Assisted Living Reviews for Independence Village of Ames

I visited this facility

We were looking for a place for my grandma for when she can't handle her home anymore. We loved the atmosphere of Independence Village and what it had to offer. My grandma liked the variety of activities on the calendar and loved that they do weekly outings. They even go to the casino every now and then! The one bedroom they showed us was staged nicely and showed my grandma exactly what she needed to see and eased her mind on what she could actually bring. We didn't get to try to food, but the residents we asked while we were there said it was very good!

I am/was a resident of this facility

We moved in. We get help with some of my wife's daily activities, we get our meals here, and we're not allowed to leave because of the lockdown. The rooms are adequate. We have a two-bedroom with one small bedroom and another room that's even smaller; it's too small for a bed in there. We have a very good-sized living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. They make sure that we eat and watch my wife since she wanders at times. The food is OK, although there are no activities right now. Normally we have an activities director who plans our activities and games of some sort. We have movies once in a while and we have a beauty shop or a barber shop, but they're closed down right now. Somebody comes in and takes care of people's hearing aides, but nobody can come in or out right now.

Our overall experience with having my mother here is very good. Their staff members are all very friendly and we've been very pleased. Her room is very nice, she has a 1-bedroom apartment and she seems very pleased with it. The place is very clean, homey and welcoming, and I just think it's wonderful. She has been happy with the food, I have eaten there a few times and it's good food. I also like how they change the seating arrangements once in a while so she could meet new people.

Hands down the best place. I have never met employees who have cared so much about their job, residents and each other. Logan works very hard to put on amazing events for the residents, community & staff. We truly enjoy all the events and attend all of them.

The community was very good, and they were very friendly. It was a clean and nice community. The dining area was very nice, and the menu was good. I wouldn't mind living there myself. They have a book club, and people come in and do entertainment, so it was very good socially.

I thought it's very nice, but it's assisted living and I'm looking for continuing care. The rooms were very nice. They had a lot of activities and machines for exercise and an activity director, which I was very impressed with. They had meals, laundry, and assistance with meds. The staff was very nice. The residents were very active and pleasant to be around.
