At our Benedictine Madonna Towers independent living community in Rochester, MN, we believe you can’t truly have independence without freedom. That means freedom from shoveling, mowing, raking, fixing, cleaning and cooking. So go ahead, pursue a new interest or take an extended trip to see family and friends while we take care of all the chores. We believe the most difficult question you should have to answer is “What new and interesting thing do I want to do today?”
Even our dining options are set up to help you get more out of life. Grab a quick lunch on the way to appointments or outings in our community bistro. Dine with friends and neighbors in our restaurant-style dining room. Or cook for yourself — even host a dinner party — and enjoy an evening at home. Our senior living community helps you live your way with the security of knowing health care is available on-site should you ever need it.
Choosing independent living means you’re free to fully enjoy life and make the most of everything our modern faith-based retirement community has to offer. With rent starting at $1,940, we’re sure to have the floor plans and living options to fit your lifestyle and budget.

Why would I choose independent living if I can stay in my home instead?
Living alone in a house that was once full of family can be isolating and lonely. Independent living communities offer an array of opportunities to socialize, learn something new, enjoy cultural events, and more. And when you choose an independent living community, you can leave chores like cooking, cleaning, home maintenance and lawn care behind. If your family members worry about your safety living alone, they’ll gain valuable peace of mind knowing you live in a community with staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Can my grandchildren, family and friends visit?
Your guests are always welcome in your home, and they’re more than welcome to enjoy our common living areas, dining venues, amenities and activities with you while visiting. Some of our communities also offer guest rooms that can be reserved and rented for visiting family members and friends.
Are pets allowed?
Yes. They’re family, too! Many of our communities are pet-friendly and welcome dogs, cats, birds and fish upon approval through our Pet Admissions Program. Be sure to ask about the pet policy, approval process, and the pet-friendly areas of the community when you visit. All our communities accept service dogs and certified companion animals.
May I bring my car?
Many people do bring their cars, but with all the transportation options provided by our communities, a car isn’t a necessity. Many couples find they prefer one car instead of two, but that’s totally up to you.
