Activities for memory care in Brainerd and Baxter

 We provide care that strives to meet the whole well-being of your loved one. Each person is more than the physical body they inhabit. They have cognitive, emotional, spiritual & social needs too. We have thoughtfully created memory care programs & care plans to meet individual whole-person needs; we incorporate these into daily life enriching activities to honor these needs.

Our layout is intentional. We especially celebrate our centralized yet private outdoor courtyard for visiting, strolling, light gardening, bird watching & group activities. Our welcoming dining room on the north end overlooks our courtyard. The cheerful activity & communal living room on the south end also overlooks our courtyard.  

Northern Lakes Senior Living partners with MHealth (Fairview Health Services & University of Minnesota), and the Alzheimer’s Association to offer innovative programs.

Lisa Battin

Culinary Director 

Lisa has been with Northern Lakes since it opened! She runs an organized kitchen & values team work. Lisa wants meal time to be a highlight for residents. Delicious food & excellent service are her standard. 

Northern Lakes has been a Godsend for my parents. My mom needs the added care and my dad can stay with her. The aides, caregivers and staff are so kind, caring, and professional. They provide such good care. The facility itself is beautiful, clean, and well maintained. It feels homey. 


Northern Lakes is taking extreme care at keeping my mother safe, comfortable, and entertained. They have found a way to make personal visits, to continue the exercise routines and having the residents work out at their doorway. My mom sits in her doorway and plays bingo with those on her floor for prizes.
