Winona Health assisted living residences

earn Confident Choices designation

Winona Health’s assisted living residences, Watkins Manor, Adith Miller Manor and Roger Metz Manor, recently earned the Confident Choices for Senior Living designation. Confident Choices is a program designed by Aging Services of Minnesota to improve quality in assisted living settings, increase public trust and inform consumer decision making.

“Earning the Confident Choices designation reflects the efforts of our entire staff,” said Cheryl Krage, manager of assisted living at Winona Health. “Everything we do is intended to enhance the health and well-being of our residents and to improve their peace of mind and the peace of mind of their families.”

In order to receive the Confident Choices designation, all of Winona Health’s assisted living communities met certain core and elective requirements in several areas including ethical practice, management experience and training, customer satisfaction, resident information and communication, regulatory compliance, staff training and satisfaction, performance improvement and resident services.

Aging Services of Minnesota is the state’s largest association of professionals working in the area of older adult services. The requirements for Confident Choices were developed by assisted living professionals and are based on standards of practice that truly influence the quality of a resident’s experience.

Winona Health offers assisted living options for independent seniors at Watkins Manor and for those who need memory care at Adith Miller and Roger Metz manors. Currently there are rare openings at Adith Miller and Roget Metz manors. Both are home-like residences nestled between Sugarloaf Bluff and Lake Winona and conveniently located near healthcare services on the Winona Health campus.
