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.

Arlington Place at Oelwein
5.0

We're very pleased with our experience with Arlington Place! They were a huge help to us throughout the whole process, and the transition went flawlessly! I really never thought it would go that well! They gave us a lot of advice on how to prepare our loved one for the move and help things go smoothly.

Park Lane Estates in Preston, MN
4.8

Excellent facility. This was a very difficult move for my siblings and me to make with Mom. At 91 she was still very active and living in her own home. A tragic incident where she was struck by a car set her back. That, along with failing eyesite, forced us to have to find a safe home option. She is slowly coming to accept that the move was necessary. The staff at Park Lane have been wonderful to Mom and go out of their way to make her feel welcome and at home.

Wonderful place to entrust your loved ones. They bring in entertainment and therapists to ensure the residents are mentally and physically challenged. They also have lots of daily activities so the days are never boring. My aunt especially likes the bus rides around the area. The staff is always helpful and cheerful.
