Mission

Our mission is to provide personalized, compassionate care to improve the quality of life and to retain our client’s independence while allowing them to remain in the safety and security of their own home.

Our Care Team

  • Physician: Clients are encouraged to keep their own primary care physician. We maintain relationships with various area healthcare providers to ensure continuity of care.

  • Nurses: RNs and LPNs on staff assess client conditions, manage medications, perform wound care, and administer select IV medications. RNs formulate, initiate and supervise the client’s plan of care. Nurses provide education to clients and loved ones regarding their recovery, chronic conditions, medications and safety at home.

  • Certified Nursing Assistants: Our CNAs are certified to provide care by the State of Minnesota. These professionals can assist with personal care, bathing, homemaking, meal prep and errands.

  • Physical Therapy: Our team works closely with our therapists in Madelia and Lake Crystal as well as with St. James Area Rehab to provide in-home therapy. Physical therapy (PT) can help increase mobility, strength and endurance to assist clients to regain function.

  • Occupational Therapy: This therapy service assesses and aids clients to adapt their environment to promote independence and safety.
