Nursing and Homemaker
Nursing and Homemaker services are provided to prevent early nursing home placement.
Trained Home Care Aides assist clients with:
- Light housekeeping
- Grocery shopping
- Meal preparation
- Personal care
- Other in-home tasks to help individuals stay safely in their home
Nursing includes teaching and intervention to patients to manage chronic conditions and prevent acute exacerbation of disease processes. Nursing interventions will include medication set up, assessing medication compliance, blood pressure/blood sugar monitoring, venipuncture, general assessments, health /nutrition education and communication with physicians and other health professionals.
A doctor’s order is not required to receive homemaker services. Services require a condition that prevents individuals from doing their own housekeeping tasks.
Fees for Nursing and Homemaker
- Services care paid for privately by the client
- Sliding fee scale is offered for individuals who cannot afford to pay full fee.
- Services may be paid in full by grant if certain income guidelines are met.
Anyone can make a referral to our office.
Admittance of new clients is subject to status of grant funding and staff availability.
Nursing and Homemaker services are funded through a sliding fee and our partnerships with IDPH and Aging Resources of Central Iowa. Basic Homemaker services provided under the Aging Resource grant are provided on a suggested donation basis for people over 60 years of age.
