Independent Living


Living an independent, active lifestyle at Amira Choice Forest Lake means focusing your energy on what matters most to you: community, family and friends, interests and more. With the flexibility of rental living – and without the burden of home maintenance – our residents have the time and space to relish home and community with friendly neighbors in a similar phase of life. 

Savor cooking in your own kitchen or let our talented chefs do the work at our restaurant-style dining room. While we take care of home and yard maintenance (we can even handle add-on services like garbage removal, laundry and housekeeping, if you wish), you can enjoy our amenities and programming or get out and explore the area. The choice is yours. 

Our pet-friendly senior living community in Forest Lake, Minnesota, is the perfect place to start a new and invigorating chapter of your life, where you can feel confident that support is there should you need it in the future.
