The MultiCare team is committed to providing exceptional health care services that will enhance the
quality of life and independence of our clients in a
friendly and dignified manner.
“ We understand the importance of quality care. Many of us have used home care services for our own loved ones.”
We are a privately owned home health care agency providing nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and personal care services to southwest Idaho. Our agency serves the needs of patients of all ages in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Kuna, Nampa, Caldwell, Star, Emmett, Middleton, Marsing, Homedale, Parma and the surrounding areas of southwest Idaho. Our goal is to provide the highest level of care possible, delivered by the most experienced and caring staff.
Our integrated management system allows us to offer our clients continuity of care through a broader range of health services from a single source. While one may start out needing only personal in-home care services, they may later have a need for skilled home health care or physical therapy. With MultiCare, they would be able to continue working with the same familiar agency for both the personal care and the skilled care.
