Life & Health Care: Providing quality care
WEBSTER CITY — Care for clients.
Care for each other.
Care for the community.
These are the three principles Life & Health Care, based in Webster City, does business by.
“Whoever needs help, we help,” said Mona Everson, owner and chief executive officer of Life & Health Care.
Life & Health Care provides private caregivers for the elderly and those in need, and provides home care aides, companion care, homemaker services and registered nurses to accommodate a wide variety of home health care needs.
Mona Everson, who started the business in July of 2011 in her home in Webster City, has grown the business tremendously since its humble beginnings.
“I just saw a gap in service for people wanting that option of wanting to stay in their home and having that background checked, trained caregiver,” she said. “I felt I could be that provider for that service in that service area.”
Mona Everson has a degree in nursing from Iowa Central Community College. She has worked in critical care, the emergency room, OB labor/delivery and NICUs. She was the assistant administrator at Hamilton County Public Health for four years before starting her own business.
In the first year, she took care of every aspect of the business. By the end of the first year, she gained two employees, or what she refers to as caregivers or ambassadors.
“Having been a nurse for 36 years, with a background in emergency room critical care and the home health arena, I was well-suited to start this,” she said. “It was a natural transition.”
As word spread and business grew, Mona Everson asked her son David Everson, chief financial officer of Life & Health Care, to join her at Life & Health Care in the fall of 2012. He got a bachelor’s degree in business administration management from the University of Northern Iowa in 2009.
