All persons seen at my home were very professional and cheerful at each visit. They were very prompt; called if there was any problems or nursing changes. Thank you for your quality staff. It is refreshing to see that, in what can be a very difficult occupation. Doing well much to your support.

How Do I Pay?

At Cooperative Home Care, we work very hard to find access to any type of funding source before you pay out-of-pocket. We accept Any Funding. This means government funding (Medicare, MO Medicaid and VA), insurance (health, long-term care and worker’s compensation), reduced fee programs and self-pay. When you call our Intake Nurse, we are more prepared than other home care companies to help your aging parent with their home care needs.
