Matrix Home Health Care Specialists is a privately owned (not franchised) Care Management and Home Health Care business run by a hands-on nationally certified gerontological nurse who is also a Certified Case Manager. Matrix has been providing trusted quality care in Minnesota for over 25 years.
We are a Comprehensive licensed home care agency providing a continuum of care options from as little as 4 hours once a month up to 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We use a unique team based approach that minimizes the number of caregivers in the home and enhances the client and caregiver experience. All home caregivers are Matrix employees who are carefully screened and fully trained above and beyond what is required by the state. All Matrix home care clients work with one of our RN Care Managers that develops a Plan of Care in conjunction with the client and family, and supervises the home caregivers closely to ensure that homecare services are of the highest quality and provided skillfully, respectfully, and safely.
Our RN Care Managers assess a client’s physical, mental and social needs and work with the client and/or responsible party to develop creative, responsive care plans that maximize each client’s functional status, independence, and dignity. All our RN Care Managers have expertise in geriatrics, nursing and health care issues as well as special skills in assessment, care planning, and knowledge of community resources.

Nursing and personal care assistance provided in a home-like environment. Home cooked meals, individualized plans of care, supervision and care assistance are all included in the services at a residential care home.
A home like environment makes the transition to a care residence a bit easier. Comfortable gathering areas supplement each resident’s private living space to make a new home feel like ‘home’.
Our residential care home offers a home environment with nursing and hands on care assistance 24/7. Awake overnight caregivers assure assistance is available whenever it is needed.
We encourage families to share our home visiting their loved ones, to share meals, to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and special events.
We are open to hosting meaningful events that our residents request like bible studies and board meetings if our residents lives are made more complete.
We believe activities that revolve around the daily jobs and duties that one would do at home can enrich each resident’s quality of life. We gently encourage residents to participate in their own personal care, as well as help the staff bake, garden and plan celebrations.
When possible we encourage participation in nearby activities, attend community performances, visit neighborhood parks and support local businesses for a cup of coffee, a haircut, summer ice cream treats and more..
