"My wife and I enjoyed Meals on Wheels together for many years before she needed more care at Wesley Acres. Now that I've moved to a Central apartment not far from Stoddard Health Center, we can share meals once again and see each other every day. We are blessed by being among people who care so much about us."
Don Boyvey, Des Moines
"Short-term rehab at Wesley Acres helped me go from 'Why did I do this (surgery)?' to 'I'm ready to go finish this rehab at home!'"
