About Our Des Moines Senior Living Community

Authentically Iowan. True to You.

What does it mean for a retirement community to be “authentically Iowan”? It means we work hard and don’t take shortcuts. It means honesty, integrity and a commitment to genuine, from-the-heart hospitality. Most importantly, being authentically Iowan means being driven by a sense of responsibility for your neighbor’s well-being.

At Deerfield, that’s what keeps us going. We work to set a higher standard for senior living — offering more high-quality choices in our dining, amenities, activities and care options. And as a not-for-profit Lifespace retirement community, our revenue is totally reinvested into improving the lives of the people who matter most — our residents.


Deerfield is a Life Care community

That means lifelong access to truly incredible care, if and when you need it.

You’ll receive:

  • Priority access to assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation care
  • A predictable monthly fee, protecting you from many of the rising costs of care
  • Substantial savings compared to the average cost of long-term care
