Any senior age 60 or older is welcome to attend. The suggested donation for a senior is $4.00, but nobody will be turned away if they are unable to pay. People who are less then 60 years of age can eat at the senior dining site, but must pay the full cost of the meal, $7.00. Meals can also be paid for through SNAP benefits.

Active Resident Council: The resident council meets monthly, resident council members are elected by the residents and consist of 12 members; 6 each from Jordan Towers I and II. Members are eligible to serve 2-one year terms. The resident council plans activities and also discuses and reviews items presented to them by the Red Wing HRA regarding policies and other matters of concern.
Past activities have included: The planning of monthly activities for the Jordan Towers: summer picnic, game night, Treasure Island Casino trip, catered dinners, holiday parties, New Year’s Eve party, scheduling of entertainment, music groups, pie & ice cream social, and many more fun activities.
Contributions: The Resident Council conducts fund raisers and contributes to the Jordan Towers for items the residents would like to purchase. An example of this is the purchase of internet service, paying for bus rides and contributing to the holiday dinner that enables the council to offer a wider spectrum of activities.
Home Health Care:
Often due to age, illness or surgery many residents require a certain level of support to remain in their home. A number of home health care services are available at Jordan Towers. The HRA currently contracts with Goodhue County Public Health, and ACCRA, and Mayo-Red Wing HomeCare and Hospice to provide these services. Qualified personnel provide nursing and homemaker services, allowing residents to maintain independence in their home.
Independent Living Services Program (ILSP)
For many years the HRA has offered the ILS Program in Jordan Towers. This program offers home health care, homemaker services and Customized Living Services (CLS) at a reduced cost to our tenants.
With over 200 tenants eligible for the program and a limited budget we make an effort to serve those most in need. Services are offered to residents under a sliding fee scale. A monthly adjusted income cap and two different income rates – one for individuals and another one for couples have been implemented. An individual with an adjusted monthly income over $1200 will not be subsidized. Individuals or couples must have assets of less $60,000. A couple with an adjusted monthly income over $1400 will not be subsidized. There will be a maximum of $100.00 per household per month.
Our Social Services Coordinator can assist you in accessing this program. She can also do referrals to home health agencies as well as the CLS program. Please stop by her office in the lobby of Jordan Towers I or call her at 651-388-7614.
Customized Living Services (CLS):
A Community Services Development Grant awarded by the Department of Human Services allowed the Red Wing Housing and Redevelopment Authority to add CLS as an option in the fall of 2003. ACCRA Home Health provides the services.
The basic assisted living package includes the following with additional “a la carte”:
- On-site nursing, direct support professional staff and homemaker services 12 hours per day, 7 days per week.
- 24 hour emergency response accessed through a pendant worn by the resident (12 hr. ACCRA staff/12 hr. family).
- 2 safety checks per day.
- Continental breakfast prepared and delivered to your home; escort to SEMCAC dining site for midday meal; evening meal prepared and delivered to your home.
- Homemaking services 1-2 times per month.
Many residents will qualify to receive these services free or at a reduced cost through the Elderly Waiver. The Independent Living Services program also offers a minimal subsidy to private pay tenants.
