Reviews & Awards At Independence Village of Waukee
For 40 years, our communities have been considered the best in senior living by residents, families and community members alike.
I stayed in skilled care for 10 days. I was treated like a queen. The CNAs, nurses, therapists, and management are wonderful! They treat you like family. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Ellen, Alicia, Mary, Mikayla, and Jesse for all the great care.

Mom moved from IV Assisted Living to Memory care late last year. She was very well cared for in AL, but the isolation was unhealthy for her. Since moving to Memory Care, she has improved both mentally and physically. We attribute that to the attention and care the staff has given her since we have not been able to ourselves due to the pandemic. We have had to completely trust the staff in Memory Care and they have shown mom and her family all the care and kindness that I believe they would show to their own family. Mom is now involved in activities and she socializes at mealtime. When AL recommended that mom move to Memory Care, we were hesitant that she needed the extra care. We are thankful that they made the recommendation as we are certain now that it helped save her life. The care and respect that both AL and Memory Care have provided mom is priceless to us. Every step of the way, they have kept all of moms family involved in her activities, mental well being and her health. We rest much easier knowing that the nursing staff and all the caregivers truly care about mom. I highly recommend Independence Village to anyone looking for a safe, secure and nurturing environment for themselves or a loved one.

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.

We have been extremely pleased with the friendly and caring staff. We visit our friend several times a week and the care is excellent. Room and laundry are kept clean and neat. Our friend is happier than she has been in years. There are a number of activities to engage residence and keep them active. Overall we highly recommend you consider this facility for your loved ones.

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!

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.
