Nursing Homes in Iowa

Overview of Nursing Homes in Iowa

Iowa is often referred to as the “Land of the Rolling Prairie” due to the immense fertile plains that cover the region. The state is famous for its farms, growing crops such as corn and soybeans. Iowa is more than just farmland, however – it’s home to many quaint, rural towns as well as larger cities such as Sioux City and Des Moines. Its varied landscape, relatively low cost of living, and proximity to major Midwestern cities like Chicago and Minneapolis make Iowa a convenient location to call home and a great place to retire.

There are more than 70 nursing homes in Iowa. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in Iowa to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

According to Genworth, the median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in Iowa is about $6,900. The median monthly price for a semi private room is around $6,400.

Independence Village of Waukee was a very nice place, but it was just too expensive for me. Everyone there was so friendly. They offer a lot of fun activities to stay busy.

It was an amazing facility. I don't think I can really say anything bad about it, except for they need to have better communication with the aides. I don't feel like some of them were properly trained on...

In the last 18 months I’ve toured many senior living options to find a place for my mom. Bickford in West Des Moines didn’t hit my radar right away and I wish it had. The staff is kind, the nurse has been...
