Frequently Asked Questions
- Minnesota Masonic Homes is a not-for-profit organization. Why should this be important to me?
Our commitment to providing care comes from a mission of service and a history of respect for the dignity of our elders.
We are governed by a board of directors, whose members volunteer their time and talent to assure quality services and management.
- Is there a waiting list for admission?
What do I need to do to get on the waiting list?
We do have waiting lists for many of our services. The wait time varies by type of care service needed, type of room desired, and other factors. For example, in our Transitional Care Unit (short term unit) there is usually availability as the openings change daily. Once we have completed our assessment during the admission process, we will be able to give you the waiting list information for the area you will need.
The length of a waiting list should not discourage an individual from seeking admission. Although being on a list does not guarantee placement, it does give the individual and MMH an indication of sincere interest when an opening occurs.
Give us a call! A quick phone call placed to the Admissions Department can get you or your loved one onto our care center waiting list or pre-registered with our Transitional Care Unit.
