About Green Hills Retirement Community

Welcome to Green Hills Retirement Community, a medium-sized continuing care retirement community in Ames, IA. Green Hills Retirement Community is located at 2205 Green Hills Drive, and offers assisted living services for older adults.

If you’re assessing whether a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) is right for you, Seniorly Gerontologists have created a Care Needs Calculator to support families in their search for the right type of community. CCRC residents may start out living independently in their own house or apartment and then, as they age and require more care, move to assisted living suites, where they'll have access to 24-hour non-medical care, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Many CCRCs also offer memory care for residents with Alzheimer's or dementia diagnoses. This arrangement not only allows residents to stay in familiar environments as they age, it can also help keep couples together. If one partner requires assisted living or memory care, the other will still be able to live with them or right next door. Residents can take advantage of activities to suit everyone from active older adults to those who need more daily care.

Seniorly’s expert Senior Living Advisors can be enormously helpful for families considering the complex decision to move into a continuing care retirement community. This free advisor service can provide exact pricing, schedule tours and evaluate communities. Simply fill out this form to learn more.

More About Green Hills Retirement Community

The Green Hills’ Story

Green Hills Retirement Community sits on a beautiful green 30-acre campus in a relaxed natural wood setting minutes from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. Landscape features include a pond, wildflowers, paved walking trails, a garden, and a therapeutic fountain.

The idea for Green Hills came in 1976 during an ISU Alumni Association brainstorming session about ways to serve ISU alumni. When the feasibility of a retirement community seemed impossible, the Foundation sold the land to three developers and the idea for a retirement community was reborn.

Green Hills was built in 1986. The first townhome residents moved in February 1986 and the midrise apartments opened November 1986.

The following year, the Green Hills Health Care Center opened. In 1988, Life Care Services was asked to manage Green Hills.

And, we have been building for your future ever since.
