We’re All About Relationships!
Welcome to Chautauqua Guest Homes! Our corporation serves individuals in the Charles City/Northeast Iowa area, providing comprehensive and high quality long term care. Chautauqua Guest Homes is the parent organization for Riverside Senior Living, 11th Street Chautauqua (Guest Home #2), and 9th Street Chautauqua (Guest Home #3). Chautauqua Guest Homes originated in 1961 when Dr. Emmet Ayers, a Charles City surgeon, experienced a personal need for a safe home for his own aging parents. The word “Chautauqua” means a gathering of friends and Dr. Ayers’ vision was nursing facilities focused on relationships.
Today, more than fifty years later, the corporation is still family owned and operated but the services provided are modern and constantly evolving based of cutting edge research in the provision of high quality care to individuals. Chautauqua Guest Homes have been recognized and received awards statewide and nationally as providers of quality care.
