You've got a lot of living to do

Our goal is to make care accessible to seniors in Ankeny, with the ability to stay close to family and friends and develop an incredible support system of new and old relationships. As you grow older, your health can change much more rapidly than in your younger years, often requiring different levels of care and specialized attention. With our onsite doctors, we can track your health, or the health of a loved one, to make sure you are receiving proper care.

The Bridges combines the freedom of living with the added benefit of an attentive staff and all-included services to make daily life easier and more manageable. You’ve worked hard all your life. And you don’t plan to slow down any time soon. But,a little help wouldn’t hurt. Maybe it’s time to trade that lawn mower for some extra time to learn something new.

It’d be nice to have friends at the ready to play cards, take a stroll or hit the dance floor. Share a meal. Try on a new hobby. Plan an adventure.
Sound good? We should meet.

She is surrounded by staff that really are compassionate and hard working individuals. They dedicate their time making puzzles, arts and crafts. I’ve been to other care centers that haven’t come close to this level of cleanliness, love and compassion.
