Arlington Place at Oelwein
5.0

We're very pleased with our experience with Arlington Place! They were a huge help to us throughout the whole process, and the transition went flawlessly! I really never thought it would go that well! They gave us a lot of advice on how to prepare our loved one for the move and help things go smoothly.

Rosewood Estate in Waterloo, IA
4.9

We are very very happy here at Rosewood Estate. It is a unique model, because it allows you to choose how much care you want to use. They encourage you to use that level of care. The difference in the number of falls is radically different that at her prior facility. The staff members are just so kind and compassionate with the residents. My mother has not complained at all and she looks younger since she has been here receiving their care. I would highly recommend them to others who are looking.

Parker Place is excellent. So far, they've been very friendly. I know they are short staffed, but they seem to be working through that. The community itself is small and I would recommend them to others.
