Donna’s new home is Suite Living Senior Care ( in Burnsville, Suite 23.  She loves visitors - even if you don't stay long. The best times to visit are 10am-12pm and 1-5pm. It's a secure facility, so you'll need to enter the door code or push the doorbell once inside. 

Overall, Donna seems happy in her new home, although she's confused about why she's there. Her imagination is vivid! She may tell you tales about where she's living or what she's done recently. Most of it isn't accurate, but don't try to correct her. Just go with the story. If you want to stay a while, consider preparing an activity or putting together a puzzle. She truly loves the visits. 


For 91 years, Donna was independent and strong. She helped her family and friends through countless challenges. She wanted to spend the rest of her life in the home she and her husband Dick shared for more than 60 years. Unfortunately, that’s no longer possible.

For the last few years, Donna showed signs of declining short-term memory and confusion. However, she still seemed capable of living on her own, with help from friends and family. Unfortunately, her mental health took a sudden turn for the worse in March, following the death of her brother Zane. After two stays in the hospital, Donna moved to Suite Living, which offers security, activities, and great care – in a warm environment. Her children visit as often as they can, and ask for her friends to do the same.
