The Edgewater community campus in West Des Moines includes 50 acres of natural beauty framed by lush natural areas, manicured gardens, and lively water features with tumbling falls and natural ponds. Offering a full continuum of care — including independent living, assisted living, memory support, long-term care, and short-term rehabilitation — Edgewater is a WesleyLife Community for Healthy Living.
Your Days, Spent Your Way
Welcome to Edgewater! A concierge is on hand to assist with whatever your needs may be. Dinner — and every meal, for that matter — is served in delicious style. New friends converge for drinks, wandering over from their villas or in from their apartment homes. And later? Dance to the music of a visiting band, enjoy a lecture from a local historian, or watch a show in the performing arts center.
Welcome to Edgewater!
Edgewater is far more than a beautiful campus and grounds. We’re a community filled with residents who have much to give to the greater community around them and commit to leaving the world a better place than they found it. We all have a need for purpose and meaning in our lives, and that doesn’t stop when we reach a certain age. For Edgewater residents, every day is an opportunity to do something good in the world.
At Edgewater, we focus on holistic health. That means our programming is designed to celebrate mind, body, and spirit. Our lifestyle options provide the vibrancy and peace of mind you and your family deserve. And our compassionate and clinically excellent approach to care is recognized across the region. We welcome older adults to experience the Edgewater lifestyle!
