PEOPLE. PURPOSE. PASSION.
Memory care focused
assisted living communities
North Mankato and Owatonna
Birchwood Cottages’ mission is to serve those living with memory loss in an environment filled with compassion and purpose. We are driven to make a positive impact on the lives of our residents, their families, our employees and our local communities.
Our memory care communities are locally owned and managed, located in beautiful residential areas, with open homestyle environments designed specifically to serve those with memory loss. Our first building opened in December of 2015 in Owatonna with the addition of a second building in June of 2017. In 2018, Birchwood Cottages grew with a new building located in North Mankato.
Life at Birchwood Cottages
Memory Care Connections
PEOPLE are the heart of Birchwood Cottages. Creating meaningful connections is a vital part of the overall well-being of our residents and employees. We support and encourage building these connections between our residents, families and employees to foster a positive environment for our residents to live and for our employees to work. As a company, we strive to extend these connections beyond our walls to be a resource of support and education for family and friends and the greater community.
DEDICATED TO SERVE
PURPOSE is what drives the vision of Birchwood Cottages. We are all dedicated in providing a higher quality of life for our residents, and providing support for their families and the greater community. Our employees carry out this vision for our residents through innovation, integrity, and their unwavering compassion. They are trained to learn best practices for dementia through a variety of teaching methods upon employment and ongoing throughout their career with us. This gives them the tools they need to succeed in caring for those we serve.

Everything from the physical building structure, floor plans, and built-in technologies to the décor, comfort amenities and residential location shows our dedication to being leaders in memory care. Our passion extends to the greater community through partnerships, outreach, support groups, and active involvement with industry fundraising and awareness groups such as the Alzheimer’s Association and ACT on Alzheimer’s.
are saying about us:
Birchwood has been such a blessing to our family! This has been our grandma’s new home for the past year now since we moved her to Minnesota. They keep her active with fun community activities, are always helpful when scheduling visits and virtual calls, and the staff are some of the kindest people you’ll meet. This team goes above and beyond for their residents everyday!
