Generations Child & Memory Care

Generations Child & Memory Care is bridging the gap between generations with an innovative approach that enriches the lives of both young and old.

“Our top priority is continuing to enrich the lives of our grandfriends and kiddos in our small, person-centered facility,” Morgan Haman said. “Our focus is to provide a safe and home-like atmosphere with everyday programming that decreases isolation and continues to promote independence as long as possible.”

Haman is a licensed assisted living director and child care director at Generations.

The Generations concept was developed by co-owner Kristin Gunsolus, who wanted to build her grandmother a quality care facility that she could call home. Her grandmother, Shelby, had Alzheimer’s and needed memory care. While researching her new business idea, Gunsolus discovered a facility on the West Coast with the intergenerational concept. So, she decided to bring the concept to Mankato. Co-owners Jody Linder, Jared Linder and Brittany Linder helped her bring her vision to life.

Generations opened its door in January. It’s a one-of-a-kind Mankato facility that offers both child care and memory care, including daily cross-generational activities. Its child care center accepts children ages 6 weeks to 5 years with a total capacity of 42. The Assisted Living with Dementia Care area has a 22-tenant capacity.

“We have 20 private suites that are equipped with their own heating and air controls, cable TV hookup, large private bathroom with a walk-in shower, vanity and natural light,” Haman said. “Our staff provides person-centered care for all and other services needed for each tenant. I care so much for my grandfriends, and I can see that my team does, as well.”
