We put our residents first

Providing exceptional, compassionate care

We view our care team as an extension of our residents’ families. With exceptional staff-to-resident ratios, we have more time to spend delivering individualized care aimed at enhancing quality of life across our diverse range of services. While we cannot change a diagnosis, we can always offer compassion and comfort for the betterment of our residents.

Adding a Personal Touch

At Iowa Jewish Senior Life Center, we are focused on doing the little things to make life more comfortable and memorable for our residents. For most of us, an address or street name conjures up fond memories. With this in mind, we have implemented an innovative method of naming our care areas.

These names were created by our staff to highlight our fondness for the Des Moines region and provide an easy way for residents to identify where they live. It is just one more way we are working to provide a more personal level of care to all we serve.

Such a welcoming community, everyone is so positive. It’s not home, but everyone works for the common good.
