Fees and Levels of Care

Fees and Level of Care

At Prairie Senior Cottages, the level of care is defined by the need and the wishes of the family. Prior to a resident being admitted, we complete an assessment by working together with all concerned to develop a comprehensive level of care, which will determine the resident’s monthly fee. The resident’s monthly fee will increase proportionately as the resident’s care requirements increase.  Contact our Family Support Specialist (507-550-0566) to find out more about the fees for the cottage you are inquiring about.
