A choice for care.

We toured this community for the care for my mother in law. We found the staff to be helpful with the questions we had. The activities would have been helpful for her to participate. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one.

The rose of East Des Moines

I was given the name of the rose of Des Moines and contacted them for vacancies to place my father in assisted-living there are actually two Rose of Des Moines and the Rose of Des Moines east. They had vacancies in the Rose of Des Moines east. Everything seem to move very smooth and the administrator worked very fast on getting my father placed I appreciate all the work they put into it and we were able to move my dad in in the middle of the month it is very nice facility and he is very happy there

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

This place looks like the pictures on the outside, but not on the inside. The entry area on 13th Street is extremely tiny & has an awful odor to it. The furniture & other furnishings look like they were picked up by Salvation Army Victorian age period reject drop-offs. Outside of the Dining Area, the rest of my tour reminded me off being herded down cattle chutes to very basic inexpensive motel rooms or apartments. The apartments are not worth what they are asking, nor this place. Too bad this is our only choice! This place is not what is portrayed online & in brochures. Get ALL PAPERWORK & CONTACTS IN WRITING, ON THE SPOT & RECORDED. Do not let them leave your person/premise without copies being made, by them, by you, or by someone, & if possible have them witnessed & photographed. If any money changes hands, get that copied & photographed, as well, & witnessed & taped. I can not insist this too much. And if something should happen to you, contact a lawyer right a way, & if you have ANY PROBLEM WITH THESE PEOPLE & ANY ANY ANY THING WITH MOVING IN, SICK YOUR LAWYER ON THEM RIGHT AWAY. For it is my opinion, & feeling, after working with them, that they are shady, crooked, untrustworthy, devious, & worse people; not to be trusted. They went so far as to fire or let go, all the people I worked with, so I could not work with them & started their crooked, cunning, & sinister practices, against me, while I was hospitalized in serious condition in the hospital.But, as I say, these are my dealings with them & feelings & opinions, thereafter. I am still very ill & they are still messing with & constantly hounding me, despite my destitution & condition. Don't deal with them, but if you must, be very very leary & aware & God Bless!
