WHO WE ARE

Kind, welcoming, and playful. 
Knowledgeable and experienced.
Award-Winning.

Over half of our leadership team has more than 10 years of tenure at Melrose. Think that says a lot? So do we.

From our executive director to our culinary coordinator, from maintenance to marketing to fitness, our staff has an incredible amount of longevity. We think that speaks for itself.

Owned by Des Moines-based Newbury Living, we're one of just two senior living properties under the Newbury family. No big corporate chain here - staff and resident feedback and suggestions are passed on and considered directly by the president and COO. In fact, the majority of our ongoing upgrades and new features have been inspired by our own residents.

ABOUT US: About Us

"Over the past two years my wife Barb and I have come to know well the Melrose Meadows Retirement Community because Barb’s mother and father were residents there. Wanting only the very best for her parents we couldn’t have been happier with the beautiful facility, all the staff, and the loving care they provided. The staff was competent and professional, compassionate and caring, always going over and above what we expected. They treated the residents like their own family. I have worked in healthcare my entire career and can honestly say I have never worked with a finer group of professionals. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars."
