Additional Assistance
Edencrest Retirement Communities  are certified Assisted Living and Memory Care facilities by the state of Iowa. That means we are able to provide assistance with resident’s Activities of Daily Living. Some residents my find they do not require any assistance, others may want medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, hygiene or ambulation. Our unique program allows us to bill for ONLY the services the resident needs. Prior to move in our nurse will complete an assessment with each resident to identify what services are needed. This will allow us to create an Individualized Service Plan.

Enjoy your retirement – you’ve earned it.  Contact us today for more information.


Respite Stays

Our Respite Program is designed for individuals who need supervision and/or services for a short period of time, typically a minimum of three days and a maximum of 30 days. Your respite stay services include all of the same services one would receive as a resident in our community. Edencrest at Green Meadows offers this program to those who meet our move-in criteria and is ideal for those who have a caregiver out of town, a spouse in the hospital, someone who needs additional recuperation time from a hospital stay, or simply to determine if assisted living is the right decision for an individual on a long term basis. Our respite suite is beautifully furnished and has all the comforts of home.
A respite stay does not require the one time Lifestyle fee but a per day respite fee is required.
*If the individual decides to make Edencrest at Green Meadows their home, at that time all fees apply.
