    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grundy Center

    Grundy Center, which was founded in 1877, is situated just 30 minutes away from the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area. The city is named for Felix Grundy, a 19th-century criminal lawyer who is considered to be among the greatest of his time. Today, the county in which Grundy Center is situated has about 12,000 people, approximately 21 percent of which are over the age of 65.

    The small community of Grundy Center has just one assisted living community. Seniors who are looking for alternative options will find an additional seven in the surrounding area. In the Grundy Center region, as in all of Iowa, assisted living facilities are officially called assisted living programs or residential care facilities, depending on the level of care they provide. Both types of facilities are licensed through the Department of Inspections and Appeals, Health Facilities Division.
