DEWITT, Iowa – Fieldstone of DeWitt, a new residential community for people 55 and older, opened its doors to residents on Tuesday, June 28.
Fieldstone is owned and operated by WellSpire, a partnership of WesleyLife of Johnston, Iowa — Iowa’s largest non-profit provider of health and well-being services for older adults — and Genesis Health System of Davenport.
Offering assisted living, memory care, short-term rehabilitation, and long-term nursing care, Fieldstone is designed to enhance quality of life and a sense of purpose and meaning for residents, clients and team members. The campus has capacity for 91 residents and will employ about 125 team members.
The community is the first in Clinton County to offer programming inspired by the Blue Zones, areas of the world in which people live far longer than average. It replaces a traditional “nursing-home” model of care with one that focuses on person-directed living, which places individual preference and choice at the forefront of any plan for services and care, ensuring respect for the uniqueness of the resident or client.
Fieldstone, located at 1301 Maynard Way in DeWitt, replaces the current Westwing Place, which offered short-term rehabilitation and long-term nursing care.
Westwing Place Administrator Chelsey Killean has assumed that role at Fieldstone, with all residents making the move on June 28.
A grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place later this year.
