Assisted Living in Iowa

Iowa is often referred to as the “Land of the Rolling Prairie” due to the immense and 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 large Midwestern cities such as 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 100 senior living communities in Iowa that provide assisted living. The median monthly cost of assisted living in Iowa is about $4,200.

My mom stayed at The Bridges for her rehab after her shoulder surgery. The therapy team was amazing and always took the time with her. She is grateful to have recovered and is back home. But, if we need to go somewhere in the future THE BRIDGES IS WHERE WE WOULD GO!!

MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care at Jordan Creek in West Des Moines, IA
5.0

My mother moved into MorningStar Assisted Living 3 1/2 months ago. She stated she is very happy here and "You couldn't find a better place". The staff is compassionate. Needs are quickly addressed by management. It's obvious they care. I should add that the facility is beautiful, the meals are great and she enjoys the many activities. Although my brother and I are still very involved in her life, the family rests better knowing mom has the help she needs.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.
