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.

I was treated like a queen during my rehab stay. The nurses, CNAs, therapists, and management treated me like family. It is an amazing place to be!

MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care at Jordan Creek in West Des Moines, IA
5.0

My mother moved into MorningStar Assisted Living 3 1/2 months ago. She stated she is very happy here and "You couldn't find a better place". The staff is compassionate. Needs are quickly addressed by management. It's obvious they care. I should add that the facility is beautiful, the meals are great and she enjoys the many activities. Although my brother and I are still very involved in her life, the family rests better knowing mom has the help she needs.
