About Western Home Communities

Welcome to Western Home Communities, a large continuing care retirement community in Cedar Falls, IA. Western Home Communities is located at 420 E 11th St, 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. To learn more about what it’s like to be a member of this community, read our family and resident reviews of Western Home Communities.

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 Western Home Communities

The Evangelical Association determined in 1903 to build a home for aged church members in one of the denomination’s western states. During the next eight years, board members considered and rejected nine sites in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois. Finally, in 1911, an apparent gift from heaven arrived from an Iowa family.

Henry Pfeiffer, Jr., and Annie Merner attended the German Evangelical Church at 9th and Clay Streets in Cedar Falls, and married in 1882. Henry ran a successful downtown drug store with his brother Gus before moving to St. Louis in 1891 and starting Pfeiffer Chemical Company, later to become Warner-Lambert Pharmaceuticals. Henry’s father died in 1903 and his mother in 1908. Three years later, he and Annie offered the family farmstead, at right, and $20,000 to the Evangelical Association for building The Western Old People’s Home.

John G. Ralston of Waterloo designed the building, a near copycat of his earlier design for the Chickasaw County Home in New Hampton. Ralston also served as architect for Kingsley Elementary School in Waterloo; the Cattle Congress Hippodrome (now McElroy Auditorium); and the redesign of The Black Hawk Hotel in Cedar Falls.

Bad management poor quality of nurses staff listens to air buds instead of residents even the nurse cell phones with staff takes pictures harrassement against the older staff they never get a breaks. Staff harassing other staff at work on their cell phones. Favoritism on who gets in trouble or not. Staff slammed doors on other staff needing help . Understaffed med errors. Nurses ignoring to check up on residents unless state is there than they act as if everyone do the majority of the needs. No communication
