About Us

Kurt Hjelle, Safe at Home Healthcare owner, above describes the importance of good home care.

The Best Caregivers and the Best Service

Choosing a home care agency can be a seemingly overwhelming experience. The reality is that most agencies do everything exactly the same way. When you are looking for an agency to take the time to help families with some of the most difficult components of long-term care, Safe at Home Healthcare can be relied on to provide the insights you need.

At Safe at Home Healthcare we strive to provide the best caregivers and the best service but we also provide added value services/options that are tailored to your specific situation so the end result is complete comfort for the one cared for and the family.

None of our added value services cost you a penny. For instance, we know how important it is to be able to AFFORD home care when insurance and Medicare does not pay for it. Therefore we provide extra information for families about programs that help seniors afford care longer.

Kurt Hjelle, Founder

Kurt Hjelle received his bachelors degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in 1993. He has worked in hospitals, nursing homes, outpatient clinics throughout the country.

Kurt has treated thousands of patients in their homes and has advised them about their care, safety, and health. His goal with each Senior is to return them to a quality of life that includes a return to their personal routines and freedoms at home instead of institutionalized care.

What is the background of Safe At Home Healthcare?

We are an independently owned home services agency. We are not a franchise. Kurt Hjelle started in home care as a Licensed Physical Therapist in 1997. While treating patients in their homes he was always impressed how good caregivers took care of their patients. Caregivers looked at Kurt as a resource to find them their next client and clients looked at Kurt as a reference in finding good help. Kurt was then asked by a caregiver if he ever thought about adding a caregiver business to his physical therapy services. The idea intrigued him since he was already in home care so he decided to start connecting caregivers with clients who needed help at home.
