Goodhue Living Welcomes Guests


The new Goodhue Living housing complex had a grand turnout for their red carpet event Tuesday, July 26th.  If you were interested in a living option for yourself or a loved one, or simply curious to see what is inside the walls of the new structure along County Road 9, this was your opportunity to walk in and explore.  Representatives were on hand to answer any questions and an informational packet was available to take home with you.

Goodhue Living is the name of the brand new senior community constructed in town and managed by Jaybird, a company based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  The 3-story structure contains 40 individual apartments with various floor plan options.  The main level includes a memory care unit with small but comfortable studio apartments and a common dining area.  The upper levels are for those needing assistance with daily tasks and offer studio, one and two bedroom options.  Residents may cook in their own kitchen or take advantage of meals served in the dining room.  Some units include a washing machine and dryer and offer views familiar to local residents.  Respite care will also be offered for those needing short-term help or recovery time.

The long list of services offered within the complex includes housekeeping, fitness and wellness programs as well as recreational activities, and staff on duty 24-hours.  Basic cable and Wi-Fi will keep you connected to the outside world or relax with a book from their library. The facility is even pet-friendly and offers an option for additional storage space and garage rental.

Several rooms showcasing the different floor plan options were open to the public during the red carpet event.   Representatives from contracted companies were able to explain the service contributions they will provide as residents start moving in soon.  A few vendors were set up and speaking with them earned tickets for a prize drawing.  One vendor was The Bake Shoppe who offered individual treats such as cupcakes and rolls. The Goodhue Lion’s food truck was onsite with free bratwurst, chips and beverages for the many visitors who took advantage of the opportunity to learn more about this new living option for local seniors.
