Generations Have Called This Home

Empowered, engaged, and collaborative. For decades, these words have been used to describe the individuals who call The Village "home." We are accustomed to greeting loved ones whose grandparents and parents were residents right here in our community. Team members are also part of our history, with several having been with us for more than 20 years and some who are now residents. What sets us apart?

  • A unique relationship with Simpson College, where residents can take classes and attend cultural events
  • An emphasis on wellness that goes beyond physical exercise
  • A full continuum of care, with priority access for our residents

Community Living

As a WesleyLife Community for Healthy Living,  The Village is about finding purposeful ways to make the most of each day. With a variety of lifestyle options, The Village invites you to live your best life — one that focuses not on limitations, but on possibilities as you stay engaged in the greater community, your neighborhood, your city, and your world. Welcome to the most exciting time to be exactly who you are.

Welcome to
The Village!

The Village’s beautiful, walkable acres are tucked into a quiet neighborhood near Simpson College in Indianola, just south of the Des Moines metropolitan area. Through its relationship with the highly regarded Simpson, the community’s residents can access an array of sporting events, classes, cultural and creative arts, and amenities including tennis and pickleball courts. Residents of The Village live vibrant, active lives and support the greater community in a number of ways, and our team members routinely create for our residents opportunities to pursue joy in all they do. Schedule your tour today; we’d love to welcome you to The Village!

The WesleyLife Promise

We make a promise to our residents: If they deplete their financial resources through no fault of their own, they will never be asked to leave their homes with us or experience a reduction in the degree of care they receive. Assistance from the Good Shepherd Fund at The Village can make a world of difference to a resident in need.

No matter which lifestyle you choose, we believe you and your loved one can and will access the rich experiences you’ve come to appreciate in life. The various lifestyle offerings at The Village are more integrated than you might find outside of the WesleyLife family of communities, meaning you are always surrounded by events, programs, and neighbors.

Care to head over to campus?

Our relationship with Simpson College is unique and runs deeply through our community. The college is just a two-block walk away, and residents can audit classes at no charge. They use the college's tennis courts and appreciate music performances by vocal and instrumental artists and ensembles. Plus, many retired professors and their spouses make The Village their home.
