About Glen Oaks Alzheimers Special Care Center

In the majestic area of Urbandale Iowa there is an awesome assisted living facility called Glen Oaks Alzheimers Special Care Center. It is an assisted living facility but it is also a community for seniors who are battling alzheimers. Any time a family has to battle this dreaded disease it is never easy and can be very stressful to the family. We do make sure that all of the resident's have their medications as needed. We provide activities both inside and outside and we do have outside areas that our residents can come together. We also have a beautician on staff and of course we make sure all of our residents have meals and snacks. We even allow pets and have found that pets can be very comforting to our residents. We also encourage family members to come by and visit their loved ones. We want family to come by so our residents have the balance between our staff and their family. We know that your loved one's safety and care is important and that is our primary concern to put your mind at ease.

Family Testimonials

"I also want to once again extend my heartfelt gratitude for all the help and assistance you have provided for our mom. We moved her yesterday and we immediately found peace of mind and found confidence in the care and concern shown to her during her admission."

Fran C., Found Assisted Living in Des Moines, IA

"Our mom is moving to a really nice assisted living facility.  When she visited, one of her old friends came up to say hello to her---someone she hadn't seen for a long time and didn't realize was living there.  She seems to be feeling good about her decision and we are certainly happy with knowing she will have a good place to live with the assistance she needs. "
