A Trusted Provider of In-home Care Throughout Cedar Valley, Cedar Falls,Waterloo, IA

Hi and welcome to Home Care Assistance of the Cedar Valley. My name is Jessica Fairbanks. I am the owner and client care manager. The care and compassion we have for our clients stems from a deep respect for the lives of elderly seniors. We are not here because we have to be. We are here because we value our clients and want to make sure they have empowering and fulfilling lives.

For Us, Home Care is Very Personal

My father was a huge inspiration to me when I was younger. He served in WWII and shared some amazing stories and experiences about his life. As he aged, it grew more challenging for him to remember these stories, and I became worried and wanted to ensure he was taken care of. I did my best to stop by to visit him as often as possible and keep in contact to make sure he was living a happy and healthy life. In mid-2005, my father passed away unexpectedly. I immediately knew I wanted to work with the elderly in my community and make sure they could safely remain in their homes and maintain independent lifestyles while aging.

In 2015, my mother-in-law had surgery, and when she was discharged we stopped at multiple pharmacies to pick up her prescription medications. Once we got her home she was uncomfortable and needed some home medical equipment. I was balancing the responsibilities of being a working wife, a mother of three boys, and trying to take care of my mother-in-law. Thankfully, I worked for an amazing company that understood taking care of her was a priority. At Home Care Assistance of the Cedar Falls, we strive to create a bond with familes to enable them to discuss their situations and find comfort and peace of mind during difficult times. The gratification of knowing we can have a positive impact on a client’s life through exceptional caregiving services is truly fulfilling.
