Activities and Events

Lead an Active Lifestyle

Northcrest retirement community, nestled in the heart of Ames, Iowa, has a broad array of enriching activities and events. Our active senior living communities, both assisted living, and independent living promote active aging and personal growth. We place an emphasis on choices not only when it comes to senior housing options, but also when it comes to activities. Our residents have a wide range of activities and events to choose from so we have something for everyone! 

Our welcoming community is full of diverse, interesting people who have spent their lives achieving, exploring, and traveling. At Northcrest, you'll continue to nurture connections to family and friends while also continuing to learn and grow through new pursuits and interesting challenges. You can pick and choose any number of activities to suit your own unique interests. For group activities outside of the community, we provide transportation services for all residents. Our safe and courteous drivers provide door-to-door service for shopping, sporting events, social outings, and other sponsored trips.
