Redefining Senior Living in Sartell

CentraCare Health is responding to the changing demographics in our senior community. In just a few years, the number of adults age 65 and older is expected to surpass the number of K-12 children in Minnesota. And in Stearns and Benton County, the projected population of people age 55 and older is expected to increase by 51 percent and 74 percent respectively by 2040. These changing demographics led to the need for expanded senior housing in our communities. St. Benedict’s Senior Community, a division of CentraCare, is proud to lead the way.

In summer 2016, St. Benedict’s Senior Community opened Chateau Waters, which is setting a new standard for senior living in Central Minnesota. The facility offers amenities that were chosen based on input from the community and features close ties to nature, which is felt throughout the nine-acre campus located in Sartell.

Chateau Waters is not your typical senior housing facility. Most accurately described as a “resort-style” senior community, the goal is to provide upscale accommodations for people 55 and older, who want to continue their active lifestyle while eliminating the headaches that sometimes go along with maintaining a home. With 72 one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartment units and 12 different floor plans to choose from, there are many options available.

“We wanted to give people an option that didn’t exist prior to Chateau Waters,” said Jennifer Vogel, director of marketing and communications for St. Benedict’s Senior Community. “The amenities we offer are second to none and include a spa and wellness center, restaurant, bar and bistro with indoor and outdoor seating, a performance center with a raised stage, a pickleball court, putting green and even a movie theatre room.”

While the numerous amenities throughout the campus grab your attention, there’s also a peace of mind that comes with being connected to health care services through CentraCare, if and when needed.
