With a strong economy, competitive tax rate, beautiful surroundings, and vibrant amenities, Greater Fort Dodge makes a fantastic retirement choice.
Senior living choices abound, and that range from independent townhomes to apartment-style living. Those who require additional care can relocate to assisted living facilities, skilled rehabilitative therapy, extended-stay nursing care, and take advantage of aquatic therapy, and adult day care services.
Retirees also enjoy our community’s many activities, including opportunities to volunteer, outdoor physical fitness, and social clubs. We also promote education centers offering continued education like the Citizen’s Central Senior Center (c2), Elderbridge Agency on Aging, Iowa Central Community College, and programs at the public library.
Seniors can also get involved in the community through programs like Foster Grandparents, RSVP (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program), BRIDGES mentoring program, Pride in Community Appearance (PICA), and other local civic and church groups.
