What Living Independently Looks Like at Meth-Wick

Retirement living comes in plenty of different shapes and sizes. At Meth-Wick alone, residents can choose between five different styles of living.

For many, independent living is the best way to keep up with your lifestyle without the demands of owning a home. All your home maintenance needs are handled by our capable Meth-Wick staff. Say goodbye to appliance maintenance and lawn care and say hello to the life you’ve been planning for years.

Meth-Wick has a variety of options for living an active and healthy senior lifestyle as part of our vibrant campus community.

Easy Elegance is Yours for the Choosing



Oakwood is a new condominium living option at Meth-Wick Community breaking ground in spring 2016. It will be an independent living option for seniors who value their privacy but appreciate having the option of on-campus dining and programs for the mind, body and spirit.

Oakwood will:

  • Be a three-story building with six units per floor, ranging in size from 1,300 to 1,822 square feet.
  • Allow residents to personalize their homes, from appliances to cabinetry to flooring. They can move walls or change the layout, as long as it meets construction guidelines.
  • Have some homes that include a sunroom.
  • Have underground parking to protect your car from those Iowa winters.
  • Have access to Meth-Wick’s network of care if and when their health needs should change.

Future Oakwood residents Mary and Tom Nurre had never visited our campus but decided to drive through out of curiosity. “It was simply beautiful,” says Mary. “We couldn’t believe such a place existed inside of Cedar Rapids!” Being the planners they are, the Nurres began to consider the idea of moving. “We love our home,” says Mary. “But there comes a time for all of us when we don’t want to do the house upkeep anymore.”

In addition to the fact they could personalize their home, the Nurres really liked that Oakwood is located close to The Manor, where they could enjoy the many social activities at Meth-Wick.
