Northcrest Community, a non-profit Life-Care retirement community in Ames, has been providing exceptional care to older adults since 1965.Locally owned and operated, Northcrest is more than a community - it's family. Residents live independently in townhomes and apartments where they can also receive in-house home care if needed. If or when the need arises, care will be provided in our licensed Health Care Center or specialized care for those suffering from Alzheimer's or other types of dementia in the Heartwood House. Through our unique Life-Care program, residents are guaranteed a home for life - no matter what life brings their way.Residents enjoy all the amenities of care-free independent living as well as the ultimate peace of mind and security, knowing that even though their individual circumstances and needs may change, Northcrest will always be their home. With protection from rising health care costs in the future, the decision to join the Northcrest Community is comforting to both residents and their families. No one is ever asked to leave Northcrest because of lack of funds. Many residents have said moving to Northcrest was the best gift they could ever give to their children.
