Moving to a retirement community can be a big decision. Here at The Meadows, we want to make the transition as easy as possible! Here are answers to some of our frequently asked questions. If you have a question that is not listed, please contact us and we would be happy to give you more information.
What is independent living?
Independent living makes retirement planning easy! You still maintain the independent lifestyle that you want but without the more cumbersome aspects of living at home. You also have easy access to an active community and planned activities and events to cater to you and allow you to grow and make new friends!
What is assisted living?
Assisted living is for seniors who need some extra help with everyday tasks, but don’t require the extensive medical care of a nursing home. Residents receive personal care assistance and health services as well as social and physical opportunities to stay active as they age.
What kind of security measures are in place in senior living?
Residents and their families can rest assured that our residents are safe at all times. All buildings are secured and have 24-hour staffing. 24-hour emergency response pendants are also available for residents who are at a higher fall risk or have certain medical needs.
Do you allow pets?
We do not currently allow pets, however, pets are more than welcome to visit!
Do you provide transportation?
We provide on-site transportation to activities and appointments. This includes assistance to and from nearby Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics. For any residents who want to bring their car, we also offer attached garages for a separate fee.
What are the benefits of moving to a retirement community?
It can be hard to know when to move to a retirement community or if it is right for you. Here at The Meadows, there are countless benefits for both independent living and assisted living residents. You never have to worry about chores with weekly room cleaning, lawn services, snow removal, and more. A full schedule of physical, social, and spiritual activities keeps you active and engaged in your retirement. Perhaps one of the biggest benefits is our welcoming, caring, and fun staff and residents who will welcome you with open arms!
