Extended Care Services

In our Minnesota service area, we also offer bathing, grooming, meal preparation, errands, grocery shopping or infant/child care services through the Extended Care program. These services are appropriate if you want additional help beyond the home care prescribed by your doctor. Reimbursement for extended care is typically paid privately because insurance payers consider this level of care as "non-skilled." For more information about Extended Care services, call our home care number: 218-249-6111.
