About Us

ExtraCare Services is a private duty, in-home care service for anyone who needs an extra layer of support, whether it's transportation to a doctor's appointment, a nurse to provide care or set up medications, or someone to run errands or prepare meals. Based in West Des Moines, Iowa, ExtraCare Services is a program of HCI Care Services and Visiting Nurse Services of Iowa - a non-profit organization which has a legacy of caring for Iowans for more than 100 years. ExtraCare Services is available to clients in Des Moines, Polk County and surrounding central Iowa communities. 

ExtraCare Services offers a range of options to help individuals maintain their independence. We also offer assistance to families who seek experienced, skilled caregivers and companions they can trust to look after their loved ones while they step out of the house. Our registered nurses, licensed LPNs, home health aides and trained companions are carefully screened and must complete thorough background checks. ExtraCare Services is insured, and family members living out of state can be confident in trusting ExtraCare Services with the care of their loved ones.
