Iowa is a quintessential midwestern state with a lot of small-town charm and open country, with assisted living facilities spread throughout the state.

The state is very much in the heartland of the United States as its bordered by six different states, making it a convenient place for out-of-state family members to visit their elderly loved ones who are staying in assisted living communities in Iowa. It makes for quick travel to a number of other bigger cities in connecting states regardless of the direction.

The Hawkeye State is driven by its farm and dairy land, as well as a number of manufacturing industries. Outdoor recreation like hunting and fishing are popular with the state's retirees.

Iowa has over 3 million residents. In comparison the rest of the Midwest, it has more people compared to Nebraska and Kansas, yet less than Ohio and Illinois.

Iowa also lacks any sizable metropolitan area which many find comforting, as assisted living communities in the state are notoriously small, quiet, friendly and have very little traffic.
