Optimae LifeServices provides comprehensive health care to residents of counties throughout eastern, southern, and central Iowa. We have served the Washington community since 1988 (then known as ResCare). Our Washington office is located at 1415 West Fifth Street, Suite C. A sister office, which provides home health service, is located at 1509 East Washington Street.
Optimae’s West Fifth Street location coordinates a number of services, including supported community living, habilitation services, supported employment, vocational rehabilitation, and career connections — providing individuals with adaptive skill development, assistance in daily living activities, and valued roles in their community. We serve individuals with intellectual disabilities, brain injury, and mental health diagnoses. Behavioral health services (therapy, psychiatric diagnosis, and medication management) are also available through our West Fifth Street location.
For more than three decades, we have equipped our customers with supports and services that encourage choice, empowerment and community integration. We advocate for the rights and needs of approximately 5,300 Iowans each year, providing the quality of care we would want for our own family.
