“To care for those who once cared for us is one

of the highest honors.”

~ Tina Walker, The Inspired Caregiver-Finding Joy While Caring for Those You Love


Owners, Joe & Ioana Childs

Our History
Owners Joe and Ioana Childs have spent much of their career in senior care. Ioana started as a dietary aide in an assisted living community in high school and went to college for healthcare administration, eventually becoming a licensed nursing home administrator. She worked for a large nonprofit senior care organization where she met Joe, who’d been involved in senior wellness since earning his health and exercise science degree. A few years later, Ioana transferred to a home health agency.

When the first BeeHive Homes opened in Minnesota, Ioana visited the community and was amazed by the refreshing, personalized setting. Joe and Ioana both agreed they wanted to start their own franchise and be a part of this new spin on senior care. At BeeHive Homes of Maple Grove, seniors can enjoy life and improve their health, no matter their age.

The Next Best Place to Home
Our community is designed like a house with a variety of private rooms to accommodate individuals and couples. These surround a common area with a beautiful dining room, cozy family room, open kitchen, relaxing salon and spa, spacious sunroom, and a secure patio. Residents have access to three delicious meals a day, nutritious snacks, and opportunities for spiritual care, on-site physician visits, and pharmaceutical, lab, and podiatry services.

Our Specialized Design
Our home’s strategic design encourages purposeful wandering. Physical activity like this increases energy levels and stimulates appetites. Individualized memory boxes outside each room remind residents where they live. Families are encouraged to decorate their loved one’s private suite according to a theme on their respective wing. Sensory stations throughout the home appeal to different interests, engage the senses, increase social interaction, and reduce anxiety and depression.

Our Care Team
We hire only those whose experience, skills, and passion create an atmosphere of love and safety for our residents and for each other. Our trained dementia care providers deliver personalized services that uphold our residents’ emotional, physical, spiritual, vocational, and social well-being. Our leadership team has over two decades of combined experience caring for older adults.
