Solbakken is run by our very own, Darla Thao and Dr. Toua Xiong, who acquired Solbakken from a mother/daughter duo who ran the facility for almost 20 years. The founders bequeathed Solbakken to Darla and Dr. Toua due to their shared vision of maintaining a compassionate, faith-based living environment for seniors.
This endeavor is very personal to Darla and Dr. Toua, who were both raised by their grandparents. As they began their careers in medicine in Central Valley, California, they realized that there were very few options for quality senior living environments for their grandparents. This inspired them to delve into the senior living care industry, which eventually brought them to Minnesota where they would begin their vocation under the Solbakken name.
During the transition of ownership, the longtime staff of Solbakken remained. That said, many of our nurses have been at Solbakken for almost a decade – if not longer – finding fulfillment, family, joy, and friendship within our walls.
