Our Team

Prairie Home Hospice & Community Care takes great pride in our team. We believe our team of caregivers is exceptional, and that’s not by accident. We strive to employ the best, because that’s what our clients deserve! We are committed to supporting our team in a manner that allows them to be the best they can be, and we provide staffing levels that allow our care staff the time they need to provide the kind of care that every person deserves and has the right to expect.

Through our Quality Initiative, we commit to a standard that requires all of our care staff to be certified and/or licensed – and we provide training throughout the year to ensure they have opportunities for continuous learning.
