Business Journal readers learn about new boomer living arrangement

I was pleased to talk about Vibrante Living with Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal reporter Nick Williams. It’s gratifying that reporters think enough about this concept to want to share the Vibrante story with their readers. Nick compared Vibrante Living to the award-winning television show Golden Girls. That’s a nice compliment, but believe me, this is a new concept in shared senior living.

Young adults have enjoyed the shared living concept for a long time. With boomers redefining both retirement and what housing for people 55-plus looks like, shared living is now a great idea for senior women. Nick described Vibrante tenants as, “active, single women who no longer want to live alone, looking to downsize and who don't want to live on a senior living campus that can have up to 100 units.” He got it exactly right.

As I told Nick, after working in senior services for the past six years, I’m convinced that active older women want more out of life than bingo and bus trips to the mall. Vibrante Living’s proximity to Lake Nokomis, dedicated walking and biking trails, swimming and sailing areas, and great restaurants make it easy for members to continue living interesting, varied lives.

Nick and I also discussed the cost to live at Vibrante, which varies according to the size of each of our four private suites. All rooms offer en suite bathrooms and the largest has a seating area and fireplace. Shared living areas include a sunroom, library, LR, DR, kitchen, and patio. I’m pleased to share our newly revised pricing structure beginning November 1. Call me 612-816-6940 to learn more – it may be more affordable than you think!

Vibrante Living has other amenities that you may not find in most senior living facilities, like our concierge service, which is included in the monthly membership fee. We can do anything from arranging for tickets to shows or sporting events, to booking travel plans or even arranging to bring in a chef for special dinners. We can also help you vet and connect with businesses to help you move in, or other services if you should need them as you age. We make staying active easy.
