About 3801 Grand A Newbury Living Community

In the late 1980’s, James Levy was inspired to bring assisted living to Des Moines after seeing communities on the East and West coasts. In 1994, 3801 Grand was opened and was the first assisted living facility in the area. Seeing another unmet demand for luxury independent living, the Grand Suites were opened in 1999. Before his passing in 2008, James began the process of converting a portion of the assisted living building into a memory care wing that was opened in 2009. 3801 Grand remains locally owned by the Levy family and locally operated by Newbury Living. line&para Located on picturesque Grand Avenue in Des Moines, 3801 Grand is in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city. The north and south of Grand neighborhoods house some of the city’s most elegant, stately homes. Ingersoll Avenue, just a block away, is the city’s epicenter for revitalization efforts and development of small business that include restaurants, boutiques, and unique multi-use buildings. Our 3801 Grand community is only five minutes from downtown entertainment venues and major medical centers.

In the kitchens of 3801 Grand it is our philosophy to offer fresh, homemade food every day. Just as you would have in your own kitchen, the simplest of foods are prepared with great care.

No worries, a variety of fresh fruit is available year-round for residents' enjoyment here in our community.
