Laua Party! What a fun way to bring a little summer feel into the building on such a snowy day! We all had so much fun with some live music with Aaron, Aloha Bingo and of course our little party!!

My favorite part of Aaron Shoemaker coming in to sing is that he always has a knack for getting everyone up and dancing! Thank you for entertaining us on this dreary snowy day Aaron, we always enjoy your performances!

At the Des Moines Aging Consortium this week we learned quite a bit from the Iowa Board of Nursing. Remember to thank our Iowa nurses for all they do!

We have had a busy week so far! We had an indoor snowball fight, went to the casino for some live music and dancing and celebrated hat day with our red hat ladies.

The process of finding a place for your loved one is hard enough, we’re here to make it easier. To help you navigate this change most effectively we remove the barriers and give you what you really want - pricing first!

Base Rate    +    Care Rate    =    Real Rates

Base Rate

$120 to $180 per day. Range depends on the apartment you choose.

Care Rate

$30 to $130 per day. Range depends on the care and services needed.

Community Fee of $250 per month for ten months.

It’s that easy.

Whether or not our pricing fits in your budget, we ask you to consider 4 things:

  1. Know that there may be financial resources available that you might not be aware of.

    To explore this, take advantage of our complimentary third-party financial concierge service – Elderlife Financial
  2. Know that our rates are all-inclusive*.

    Don’t forget our rates include meals, care, activities, basic utilities, housekeeping, linen and laundry service, and more! All-inclusive details.
  3. Know the affordability of senior living.

    Many families are surprised at the affordability of senior living as compared to what they are currently spending at home. Check out our Expense Worksheet to compare for yourself.
  4. Remember what matters most.

    While there are many things you should buy at a discount, care isn’t one of them.

It is easy to say that we do whatever it takes to make our residents happy, but the real question is – are our current residents actually happy?

Read below to find out how happy our current residents and families really are.
