Map & Directions

Empowered, engaged and collaborative. For decades, these words have been used to describe the individuals who call The Village "home."

Generations Have Called This Home

It’s not an exaggeration to say generations have found a happy home at The Village. We are accustomed to greeting loved ones whose grandparents and parents have been 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.

Welcome to The Village!

The Village is home to residents who are very proud to be here, and to be a part of the greater Indianola community. From the camaraderie of our residents to our relationship to Simpson College and everything that institution has to offer, our campus not only feels like home, but is an enriching community of residents who still have much to offer their city, their state, and the world.

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.

Contribute to the Good Shepherd Fund

No matter which lifestyle you choose, we believe you and your loved one can and will have access to 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, activities and neighbors.
