In-Home Senior Caregiver Services for Des Moines, Iowa
Alzheimer's, Dementia, and Memory Loss Care
Memory loss can be difficult on a family. Whether it’s age-related, Alzheimer’s, or Dementia, once simple tasks like personal care, shopping, and preparing meals can become increasingly difficult. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to providing the best quality of life for your loved one and will do everything possible to keep them feeling comfortable and independent.
In-Home Companion Care
We’re always prepared to lend a helping hand! Our dedicated caregivers can assist your loved one with daily tasks, but also provide company, engaging conversation, and friendship. We use our AccessMatch program to match your loved one with a caregiver they’ll feel comfortable with and look forward to seeing. Companion services can be scheduled on an hourly basis, or a live-in caregiver can provide 24/7 support.
In-Home Respite Care
When you become a family caregiver, it can be difficult to remember your own health and wellness; but, when you aren’t healthy, you can’t possibly provide proper care for someone else. You should never feel like you’re responsible for every aspect of caretaking. We’re here to help! Our goal is to make things less stressful for you and your family.

In-Home Caregivers Dedicated to Serving Polk County Seniors
We’re proud of our caregivers! We think they’re the best in the business, and we’re not the only ones. See what other families have to say about how our wonderful in-home health care companions helped their loved ones.
Flexible In-Home Health Care Services
We offer flexible scheduling for our hourly visits, so you can be sure that your caregiver visits work with your family’s schedule. A caregiver can visit with your loved one daily, weekly, or anywhere in between, and can stay for an hour or the entire day. Plus, you can rest easy knowing that we never require commitments or contracts, so you’re always able to postpone or cancel services when needed.
If your loved one needs more constant care, you may want to consider our live-in caregiver option. A live-in companion will provide round-the-clock care, and can assist your loved one as much or as little as they need. Live-in companions are ideal if your loved one has a chronic illness or severe memory loss, but are also excellent for providing your loved one with the assistance they need to remain independent, and providing you peace of mind.
Customized Home Care
Does your loved one need more than one kind of assistance? We’re committed to providing you with a stress-free experience, so you never have to worry about finding separate caregivers to provide the care your family needs. Your care plan is fully customizable, so your loved one’s needs will always be met.

How We Ensure the Best Care for Seniors in Polk County.
Accessible Home Health Care was co-founded by Mirella Salem after she struggled to find compassionate, reliable in-home care for her aging mother. She was frustrated with the lack of consistency and accountability when it came to elder care. We began a public awareness campaign, which we now call our "Patient's Bill of Rights," and actively lobbied for stricter laws governing in-home health care. We want to surpass industry standards, not just meet them, which is why we created three unique programs that ensure every caregiver provides your loved ones with the most compassionate, knowledgeable care.
Access Match Program
We strongly believe that the right caregiver can improve your loved one's quality of life! Through our Access Match Program, we use your loved one's health needs, background, and personality to match them with a caregiver they will look forward to seeing.
Compassionate care begins with compassionate caregivers! We find the best caregivers and provide them with continuous learning through our ASK program. This ensures that all of our caregivers share the same goals and guidelines for providing the best in home care.
Compassionate Alzheimer's & Loss of Memory Support
Medical advancements are constantly being made in regards to Alzheimer's, Dementia, and memory loss. Our CALMS program provides all of our caregivers with continuous learning so they are knowledgeable and up-to-date, enabling them to provide the best care for your loved one.
