expectations didn't line up with reality

the atmosphere is beautiful. the rooms are really clean, they try really hard to plan activities for the residents. the food is decent and the director was really easy to work with. we just felt like it wasn't a good placement for my loved one due to a combination of things. they seemed short staffed, which I'm sure played a part in different areas. my loved ones needs were maybe a little more than what could be adequately served in an assisted living community. it wasn't a good match for us, there were issues here and there that didn't work - but we did witness other seniors really thriving in that community and living their best lives! it was a short stay, as they didn't get to stay as long as we had originally planned....

Best in the area for Assisted Care In My Opinion

They're not quite as good as before Covid, but it's still a very friendly community. You'd better stay healthy or you won't be able to stay here. If you're on a special diet or anything ,forget about it. The staff was very good. It's just not great if your loved one gets sick and requires more care.

Loss & Independence

Moved in with my wife in 2016 and I dont think I would have been able to handle her unexpected passing without the help of the staff here and the support of my neighbors. Since my wife has been gone, I have still been able to be cared for and yet maintain my independence. I like that I can jump in my car in and go visit family or have them over to my apartment.

Giving Back

Good neighbors, I also enjoy the events held here. Not only can I attend events within the building but we also travel outside of the community. I particularly enjoy going on our monthly Casino trips. One thing that I most value is that I believe in giving back, and I am able to do that here with monthly fundraisers that are hosted here. Not only do I think this is a great community for myself, but also my son. He needs Memory Care and I had him moved from Dubuque Iowa to Prairie Hills at Ottumwa so that he could receive proper care and attention. I really like that I can visit him any time or day of the week.

You Can't Beat It!

I don't think you can beat it! I couldn't ask for a better place to have been for the past 12 years. If you need help, they're right there to help ya. I like having my own private apartment but I don't have to go far to be apart of a busy community.

Staying busy

I heard great things about Prairie Hills before I even moved here. When I moved here and got settled I was happy with how friendly all of my neighbors were and how welcoming the staff are! I often wonder how I got myself to try so many new things, but am glad that I am always presented with new activities. ITs easy to be busy! I was most surprised at how clean the community is at all times. I thought upon touring that maybe it was staged, but it really is this nice day to day. The staff really care about the building and the overall cleanliness.

Response from Addington Place Ottumwa

November 12, 2020

Miss Millie does not miss out on much - say that fast 5 times! It's good to hear you enjoy our programming and we appreciate you encouraging others to join in the fun. We enjoy your quick wit and "can do" attitude every day!

Food & Community

All of the staff know who you are here and genuinely care about how you feel. I was worried I wouldn't like talking to anyone here but I have made friends with my neighbors quickly because of all the activities the community offers. Also, the food couldn't be any better!

Independence & Wellness

Prairie Hills at Ottumwa is the only choice when it comes to senior living in Wapello County Iowa. The staff are well trained, med managed and take pride in their Community. Prairie Hills has both staff and residents who have been there for 10+ years. They are located on the Northside of Ottumwa, quietly tucked back off Rochester Road. Residents have access to a gym, spa, salon, activities, and bussing services. There is also an onsite memory care neighborhood. The memory care neighborhood is most impressive with their Montessori style approach to care and helping residents maintain independence. I really love watching their partnerships with music and pet therapy groups in the greater Ottumwa area. Nothing compares to the service and care at Prairie Hills.

Review of Prairie Hills

I was invited to do caricatures of the residents. We were in the South lounge sitting area which had great lighting. Many had never had a funny drawing done of themselves. All of the staff were very helpful. I especially noticed the way [name removed] gently kept on encouraging one of the residents who was a bit undecided to have her caricature drawn. Finally after all others were finished, she let me draw her. I had a great time talking with them and listening to them laugh about their drawing and sharing life stories. It's never for late to try something you have never done before!

Prairie hills has been a great community for my mother! Numerous staff, including the Executive Director, Health Director and the Environmental Director have helped my mother adjust to a loving, caring environment.
