Community That Cares
Community Life at Edencrest at The Tuscany | Altoona, Iowa
Living With Friends
We’ve crafted a lifestyle for seniors that engages mind, body, and spirit. We’ve built a community that brings everyone together. We embrace and honor each individual by learning their stories and bringing their dreams to life.
Share a laugh and a conversation over a delicious meal. Create memories with friends on a town trip to see the show, or during a class with your neighbors. Community life at Edencrest Tuscany is filled with special moments to be enjoyed together.
At Your Service
A cheerful greeting by name. A bright smile and a comforting pat on the back. Your coffee and newspaper, just the way you like it, at just the right time.
We call it rolling out the Red Carpet—it’s our attention to detail and personalized service that makes each resident and guest at Edencrest Tuscany feel valued and cared for. We aim to treat everyone who comes through our doors as though they are the most important person in the world.

Dreams Come True
There’s no time like the present to try a new adventure, revisit memories, or bond with friends and family. Your dream may be big, or small. It may be riding a horse for the first time, attending a sporting event with grandkids, or revisiting a childhood home.
Your dreams are important to us because they are important to you. They are what make you unique.
Our signature Dare To Dream program recognizes the special hopes and aspirations of our residents–and then makes them a reality! We aim to make at least one resident’s dream come true each month in our community.

Take Flight Each Day
Staying involved in meaningful activities every day keeps people happy and healthy. The Finest Living Years or FLY program is our personalized approach that encourages and inspires each resident to thrive.
We focus on our residents’ histories, accomplishments, lifestyles, hobbies, interests, and dreams–and use what we learn to craft a customized plan to keep each community member:
- Active in body and mind
- Engaged in the community
- As capable as possible
Stories From Our Community
Ken spent 42 years as a University Professor and during that time he served as the official bell ringer for the university’s annual outdoor track and field event. Ken and his wife Betty are still avid fans of track and field, and were excited when Jaybird’s Dare To Dream program offered them the opportunity to attend last year’s meet. While there, Ken reunited with many of the officials he worked with at past events, and they helped make his dream come true – ringing the track meet bell one more time.
Merlin, or Senator Hulse, as he’s known around the community, enjoyed his Dare To Dream where he was honored by his high school alma mater for the countless hours he has committed to supporting non-profit organizations over the years. Merlin even wore his 1941 high school sweater to the ceremony where he received his Service Award. Thoughtful as always, he remembered his friends back home at Prairie Hills, and made sure to bring home enough cake to share. It was a terrific day and Merlin shared his pride in being recognized at coffee hour.
For a decade, Jerry was a dedicated snowplow driver for Linn County. He especially loved removing snow on Ellis Boulevard, along the beautiful and picturesque Cedar River. For Jerry’s Dare To Dream, we partnered with the City of Cedar Rapids to highlight Jerry’s commitment to plowing by taking part in their Paint a Plow program.
For Jerry’s Plow, we created an image of a train in honor of Jerry’s railroad career together with snowflakes and a picture of the Cedar River to remind him of his favorite spot to clear. Jerry was delighted with his beautifully painted plow and the City invited Jerry to ride along on his plow any day.
