Write Your Next Chapter
The first half of your life can feel like a prewritten script. You might have focused all your energy on parenting, marriage, or your career, leaving little time for yourself. Endless responsibilities — weeding the lawn, replacing that leaky refrigerator, finding time to shop for dinner — made it difficult to squeeze as much joy from life as you deserve. Conversely, the second half of your life can be all your own.
You’ve worked hard to be here. Why not take a break to focus on what matters most to you? The right senior living community in West Des Moines will do the heavy lifting for you. At Edgewater, our focus on holistic, maintenance-free living saves you time and energy, giving you the opportunity to prioritize your passions. We tend to the small frustrations and chores that can distract you from living life on your terms. The result is a fuller, richer life without the hassle of home maintenance.
All of our Communities for Healthy Living can launch new dreams and next acts. Residents embrace new hobbies, revisit the passions they thought they lost, cultivate new relationships, and deepen their existing connections. We believe this low-stress lifestyle is the secret ingredient in the recipe for staying active and healthy, and the data proves it.
According to the National Institute on Health, exercise and social connections may help prevent dementia. An active lifestyle can help you live longer, and improve your mental health. We’ve integrated a focus on holistic health into every service we offer, making it easy to make healthier choices that enhance your life.
