Review ofIndependence Village of Ankeny
5.0

My mom lost her husband last year and decided to move to Independence Village in Ankeny so she could be close to her family. She moved into a one bedroom apartment with a private bathroom and a livingroom/diningroom/kitchenette combo. She brought her own furniture and keepsakes and now has a home she loves! The staff cleans her apartment once a week and they provide all of her meals. They also administer all of her medications. There are always activities that she can participate in or outings that residents can sign up for, which she really enjoys. If she wants to go out with family or to dr appts, she just signs out. She also has been on several short vacations with family without any problems. I love Independence Village of Ankeny because they have dedicated and caring staff. From the Administrator to members of the housekeeping staff, my mom gets the best care. Everyone knows her and makes sure she is well taken care of, both mentally and physically. They are the best!

Everyone has been very friendly so far and they do seem to have a great variety of activities for the residents. We chose this community because it seemed like they gave more care for the money and assisted living was just twice as expensive.
