It's hard to find the words to adequately convey the appreciation we have for April Corey and the amazing staff at Care by April. Because of their dedicated and dependable care, Mom lived to her heart's desire - remaining in her home.

It's hard to find the words to adequately convey the appreciation we have for April Corey and the amazing staff at Care by April. Because of their dedicated and dependable care, Mom lived to her heart's desire - remaining in her home until the lord called her to his home. Moms ability to manage her needs continued to diminish over the years, April's team was there to close the gap, meeting her needs with skill and compassion. It gave us kids such peace of mind to know Mom was receiving such capable, trusted, and genuinely caring assistance throughout her day. April has assembled a wonderful group of people who consistently give their best. We enthusiastically receommend Care By April who provides for people like our Mom with "above and beyond" quality of care. We are incredibly thankful for the way April and her team loved and cared for Mom through the years.

April was recommended to us by our family physician when my Mom fell in 2010 on the ice breaking her hip and arm . April's staff has made life less scary for us-giving us a foundational resource we know and trust.

After my Mom's fall in 2010 the way she had always lived her life ended, causing great physical and emotional losses. She definitely did not want "baby-sitters" but she needed care when I could not be there. April Corey and her staff have provided excellent physical care, but more important they make special efforts to be warm, and empathetic to my Mom. April's group has made life less scrary for us- giving us a foundational resource we know and trust. I can count on them to be just like me- when I'm away. Thanks and God Bless You!

April cared for my dad after his shoulder surgery, while I was out of town.....What a relief! I felt so much more at ease knowing that she was there to help care for him in my absence. My Dad loves April.....her humor and thoughtful ways!

Care by April was recommended to us by Ankeny Sports and Physical Therapy.

My father, and I truley appreciate your dedication and hope that you recognize, as we do, the valuable role you play in my father's life. It is through the positive efforts of people like you that we can change a lifetime for the elderly in need. It is very rare to find such high standards of sincerity and trust-worthiness in the world of business today. You are that example. My father says, "you are a blessing," and he would not know what he would do without your assistance. From the bottom of our hearts, we are truly blessed and forturnate to have you and your staff helping my father out.

It's so beneficial for mom and dad to have someone else to visit with them and it takes such a load off of me.

My folks are pretty independent for their age, but they need help getting to the doctor and shopping for groceries. It was difficult for me to take time off from work to get them to their doctor's appointments and hauling their groceries into their apartment was a challenge for me, as well.

Then along came April Corey. She came to meet mom and dad and they instantly fell in love with her. She quickly became their favorite daughter, but I was fine with that! Brandee, who is one of April's caregiver, lives very close to mom and dad and comes over to help mom with shopping, going to the doctor and other errands, and once again I have been replaced. Both April and Brandee show such great compassion and spoil mom completely and not only listen to, but laugh at my dad's bad jokes.

When I stop by to visit, my mom just brags about how sweet Brandee is to her and how spoiled she feels by her. I have been truly blessed when April and Brandee came into our lives. It's so beneficial for mom and dad to have someone else visit with them and it takes such a load off of me.

We were not prepared to take care of all of my dad's needs while juggling our normal schedule. But then...April care to the rescue. April and her team of upbeat-high energy, professional caregivers were such a nice relief!

We were taken off guard when we found that my dad, who had been fully independent and active all his life, was suddenly needing help. And like most of us, we were not pepared to take care of all of his needs while juggling our normal schedule as well. At first we worked with another care giver agency who seemed more focused on the business than on caring for my dad. It was very frustrating and discouraging. But then... April came to the rescue... meeting with me and my dad to understand what would be needed to best care for HIM. Since this was all new to us, she made some helpful suggestions and was very understanding, considerate and positive without being "high pressure" or pessimistic about Dad's ability to improve.

