ABOUT INTEGRA HEALTH CARE

We are a local Twin Cities, licensed, family-owned and operated Home Care agency. We provide dedicated, high quality in-home personal care services for both non-medical Personal Care and professional Skilled Nursing Services to seniors, ill, and physically challenged individuals. Our goal is to provide restorative methods, tools and procedures helping our clients maintain and enjoy a normal pattern of life.

My name is Dimitri Papkov. Together with my wife, Olga Papkov, we founded Integra Health Care in 2003. During that time, as we were working as Registered Nurses and raising two special needs children, we recognized the importance of having a high quality, dependable Home Care company as a resource. With a commitment to reliability and professionalism, we started INTEGRA Health Care to provide our clients with home care services.

Now, we are able to take INTEGRA to a new level. With added expertise, along with our passion and joy we continue serving our community with dedication. We now offer a full spectrum of Personal Home Care services, including non-medical services, homemaking services, companionship, private-duty nursing care as well as Skilled Nursing services.

Choosing the right Home Care agency is never an easy task and finding the right service providers makes all the difference. At Integra Home Care you can feel confident that you will receive professional, personalized care that is tailored to your unique needs. Helping people like you is what we do best. We consider it a privilege to serve you. Please let us know how we can help.

WHAT OUR SATISFIED CLIENTS SAY


“I have been impressed by the quality and the dedication of the women Integra has sent me.”

S Frances


“I was listened to about my concerns and felt as though I was a person. I really like my caregiver as they are very willing to help me out. ”

Kathi


“There is nothing Integra and its staff won’t do to answer all questions and be friendly and polite. All visits have been professional and beneficial. It is always nice to call Integra and have my call answered by someone. A live, caring and professional person is 100% better than a voice mail or “option” selection. If I need to leave a message for someone, they always call back quickly and that day. This is important to me.”

Pennie


“Our son’s caregiver is an amazing individual and we don’t think she realizes how much of a contribution she makes to our family. Because of her, we are able to work, run errands, and get much-needed rest and life breaks that help replenish our family to do it all over again. She will always have a special place in our hearts.”

The M. Family


“I have been extremely blessed and lucky to have met my caregiver. Eight years ago he started working for me at my house and he has never disappointed me in any way”

Matt


“My caregiver is “family” and has turned out to be like a brother to me more than I thought possible. He is a very caring person! ”

Fredrick


“My caregiver is the best caregiver around; she is kind, pleasant and eager to do anything the client wants. She is so professional, she knows what I want to do and I do not have to tell her. There is nobody that will compare to her. ”

Margaret


“My son’s caregiver makes every day special and fun, and we think she has gone beyond the needs of care for our son. He has improved so much on all he does. Our caregiver is great with my son and with his behaviors”
