Place For Mom Best of Senior Living 2022>
Our family made the difficult decision to help mom and dad sell their beautiful new home and downsize to a more manageable residence about two years ago. And while the process certainly had plenty of emotional ups and downs, we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work together—parents, children, and even grandchildren—through the sorting, purging, and setting up a new home experience. We are extraordinarily grateful to have found Independence Village in Pella for mom and dad. While their two-bedroom apartment is certainly smaller than their previous home, we’ve worked together to create a very cozy, comfortable, and manageable new homebase for them. All along the way, the genuinely remarkable and caring staff members—every single one of them—have been astoundingly accommodating, uplifting, encouraging, and wonderfully resourceful at every turn. The entire facility is spacious, tidy and clean, beautifully appointed, and bright and cheery. Activities and programming are creatively curated every week, and there is never a shortage of entertaining things to do and places to go, all organized and executed by the crackerjack staff. The title of this review is not hyperbole; I fully expect to live at Independence Village when the time comes for me to downsize to a more manageable home. Every time I walk into the building, I’m deeply satisfied and gratified to have such a terrific retirement community so close to the truly amazing town I’ve claimed as my own since moving here to attend college in 1980. I give Independence Village my highest recommendation, and I urge you and your family to visit and chat with the staff and residents to see if it’s a good match for you as well. I predict you’ll love what you discover there.

The Independence Village family is the best way to describe all who give of themselves to others here. Everyone is friendly, thoughtful, skilled, and professional. Most importantly they care from the heart. They treat all of our respective family members as though they were their own. I have developed a trust in them and feel at ease knowing my loved one is loved and safe.

The buildings and grounds are well kept. They always look good and sell good. They staff is friendly and willing to listen and to try and give residents and their families what they would like to see happen. Mom's apartment is perfect. It was very fresh and clean when she moved in to it. We love to visit. Staff and other residence enjoy it when we spend time with everyone not just our mom. Mom loves it here. She loves spending time with her new friends, she likes the staff a lot and loves her apartment. Everyone is very upbeat and helpful.

I have always loved it here. I was ready to move in when I came to see the place. Everyone loves my dog as if it's their own. How nice to have friends who became family when you didn't expect it.

I am very pleased with how the staff looks after my mother. I do not think you could assemble a better group of individuals to run a facility. The food goes way beyond my expectations. I'm looking forward to being able to dine there again. You guys are my heroes. The apartments are just the right size and well maintained. The cleaning staff is excellent.

There is so much available to the residents including wonderful meals in the dining room and other activities within the facility. No one should be bored or lonely or hungry with everything that is provided there. We were very comfortable knowing that our family member was in the best place that she could be.

As a family member of a current resident, the one thing that has been the most comforting and priceless is the positive relationships I have formed with the staff. Everyone has been so helpful, encouraging, positive, approachable, and sincere. If you are considering Storypoint for yourself or a loved one, get to know the staff, all of them! They really do have the residents best interests at heart!
