Illahee Hills is a senior living community here in Urbandale that is kind of a hidden gem.

We are located atop a hill in a quiet residential neighborhood. We have been here more than 25 years, and have employees that have been with us since we opened! Within walking distance we have a large grocery store, many restaurants, veterinarian services, shopping and much much more!

Although we are an individual entity, we are backed by our parent company Holiday Retirement, and we have over 20,000 residents within the USA and Canada! Over 20,000 residents can't be wrong!

We aren't an assisted living, and we aren't a nursing home. We are a close-knit community of older adults that have decided to make the hard things in life a little easier, and at the same time with the way we are designed, we naturally encourage neighborliness and friendships.

How do we do that???

We have an onsite restaurant that we serve 3 meals a day in, not a €œdining room€. Each meal is served restaurant style by waiters and waitresses. We come around and take orders from each table rather than passing a pre-planned...

my review

as long as you are good on your own you're fine. But if you need any assistance this facility doesn't offer it. there is no one at the community from 7 pm-7 am. If your independent then I would recommend this community.

Sad That Seniors Have No Personal Contact

The community is too expensive. The food isn't good especially with COVID. All the residents are being served food in their room. I wish there was a way to see and touch my loved one. There is no mandatory stay in your room order for the residents. This is a corporate decision, I realize this. I just find it sad.

Overall good, cost effective but room for improvement

They are very cost-effective. There is not a lot of follow-through when you ask for things. The washing machines and laundry room are really bad. The food has really declined in last 8 months, what is on the menu is not what you get and it is often burnt or cold.
