Independence Plus at York Gardens in Edina, Minnesota

Independence Plus Program

Be Independent With Peace of Mind

Our Independence Plus program is designed for those who would benefit from our Senior Living package and would like access to an emergency pendant and a daily check for safety and peace of mind. Our Independence Plus program also creates a lifestyle of convenience, freedom, and support.

Our licensed nursing staff will provide initial and ongoing assessments so our team can
provide assistance during an emergency health event or change in condition and make care recommendations. Our goal is to offer options and services that are tailored to your wants and needs, helping you to age in place.
