staff for 5+ years. Is it perfect? No. I believe most assisted living facilities suffer from the same problems. The best things about the Kenwood are the location and the people who live there and the activities programming and the van. My mother has made lots of new and supportive friends there.

There are so many fascinating seniors here - people who have had interesting professional lives. They're well-cared for and seem to look forward to the events planned. This is living, not just waiting....

I am so glad that I chose Walden Place for my Mom. From the time I came for the tour to the time we decided to move her there, everyone there was nothing but supportive. The staff and residents welcomed my Mom with open arms. I went from worrying about her every day when she was 3 hours away from me and living not well by herself. Since Mom has been at Walden Place, my anxiety level has gone way down. I know she is living at the BEST place she could ever be. ***By the way, no one from Walden Place told me to write these words. They come straight from my heart.

We're delighted with our decision 14 years ago to move to The Kenwood. We love being in the city — being near major streets when we chose to use our car, and having options for public bus routes or the Kenwood van. Lively conversation and interesting people are readily at hand. This is the right place for us.
