Our Story

In 2015, Olive Branch Estates opened its’ doors, a family owned, Memory Care community in Chanhassen, MN, where residents live comfortably surrounded by the beauty of scenic woods overlooking a tranquil pond. With just 24 apartments, Olive Branch Estates is small enough to be homey, yet large enough for residents to participate in activities and socialize with one another.

Services / Programs

Memory Care

Olive Branch Estates, a premier Memory Care community provides private apartments for those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia in a peaceful, home-like setting, including an outdoor garden/patio area. We offer studio, 1-bedroom w/kitchenettes and 2-bedroom apartment homes.

Respite Care

Olive Branch Estates offers a respite/short-term care suite for a minimum of 5 days to as long as 90 days. Enjoy all the amenities including three meals per day, snacks, social activity programs, private and public dining, beauty/barber salon (available for an extra charge), and the use of our beautiful family room and outdoor patio.


A Day In The Life

A resident starts their day waking up at the time they choose. The plan of care is designed around resident choices and past at home routines. One resident may get up at 6am, another resident 10am. Medications and morning cares are scheduled around their sleep history and preference.

The level of assistance is based upon the needs of the resident identified through nursing assessments. We encourage each resident to do as much as they can safely, and staff assist with the rest. For example, a resident may be able to wash their own face and upper body, and staff assist only with lower body, or socks and shoes. Sustaining as much independence as possible is very important to maintain physical ability and promote a sense of wellbeing.

A healthy, made to order breakfast is prepared for the resident when they make their way down to the dining area, either independently, or with a staff escort.
