Iowa CareGivers, founded in 1992 by a former nursing assistant, exists to ensure that all Iowans receive good care and support when and where they need it. It does that by serving the needs of those, who outside of family caregivers, provide most of that care and support...the direct care workforce.
“They’re like family members.” — Michael Westaby, Individual Served
“They’re unsung heroes of the medical field…Without them, I wouldn’t probably be where I’m at.” –Bruce Hamilton, Individual Served
Iowa CareGivers Programs prepare those in direct care to serve the needs of Iowans by being: Prepared, Connected, Informed, and Empowered.
