Keokuk Office Opening

Keokuk Office OpeningAdvanced Home Health Care is excited to announce the opening of our branch office in Keokuk.

Currently serving five counties in Southeast Iowa, Advanced Home Health Care’s current location is Burlington.  However, due to our continued growth in the Lee County area, Kathy Gabel, owner, recognized the need for additional space.

The office will be located at Suite 8, 1603 Morgan St., Keokuk, near the Keokuk Area Hospital.  “We have hired additional staff since expanding our services,” Kathy said. “We are seeing a trend – people want to stay home.  Because we can provide an array of services and cares, we are able to meet many needs in the home.  This is a blessing for many that are not ready for nursing home care.”

Advanced Home Health Care provides skilled nursing care, physical, occupational, and speech therapy, as well as homemaker assistance and companion care.  We provide services 24 hours a day, seven days a week – a plus for many of our clients. An open house will be scheduled later this spring.
