Engaged Elder Care

At Klein Center, we know that our success can only be measured by the comfort, attention, and accommodation we provide our residents. That is why we provide various services to ensure that residents not only have access to everything they need, but that they truly maintain an independence at their new home with us.

Banking Services

Elders may open interest-bearing accounts at the Klein Center with a check for any amount. The money may be used for hair care, newspaper subscriptions, and other incidental charges. Quarterly statements are given to elders or sent to responsible parties. They also are available by request in the office. More information is available from social work.

Donations & Memorials

Memorials and other donations help provide items and services that benefit elders, such as electronic pianos and “scoot chairs,” which allow elders to propel themselves while sitting in a chair.

For more information about donations, please contact social work or the administrator.

Hair Care

The beauty shop is in Town Center. Independent stylists provide services. Their hours and fees are posted in the shop. Payment may be deducted from banking accounts. Elders’ personal stylists also may use the shop. For more information, contact Social Services.


The library is next to the Klein Center entrance. Elders can borrow books, audiobooks, and magazines, and take them to their rooms.


The Hawk Eye can be delivered to you daily. Call 319-754-8461 to subscribe.


Regularly scheduled activities such as games, exercise classes, and religious programs enrich elders’ lives. Family members are welcome to participate.

Special activities include:

  • Animal visits

  • Birthday parties

  • Educational programs

  • Happy hours

  • Holiday celebrations

  • Klein University

  • Learning Circles – Elders meet with their household coordinator and Social Services to discuss what is going well and where improvements can be made

  • Multicultural and intergenerational events

  • Outings such as baseball games, seeing Christmas lights and fishing

  • Senior Prom

Lost items

If a personal item is missing, please talk to your household coordinator or nurse manager.

Meeting Rooms

The Gathering Hall and other rooms are available for private family gatherings and parties. To schedule a room, please talk to the receptionist at the front desk.

Recognizing Caregivers

You can fill out a You’re a Great Person card, which is available at the reception desk in Town Center, send a thank-you note to a caregiver or write a letter to the administrator. Recognition is appreciated. Staff cannot accept cash or gifts valued at more than $25.

Religious Services & Spiritual Care

A chaplain who does not represent a specific denomination works with elders to meet their spiritual, emotional and religious needs. On Tuesday afternoons, area clergy leads non-denominational chapel services, and communion services for all denominations are offered on Sundays. Roman Catholic rosary, led by volunteers, is prayed every Friday. Mass and communion services are offered monthly.
