Assisted Living

Edencrest Retirement Communities are certified Assisted Living and Memory Care communities 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.

We offer state-certified Assisted Living apartments for those who are looking to live life to the fullest at any stage of retirement. Our Assisted Living program is designed with our residents’ wishes in mind. From the restaurant-style meals we prepare in-house, to the activities on our life enrichment calendar of events, our program is completely resident-driven. Pair this consideration with our individualized health care services and you have the ultimate choice for senior care and housing in the Des Moines area.
