I love living at The Shores! I participate in many of the activities and outings, even the travel club. Climate controlled, indoor parking, and the fact that I don’t have to take care of a lawn or shovel a driveway means I can spend my time the way I want to—especially during Iowa cold winters. The Shores is non-profit which means they are constantly investing in residents and the property. I feel I am valued here and have made significant friendships.



We’re so happy we made the decision to move home to The Shores. The entire staff makes you feel they are there for you. No matter what, you are treated like a special person. We love our apartment, get along with our new family and look forward to our new life in our new home.
