I visited this facility
North Star Retirement Community was great. It reminded me of being on a cruise ship. There were lots of things going and great people still living, not just waiting to die. The staff was great. The room shown to us was a one-bedroom, one-bath, but she showed us all the other floor plans. I liked the live band and dancing on Wednesday nights. They had a library, an exercise room, pianos on every floor, and all-day meals and a menu. Everything was inclusive. It was less expensive than the others, but you pay for it. They don't take financial assistance.
