When co-founder Joan Ingwerson’s aging mother needed at-home care, it became clear that a suitable in-home senior care solution that met her high standards and expectations was unavailable. As a result, Joan and her husband, Denny, opened the doors to At‑Home Care Company in 2005 to enable other older adults to experience exceptional care at home.
Today, our executive director, Anita Fladland, ensures that those in need of care and their loved ones can experience peace of mind and confidence in knowing that the care provided will be of the highest quality – the same level of care given to our co‑founder’s own loved one.
At‑Home Care Company serving Ames and nearby areas, is an award-winning, locally founded, and operated at-home care agency committed to instilling confidence in each person served and the community as a trusted resource on aging care and in-home senior care.
We are proud members of the Home Care Association of America, the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, the Iowa Alliance in Home Care, and the Ankeny and Ames Chambers of Commerce.
Our mission at At-Home Care Company is to provide excellent and caring service to senior adults and those who are home-bound, so they maintain an independent and dignified lifestyle.
Our vision is to offer the professional, personalized care support that empowers older adults to achieve their goal of maintaining an independent lifestyle in the familiarity of home.
Anita’s passion for serving seniors began in her teens while she was employed as an aide at a local nursing home. Later in life, she provided end-of-life care to her mother, who moved in with Anita after a cancer diagnosis. It was important to Anita to fulfill her mother’s wish of dying at home instead of in a nursing facility or hospital. She worked side by side with the in-home hospice team and caregivers until the time of her mother’s passing. This experience greatly impacted her desire to care for others.
After working in both real estate and as an office manager in several healthcare settings, Anita joined the At‑Home Care Company team as a human resources and office manager before being promoted to her current position. Her professional skills, combined with her 15 years of hands-on caregiving experience, help her to ensure attentive care for clients and positive workplace culture for the At-Home Care team.
Outside of work, Anita is passionate about spending time with her family, including ten grandchildren! She is also the proud mom of a precious fur baby who accompanies her to work daily.
