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. All Care Initiative’s locations provide 24-hour care or skilled nursing services.
We offer long- and short-term care for individuals who need more assistance than an at-home caregiver can provide. We provide rehabilitation services and care for those who suffer from serious or persistent health issues, such as Alzheimer’s disease, COPD, or Chronic Heart Failure.
As the largest non-profit senior healthcare provider in the state, we take our jobs very seriously and are committed to providing care with compassion, dignity and respect. 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. With over 3,000 staff members serving an average of 2,500 of Iowa’s elderly, our commitment to the best quality care, compassion and respect is our top priority. Care Initiatives facilities are Medicaid and Medicare certified.
