About Health Services


We genuinely care.

Being family-owned and located in the Midwest has helped make us a strong company with a rich history.

Feeling at home has little to do with the physical structures that house us, and has everything to do with our sense of belonging — feeling we’re in the right place.

Russ Peterson, and his wife Jennifer, founded Nye Health Services in 1989 on the philosophy that older adults deserve services that recognize the individual and are tailored to their unique needs. As a company we do not aspire to be the largest. We never want to lose our connection to the people we serve, it's the core of our success.

 
I was getting so scared living at home that I wasn’t sleeping at night. The first night at Nye Square I slept the entire night! I feel so safe here.
— Maxine, Nye Square resident
