Feels like home, not a hotel.

A great apartment that feels like home. Delicious dining options. Laughter with friends. 
Freedom from upkeep, maintenance and boredom. 
A simple lease, no mysterious fees, and a stellar reputation for over twenty years.
Ready to embrace a new chapter? We're ready to welcome you home to Melrose Meadows.

"Do yourself a favor and don't wait too long to move here."

Bright, private senior apartments for Independent Living and Assisted Living in a quiet neighborhood setting. Just minutes from University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, shopping, and a vibrant downtown, enjoy food, friendship, and maintenance-free retirement living in the heart of Iowa City.

(Oh, and a heck of a lot of fun.)

Ready to say goodbye to home upkeep, property taxes, maybe tasks like cooking and cleaning? Looking to expand your social circle? Enjoy maintenance-free retirement living with endless social opportunities and optional amenities (like housekeeping and meals) in one of our beautiful Independent Living apartments.

Want a little help with daily tasks, like dressing, showering or managing medications? Still want to do what you like and come and go as you please? With staff on site 24/7, one of our bright, private Assisted Living apartments could be the right fit for you.

(This is not a nursing home - you bring your own furniture and are encouraged to be as independent as possible! Melrose Meadows is the only all-inclusive Assisted Living in the area, meaning your rent includes assistance with bathing, dressing, medications, and all daily cares.)

We do not have skilled therapy, long-term care/nursing home, or memory care here at Melrose. But feel free to give us a call, we're happy to help point you in the right direction!
