How to Choose a Facility

Dignified Senior Living

Comfortable Senior Living Apartments at Great Prices

Here at The Meadows, we strive to provide a variety of options for residents and prospective residents. That’s why we have two separate facilities for both independent senior living and assisted living. Beyond these options, we also have multiple apartment floor plans and sizes to accommodate the budgets of all seniors. We don’t believe that you should be deprived of quality housing because of your budget. You will find that our rents are very competitive and that we offer a comprehensive package of amenities and services. Both of our facilities are located a stone’s throw away from the Iowa Specialty Hospital as well. Your safety, comfort, and well-being are our top priorities. We encourage you to take a virtual tour of our apartments or call us to schedule an in-person tour today!

Choosing the Right Senior Living Facility

 

When choosing a senior living facility, you should first decide what your level of need is. We offer both assisted and independent living options here at The Meadows. But how do you know which is right for you or your loved one? You have to consider your ability to care for yourself first. Do you need assistance getting around? Do you need help in the bathroom? Do you have mobility issues? If so then you are a good candidate for our assisted living community, which provides 24-hour personal emergency care. If you get around pretty well on your own, aren’t prone falls or accidents, and manage all your personal care needs yourself, you would be a good candidate for our independent living community. Here are some other factors to consider when choosing a senior living facility:

  • Cost – Many seniors live on a fixed income, so the cost of rent should be carefully considered before making a choice. Here at The Meadows, our rent rates are determined by floor plan. We offer a wide variety of floor plan options to fit the budgets of any lifestyle. Rent will also depend on any extra amenities and services you choose.
  • Location – As a senior citizen, you may want to be as close as possible to family members and medical facilities. The Meadows is located in Clarion, Iowa, close to local attractions, and a stone’s throw away from the Iowa Specialty Hospital.
  • Culture – Living in a community with people at the same stage of life is important for seniors. So is the culture of the facility itself.  We feel it’s important for our residents to understand what our values are and see what our community is like for themselves. We invite you to come take a tour of our facilities and talk to us.
  • Lifestyle Fit – Does the senior living facility you are considering accommodate your lifestyle? Does it offer activities, comfortable communal spaces, and opportunities for interaction? At The Meadows, we hold regular community activities, provide a cozy fireplace lounge, and organize community excursions to local attractions for our residents.
