Our experience with Ramsey Village

The continuing care here is great, it is invaluable. They have everything from independent living all the way to skilled nursing. The overall atmosphere is more of a hotel like appearance. We would definitely recommend them to others looking.

This seemed like a nice place. The exterior and main areas are newly renovated. Not all of the rooms are. Those that are done have very high end finishes (marble counter top in kitchenette. Rooms are small and this place was by far the most expensive.

Tour for family care

I toured this community. I was able to have my questions answered. I like that the community is clean and maintained. The menu was appealing and the staff was attentive. They do offer a list of activities that are offered to the residents who want to participate. We would suggest that they tour this community for the care of a loved one and for the needs that are required.

A good stay!

My husband was at Ramsey Village for a respite stay and they took very good care of him. We were off to a rough start because at first, they were asking him about his medications and other thing and never asked me. After a week or so things got better and they began to communicate with me. They bent over backward to accommodate him. The food was good and I appreciated that they got him into physical therapy while he was there

Due to our Mom's health issues and complications, her stay at Ramsey Village was very short. However, in the short time that we were there -- we felt much caring concern for Mom's well being and ours. Thanks for providing that special touch that makes us all feel cared for.

I was impressed by the professionalism of the staff at Ramsey Village. It's clean and safe, clients are well treated. I recommend adding some music or television in the dining areas. Over all, a much better choice than others in the Des Moines area.

We toured this facility. Were very disappointed in the size of rooms, confusing layout, and lack of cleanliness. I realize they are undergoing renovation, so that is a probable cause for some of the conditions.
