Independent Living in Iowa

Iowa's independent living communities offer a balance between compassionate senior care services and maintaining the independence of residents as they continue their active lifestyle. Independent living communities are located throughout the state of Iowa, from Des Moines to Iowa City with each offering different amenities and services to their residents. The average cost of residence in an independent living facility in Iowa ranges between $2000 and $2600 each month, though there may be additional charges from the facility/community. This cost may vary based on the city or surrounding area, the type of unit an individual selects, and the services that the facility offers, and Medicare insurance may offer a potential cost solution to a person who is eligible. While moving into an independent living or retirement community can be a major decision for seniors and their families, comparing all the information on available options can help people find the best place for their needs.


What is Independent Living?

Independent living communities are senior living communities (designated for residents above a specific age) that offer residents a balance between independence and support in living their daily lives. These facilities typically offer private apartments or housing units, as opposed to nursing homes which may only offer residents a private room. Independent living communities also offer their residents with services and amenities, including on-site dining, transportation services, and social activities in many cases. While some independent living facilities may offer assisted living for individuals with disabilities, complex health histories, or memory loss, these are not necessarily the case at each independent living facility; in many cases, they may not be offered at all. Individuals should as the staff at a given Iowa location whether or not these programs are offered or at what additional cost they are offered.
