Simply put, we're transforming the aging experience so people live longer, healthier lives. By focusing on each person's abilities and strengths–rather than their limitations–we believe we can impact the healthspan of older adults. Ignited by a passion to inspire older adults to live healthy, meaningful lives, we reach out with our ministries which include: independent and assisted living, rehabilitation, memory support and services including home care, adult day, home-delivered meals, hospice and transportation. As a nonprofit organization guided by Christian compassion, we were founded than 66 years ago as a place for aging Methodist ministers and their spouses to call home.
Today, our services touch more than 12,000 older adults in Iowa annually being delivered by 1,200 part- and full-time passionate team members throughout the state with a focus on creating healthier and longer lives.
