We are a continuing care retirement community.

We are a senior living community in Ames, IA (outside of Des Moines), and we offer four levels of living: independent living, assisted living, short-term rehab, and long-term care. We don’t like to think of ourselves as a typical senior living community or a nursing home — we’re a family. Every resident is treated with care and served with a smile every day.

At Northridge Village, our staff has a philosophy of care that is implemented into the everyday operations. Our philosophy is to include dignity, quality, choices, respect and community into what we provide every day. We always strive to fulfill our vision using the value statement as a guide.
