Johnston, IA (May 26, 2016) – Edencrest at Green Meadows, a new 64-unit assisted living and memory care community located in Johnston, welcomed business and community leaders to celebrate its ribbon cutting with the Johnston Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday afternoon. The community, an $11.4 million investment, was developed by Hubbell Realty Company. Edencrest at Green Meadows is the second community under Hubbell’s Edencrest brand. Two additional communities are planned for Beaverdale in Des Moines and Ankeny – both of which will open in 2017.

“We would like to give a warm welcome to our residents who are making their home at Edencrest,” stated Rick Tollakson, Hubbell Realty Company President and CEO. “Edencrest is a natural extension of the successful and diverse housing options Hubbell provides across Central Iowa. Through our strong partnership with Senior Housing Management, we are able to couple Hubbell’s housing expertise with experienced assisted living management and enhanced care.”

Edencrest at Green Meadows is a certified assisted living community through the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. It features private apartments as well as common areas including a central dining room, exercise room, beauty salon and private gathering areas for family and friends. It also boasts one of the best views in town, with a large deck that overlooks the beltway and bike trail.

"We are thrilled Hubbell chose this site in Johnston," said Paula Dierenfeld, mayor of Johnston. "I can't think of a more beautiful place in our community."

Dierenfeld also shared that many residents of Johnston are looking for a place they can move to but still remain in the community. "Edencrest allows our residents to stay right here during this assisted living phase of their lives."

A unique combination of housing, support services, personal assistance and health care is delivered in a residential environment that is staffed with trained professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Edencrest at Green Meadows also has a full-time Registered Nurse, Community Manager, Life Enrichment Coordinator and Culinary Coordinator.

"We have a lot of fun here," stated Allen Phillips, Senior Housing Management President. "We believe these can be the best years of our residents' lives." Phillips continued with a story about a resident who had never been to prom and the staff recently made her dream come true - limo and all.

The new community also offers a specialized, secured environment for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. The secured memory care is designed to meet the needs of individuals who require supervision and/or assistance with activities of daily living through daily programming.

Tours of Edencrest at Green Meadows are available by appointment or by walk-in.
