I chose WesleyLife because my mother needed help around the home. I had heard great things about the staff and felt secure that someone would check on her and if she needed a greater level of care WesleyLife would be there.

Home Care Aide and Public Health Nursing

WesleyLife offers two unique programs dedicated to supporting your independence, health and well-being at home — Home Care Aide and Public Health Nursing. 

Part of what makes these programs different is the fact that their costs are based on a sliding fee scale — providing you the health services you need at a budget-friendly cost. 

Home health

Public Health Nursing 

WesleyLife’s public health nurses serve Polk county residents who either aren’t eligible for Medicare, have no insurance or are underinsured, and have no other in-home nursing option available to them. Our nurses encourage patients to make good recoveries and reduce their chances of a hospital stay. 

Services may include:

  • Vital sign checks and physical assessment.
  • Medication setup weekly or monthly.
  • Wound care, blood draws or ostomy care.
  • Education on medications, treatments or medical conditions.
  • Guidance on how and when to use health services.

Woman at home

Home Care Aide 

The Home Care Aide program focuses mainly on providing intermittent home care services for residents of Polk county. Any Polk county resident who — due to illness, age or disability — is unable to care for themselves or their home is eligible for this service.

Together with you and your family, our case manager will develop a personalized plan of care for you. Our certified nursing assistants and certified home care aides then execute the plan to ensure your independence, health and well-being are being maximized.

Services may include:

  • Assistance with daily activities such as bathing, shaving, dressing or exercise.
  • Assistance with household tasks such as laundry and light housekeeping.

Funding sources

Funding may be available from the following sources:

  • Iowa Department of Public Health
  • Aging Resources of Central Iowa
  • United Way of Central Iowa
  • Polk County Health Services
  • Waivers
