Location and Contact Information
Cerenity Marian is a Life Plan Community, also known as a continuing care retirement community, in east St. Paul offering all levels of care and housing. The campus includes:
- The Residence at Cerenity Marian: Independent and Assisted Living apartments
- The Care Center at Cerenity Marian: Hospice, 24-hour Skilled Nursing Care, Transitional Care, Rehabilitation, Memory Care, Enhanced Assisted Living and Special Care Unit for short-term dementia
- Our community allows individuals and couples to choose the housing and care options that suit their needs best. For example, one spouse may require around-the-clock nursing, while the other needs minimal or no care. At Cerenity Marian, they can remain near each other on the same campus. A social worker and nurse will help the individuals, couples and their families determine the level of care needed.
Social events, craft groups, music and book clubs are just a few of the many quality programs available 7 days a week for all residents to enjoy. Outings to destinations such as apple orchards, casinos, restaurants, shopping areas and the Minnesota State Fair take place throughout the year. For most outings, we use our wheelchair-accessible van; we also have a shuttle-style golf cart for rides to beautiful Mounds Park.
We hold exercise classes multiple times each week through the Cerenity Marian Wellness Program. These classes help residents improve their strength and balance, which helps reduce their risk of falling.
Our committed staff helps create a warm, hospitable atmosphere. 71% of them contribute regularly to a fund that makes special purchases for the campus, such as a shuttle-style golf cart for taking residents on outings to nearby Mounds Park.

The Care Center at Cerenity Marian
Prior to admission, a social worker and nurse conduct an assessment to determine the optimum level of care for each individual resident. Our social services department helps incoming residents and their families with aspects of moving in and adjusting to life at Cerenity Marian. Throughout a resident’s stay, social workers ensure each resident’s needs are met, assist with applying for financial assistance and refer residents and family members to community resources as needed. They also assist with discharge planning as appropriate.
Assisted Living Memory Care is housing with services for residents who require a safe environment due to memory loss. A caring environment is provided for 30 residents at Cerenity Marian. Memory care is designed for seniors with various types of dementia, experiencing mild to moderate stages of the disease. A wander guard system is in place to keep residents safe, ensuring they don’t leave the floor unaccompanied.
Enhanced Assisted Living provides a higher level of care for those residents who are no longer safe in their own apartment, but don’t yet require the advanced care available in Skilled Nursing. Enhanced Assisted Living provides a private room for all 30 residents with common dining and activity space. Resident assistants provide care under the direction of a nurse, 24/7.
Skilled Nursing is the highest level of care provided on the Cerenity Marian campus. Nursing staff is available 24 hours a day to administer medications, monitor physical and emotional changes, and arrange hospitalization and/or medical appointments as requested by a physician. Each resident receives assistance with bathing, grooming and dressing. Each bedside has a call light if a resident needs immediate assistance.
Inpatient Rehabilitation services for people who need skilled medical care after surgery or serious illness. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are available six days a week to help each person recover as quickly as possible. Outpatient therapy is also available to all residents residing on the Cerenity Marian campus.
Cerenity Marian also has a program for short-term rehabilitation services for patients experiencing delirium and who may need memory care. The Marian Special Care Unit team assists residents who require transitional care, physical, occupational and speed therapy, as well as discharge planning.
Each of the furnished private and semiprivate rooms features a flatscreen TV with cable, wireless internet access and phone with local service. Clients may dine in our private dining room or in their room. There is a comfortable lounge adjacent to the dining room. Individuals also have access to the amenities at Cerenity Marian, including chapel services; chiropractic, acupuncture and massage services; beauty/barber shop; and recreational, educational and social activities.