April and her team of upbeat, high energy, professional care givers were such a nice relief! They always come with a smile on their face and love and caring in their heart - which is so evident even when they are not working with my dad. It is nice to have care givers that treat my dad as if he is part of their family - they even call my dad, "Dad".

Dad loves taking walks with them (in his wheel chair), having them help him walk on his walker, playing games and now riding the exercise bicycle. They always ensure Dad is clean, healthy as possible, looking his best and just generally well cared for! The staff also keeps his living environment as clean and fresh as possible, always doing laundry or cleaning the bathroom.

The experience of working with Care by April has been a great burden off our shoulders, enabling us to spend more quality time with Dad. April is not only extremely conscientious and flexible (always wanting to do the right and best thing for Dad and us), but I feel that we've established a friendly relationship as well. She's simply the best! I absolutely recommend Care by April without hesitation to anyone!

I hired Care by April to help care for my Mother who has dementia, and was living at home.

I hired Care by April to help care for my mom who has dementia, and was living at home.  April would pick my mom up at her home in Polk City, take her into Ankeny  for errands, to the Ankeny Senior Citizens Center for lunch, and games , out for dinner, to her hair appointments,  and even to her own home for dinner with her family.  Mother loved going with April and I did not have to worry. 

While on vacation I relied on April to take my mom many places and see that she had at least one hot meal a day.   April did a wonderful job, and was always timely when picking mom up and bringing her back.


I know that there are many other ways that Care by April can help.  She was a life saver for me.

With vacations approaching and no one to drive Mom, you were a life saver.

Just wanted you to know we are glad we found you. After our interview with you, we knew, 'You were the one'.

Mom had decided to quit driving. My sister,  and myself were driving Mother to her appointments. With vacations approaching and no one to drive Mom, you were a life saver. You have helped when Mary Ellen and myself were unable to.

You have treated Mom with great dignity and respect. We thank you for that.

Karen Des Moines Ia
You demonstrated to my mom that you truly love what you do.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for the excellent support that you and your staff provided for Mom. You demonstrated to her that you truly love what you do. Each day with her brought different challenges, but all came with professionalism, empathy and sincerity and got the job done. Again, thanks so much for providing the service you do!

Visits from April, and her staff are the highlight of Mom's week and a great source of comfort for me in knowing the someone who is experienced, capable and trustworthy is looking out for my mom and for me.

April came to us to perform household help for Mom in January 2008. April has become my mother's angel of mercy as she has become a trusted friend to Mom and myself as well as taking care of household jobs. I live 300 miles away and April also responds to calls from mom when the unexpected arises and informs me of everything. Visits from April, and her staff are the highlight of Mom's week and a great source of comfort for me in knowing the someone who is experienced, capable and trustworthy is looking out for my mom and for me.

God bless April for who she is and for being in our lives. I don't know what we would do without her.

My caregiver Brandee does a great job for me.

My caregiver Brandee does a great job for me. She is so cheerful, efficient, professional, and always on time with a smile on her face. She always checks on me to see how I'm doing, and what needs to be done around my home. I am very happy with the care that she provides.

Having Care by April here gives my wife the opportunity to do things that she otherwise wouldn't be able to do.

My wife Joan and I are so happy with the job Care by April has done we wouldn't hire anyone else. It's nice to have someone come into your home and do such a good job. April, and our caregiver are considerate, have enjoyable personalities, and are trustworthy.  Having April here gives my wife the opportunity to go shopping, and get her hair done, knowing that I will be cared for. We'd recommend her to anyone.

The care she provides is more than just completing the task, it's done with heartfelt kindness. I feel she truly cares about my well-being.

I've known April for many years and believe her to be one of the most compassionate people I know. Whenever I have a need of any sort, she's the first person I can count on for care and assistance. The care she provides is more than just completing the task, it's done with heartfelt kindness. I feel she truly cares about my well-being. Plus, her positive attitude and friendliness always get me smiling and feeling better. I can't think of anyone better suited to provide the kind of care April provides.
