My mother is very happy here. They have activities like cards, afternoon snacks, music, the casino, other day trips around the community and more for the residents to do. My loved one does not participate in all things but for the majority she does and she likes it.
Our cooperative community with partnering with Independence Village. I have been impressed with the staff of this community and believe this partnership with Vintage of Ames will be a very positive venture.
We live in the Vintage Co-op in Ames Iowa and the staff at Independence Village have made 3 meals for us. They are truly ambassadors for their facility. Even with Covid they served a beautiful Valentine, St. Pats and last night a Luau. We had to pick up 2 but they brought one to us. We really enjoyed their friendship and hospitality. They went above and beyond. Thanks
One person from Vintage moved to your Ames facility and her children spoke very highly of your facility. Independence Village has been really hospitable in treating us to meals were delicious and fun sharing with other members of our community. Thank you
Nice space, people are nice! Food is delicious!
I was here for a respite stay. The staff was very nice to everyone - and accommodating. Whenever button pressed they came and helped. The food was excellent! Very pleasant room / place. NO objections!
Everyone is SO helpful. They want to please. The food is good!! Almost all residents are friendly and helpful. I'm glad I'm here.
I came to this community to visit and it's really beautiful. The residents seemed really happy together. The staff was very personable and genuinely showed that they care. The chef made a great meal for us too! Very happy!
Staff are very helpful. It's near my family. Clean. Allows personal to [unreadable] free to do personal important in own activities and QUIET.
It will be nice if one of the dryers that currently doesn't work gets fixed. Nice when all of us get Channel 5 back. Good food service don't have to wait a long time to get the meal assigned to a person. Don't have fancy ham just plain ham.
Response from Independence Village of AmesSeptember 20, 2021
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you are impressed with the food. The dryer has been fixed. Unfortunately, Channel 5 not working is a provider issue that we are unable to resolve. We encourage you to reach out to the Executive Director at the community if you would like to further discuss any concerns. Thanks.
Very helpful, polite when working with you. Food is great. Enjoy the help because I have macular eye disease and they help me when I need it. Really happy that I get to have my dog Zoey and how much love she gets.
I am the trustee for one of the residents. The staff is friendly, helpful, and supportive. It is always nice to be welcomed. Independence Village is beautiful and very well cared for.
The staff strives to provide quality patient-centered care. They are knowledgeable about their residents. Independence Village of Ames has a fun, bright atmosphere.
I really think the staff and tenants care for each other here, and the overall ambiance is positive, bright, and kind!
The staff help to build a positive, fun environment, and truly seem to care about the residents overall well-being and what is best for each individual.
The process of moving my mom in and getting her transitioned to assisted living after being on her own for so long was outstanding. She received the perfect amount of attention and service, yet autonomy to grow herself in her new home. She loves the staff and her new resident friends. The engagement of my mom with the activities and social aspects has been a perfect balance for her... and she is enjoying her days. While my family was looking for safety for her, we found that... and happiness, which was the ultimate goal!

I had the chance to visit Independence Village of Ames last week and the community was so incredibly warm and inviting. There were residents and staff socializing together everywhere you looked--in the lobby, in the activity rooms, and on the front porch as you walked in. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming! The life enrichment director, [name removed], was delivering a Just Peachy mobile cart full of home-baked snacks and cocktails door to door to each resident, how fun!
This is a wonderful community that engages with residents and makes them comfortable in their new home. Staff are very friendly and willing to help!
