Memory Care in Iowa

Overview of Memory Care in Iowa

Iowa is often referred to as the “Land of the Rolling Prairie” due to the immense fertile plains that cover the region. The state is famous for its farms, growing crops such as corn and soybeans. Iowa is more than just farmland, however – it’s home to many quaint, rural towns as well as larger cities such as Sioux City and Des Moines. Its varied landscape, relatively low cost of living, and proximity to major Midwestern cities like Chicago and Minneapolis make Iowa a convenient location to call home and a great place to retire.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 80 senior living communities in Iowa that provide memory care. The median monthly cost of memory care in Iowa is about $5,400.
