Care Initiatives

Skilled Nursing

Care Initiatives offers around the clock nursing care, when you need it most.

Care Initiatives offers long- and short-term care for individuals who need more assistance than an at-home caregiver can provide. As the largest non-profit senior health care provider in the state, we take our jobs very seriously and are committed to providing friendly and professional skilled nursing care.

Customized care plan for the individual

We offer one-on-one physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy; nutritious meals; laundry service; social and activity programming as well as 24-hour individualized nursing care to make sure you or your loved one is always cared for.

Caring, professional nurses

Skilled nursing care facilities are licensed healthcare facilities that are inspected and regulated by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. These facilities are staffed by registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants and a variety of therapists as well as other disciplines in dietary, social services, activities, housekeeping, laundry and administration. Care Initiatives facilities are Medicaid and Medicare certified.

Long Term Care

Your loved one’s home away from home.


Care Initiatives offers long-term care and a home away from home for Iowans with severe or persistent health care needs. We treat each resident with the dignity and respect they deserve and provide high quality care custom fit to each resident.
At Care Initiatives, residents enjoy time with their families and opportunities for trips to their favorite restaurants, shops, events and more.

Friendly, warm, comfortable, safe

Each of our locations is unique, but they all provide a friendly, warm and comfortable atmosphere for residents. We encourage residents to bring personal belongings to make their room their own. As for the staff and caregivers, we do truly believe we are the guests in our residents’ home when they come to stay with us.

Modern amenities for comfortable living

We provide amenities that help our residents live to the fullest. Barber and beautician services are available on site, and each location includes dining areas, activity areas, outdoor patios, lounges, and more — giving residents areas to relax and socialize. We also encourage social activities and offer programs and services to make each day different and enjoyable.

Professional, dedicated caregivers

While your loved one is staying at one of our locations, you can rest assured they are being treated with the utmost compassion, dignity and respect. Our goal is to help our residents gain their highest levels of independence and help them live fully each and every day. We also strive for transparency with the resident’s family — we understand you are a vital part of the resident’s life and care, and we work with you as such.
Not only do we strive for a comfortable atmosphere, but all Care Initiatives locations are in compliance with all fire and safety regulations.
