Independent Living

Calvin West is a quiet, private place to call home, free of the
responsibility of home maintenance. The Calvin West apartments include one or two bedrooms, a full kitchen, some with balconies, some overlooking the courtyard gardens. Heated, enclosed garages are provided.

Stay active on and off campus

In addition to the amenities and full calendar of activities on campus, residents can keep up with activities off campus as well. You can keep a car in our heated, secure garage or use Calvin’s transportation services.

Garden plots, a library, a computer lab, an exercise room, a recreation room, weekly worship service and laundry facilities are
all available on campus.

Each apartment includes a full kitchen. A free meal is served each day of the week for the first six months, with the option for additional meals available.

All buildings are secured and residents have an emergency call system and access to emergency nursing care.

Services and amenities

When we decided it was time to sell our house and find a place to spend the rest of our senior years, we spent days shopping all over Des Moines and the suburbs and then finally came to the conclusion that Calvin Community was the most desirable place to be.
