Serving Des Moines' Seniors since 1996

In 1996 Paul Storbeck brought Home Instead Senior Care to Des Moines. It was his passionate desire to be the trusted source in helping central Iowa families to keep their aging mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older.

Years later that desire is still burning strong. Now owned by Anne & Troy Peters, the West Des Moines business has provided service to over 3000 seniors or disabled adults. We provide quality care. It's that simple. This is all we do and because the home care services your loved one or friend needs must come from someone you trust locally, the Des Moines Home Instead Senior Care office is passionate about exceeding the needs of the aging in our community. We're not a giant corporation run from the top down - we're a community-based, friendly and responsive office right here in Des Moines.

Our mission is to enrich the lives of those we touch through a passionate commitment to integrity, responsiveness, reliability, and the creation of meaningful relationships.

Today, many relationships are formed daily through CAREGivers who provide home care help to clients and their families who desire assistance with activities that used to be simple. Tasks like grabbing a can of soup from the top shelf, opening the mail, reading a book, folding laundry, tying shoelaces or scrapbooking family history are not as easy as they used to be for many seniors. We give them something to look forward to whether it is a helping hand or a smile "hello".

No matter where seniors live, in their home, in assisted living facilities or even nursing homes, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing tens of thousands of hours of senior home care services annually to the Des Moines area.

These senior home care services may include assistance with trips to the doctor, reminders to take the right medication at the right time, meal preparation, assistance with bathing, light housekeeping, errands, shopping and even Alzheimer's care. The result is companionship allowing seniors to feel safe and independent while they age in place in the home they've lived in for years.

And in those situations when a client has aging-related medical needs beyond our home care capabilities, we refer them to our close partners in the health care industry.
