    My father recently became a resident of Illahee Hills and I can't speak more highly about the resident managers and all of the staff at the facility. They take time with the residents and are kind and sensitive to their needs. The facility is safe, clean and very welcoming. I live across country and I feel confident that dad is in the best possible location.

Description of Illahee Hills


Perched atop a rolling hill overlooking a beautiful countryside, Illahee Hills offers you a charming view to call your own. Nestled in a cozy corner northwest of Des Moines, we're just a few miles from the picturesque bridges of Madison County and even closer to Saylor Lake. And if you feel like getting out for the day, you're mere minutes from museums, live theatre, wonderful shopping and the finest dining the capital has to offer. Come home to a community of friends that feels more like family at Illahee Hills.

Illahee Hills is a proud member of Holiday Retirement, a network of more than 300 independent senior communities. Since 1971, we have led the industry with innovative programs that address the complete lifestyle needs and interests of seniors.

Featured Amenities

A key ingredient to living a long and healthy life is eating well. Each meal at our community is made from scratch by our chefs, and can be enjoyed three times daily in our dining room. A private dining room is also available for celebrating special events with friends and family.

Illahee Hills offers a wide choice of apartment floor plans to suit any lifestyle. Residents are free to decorate their apartments as they see fit and can even bring in a pet to make their new accommodations feel more like a home.

Available Services

If you take a close look around our community, you may notice that a few of our residents stand out. These are our Community Managers, who live on site to provide 24-hour support and security. You'll see them sharing a meal with residents in our dining room, attending one of our social events and taking the time to make sure each and every one of our residents feel welcomed and included.

We understand that each individual is unique and that needs may change over time. Holiday does not provide any health care services. However, residents are welcome to receive services from any outside home health care provider of their choice to help them continue enjoying life at our community.

While moving into a new home can be a daunting decision, residents at Illahee Hills can rest assured that they are moving into the finest senior living community in the area.
