About Glen Oaks Alzheimer's Special Care Center

Founded in 2007, Glen Oaks Alzheimer’s Special Care Center has been providing the best quality Memory Care services to the residents of Waukee, Urbandale, Johnston, West Des Moines, Clive, Windsor Heights and Ankeny.

When the time comes to transition a loved one to a Memory Care community, we know how difficult the decision making process can be with regard to choosing the right one.

The caring and compassionate team at Glen Oaks Alzheimer’s Special Care Center is here to support families every step of the way. Call us with any questions. We'd love to be a resource for you as you navigate this journey. Every one of our residents is treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve. Our at-home atmosphere is very comforting to them and their families. The building itself was designed with Memory Care in mind.

The best way to evaluate a community is to experience it firsthand. Please stop by anytime to take a look around. We look forward to seeing you.

What Makes Us Special

Our success (and the reason residents and family members alike love our communities) is due to our award-winning SPARK care program. This research-based approach is inspired by Montessori Methods and is key to providing life-changing services to residents. SPARK focuses on engagement, a social lifestyle, and inclusion within the community at large. The SPARK method is based on the teachings and research of Maria Montessori and Dr. Cameron J. Camp and is proven to significantly increase engagement, improve skills and give a sense of meaning and purpose to all despite deficits. Our communities utilize special assessment tools which go beyond traditional healthcare assessments to focus on what the person can do, rather than what they cannot. SPARK places ultimate focus on supporting our residents’ ideas, choices, and independence. We empower residents to create a community that speaks to them. Our staff foster the natural spark within each individual by encouraging new ideas and helping to make these ideas a reality.
