A late-fall water main break at Brentmoor Retirement Community lead to a full remodel of the facility.
The renovations are now complete and in conjunction with the remodel showcase, Brentmoor has launched a new independent living program.
The November water main break caused extensive damage to the dining room and main living quarters of the facility.
Residents were evacuated for two months.
Today, the finishing touches are being made to the entry at Brentmoor.
Brand new furniture and a new library are among the changes.
The new program came to be when Brentmoor saw a need for independent living arrangements after the flood.
(Sandy Larson, Brentmoor Community Relations) "We're excited about and excited for the residents of Minot because knowing that now is the time when they need to get our of those FEMA trailers and they might be looking at a place where they can come and have their own private apartment, meals included, weekly housekeeping, laundry, bedding, linens, bath towels and prearranged transportation. The whole package is going to be a wonderful experience for for those who need a little extra help."
Independent living apartments are $1500 to Minot's retirement community which includes three meals a day and housekeeping.
Assisted living programs are also available.
