Avoca Lodge Assisted Living Earns Insufficiency Free Survey

Avoca Lodge Assisted Living, affiliated with Avoca Specialty Care and owned and operated by Care Initiatives in West Des Moines, has plenty to celebrate. They’ve recently completed their bi-annual survey based on the Recertification Monitoring Evaluation program conducted by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals (DIA). The results of the survey are an insufficiency free report. This means no deficiencies were reported.

DIA survey teams conduct on-site inspections to assess the quality of care and services provided to residents and tenants.  The recertification is based on tenant/family satisfaction, program history, and on-site monitoring evaluation.

“Our entire facility, including residents, staff, families and volunteers work together as a team to make Avoca Lodge safe and comfortable,” says administrator Charissa Bassett.

Avoca Lodge Assisted Living is a 20-unit apartment where the main purpose is to provide a solution for seniors who require some level of assistance with daily activities, but still have a desire to remain active and maintain a level of daily routine.  Avoca Lodge features a warm and friendly gathering area that supports social interactions with friends and family members. Avoca Lodge also provides ample living space, a comfortable dining area and engaging activities, providing peace-of-mind that assistance is available when needed.

Avoca Lodge is owned and operated by Care Initiatives. Care Initiatives and Care Initiatives Hospice operate 55 skilled nursing, rehabilitation, Alzheimer’s/dementia, assisted living and hospice locations throughout Iowa. For more information about Care Initiatives or Avoca Lodge call 712.343.2400.
