Services – What We Do Best

24 Hour Nursing Care

Included in the daily rate is 24-hour professional nursing service provided by RNs, LPNs, and nursing assistants/registered. Services such as oxygen use, diabetic care, wound care and others are provided as ordered by each resident’s personal physician. Assistance in bathing, grooming, dressing and other activities of daily living are also provided. Nursing care is designed to meet the needs and preferences of each resident.

All staff are trained annually in Alzheimer’s and Dementia care.

Wellness Program

The Aftenro wellness department offers classes and programs aimed at maintaining physical function and quality of life. They are available Monday through Friday with group classes, 1:1 exercise programs, and an on-site massage therapist. They also work closely with homecare therapy services to follow through with recommendations and prescribed exercise routines. Dan Lindberg, our Wellness Director, has over a decade of experience working in geriatric physical therapy and strives to keep every Aftenro resident safe and working up to their potential.

Spiritual Care

Our Spiritual Coordinator helps our residents meet their spiritual needs. We provide a variety of weekly interdenominational services with the assistance of local pastors, priests, rabbis and volunteers. In addition, pastoral care visits are available as well as a weekly prayer group, hymn sing, and more.

Social Services

Anna Netteberg, LSW

Our licensed Social Worker, Anna Netteberg, will assist residents in finding resources to best meet the psychosocial, mental, and emotional needs of each unique resident.

The Social Worker will be the primary contact person to best assist you in coordinating all admissions, transfers, and discharges from our facility.

Business Office

Daily rate (case-mix rates) are determined by the Minnesota Department of Human Services based on a state mandated assessment tool which generates a case-mix score. For this reason, rates may vary based on the resident’s care needs. Approved methods of payment are private pay and Medicaid (Medical Assistance). Aftenro also accepts Long Term Care Insurance as approved by the insurance provider. Please contact our Business Office for further information at 218-728-6604.
