EDITOR'S NOTE: The following piece was published in the Grand Forks Herald's "Health Matters" section.

Ethos Home Care and Hospice soon will open an office in Grand Forks and begin serving clients in the Greater Grand Forks region.

The nonprofit, Christian-based organization was formed in 2014 through the cooperative efforts of Bethany Retirement Living in Fargo, Eventide Senior Living in Moorhead, Minn., and senior living community Knute Nelson, in Alexandria, Minn. Ethos provides home care and hospice services to the Fargo-Moorhead and Detroit Lakes areas, and will open an office in Grand Forks at 4491 South Washington St., Suite A, on May 3.

“We are committed to our values and to our mission of enriching the quality of living for those we serve,” said Cassie Zielke, administrator of Ethos Home Care and Hospice. “It guides us in everything we do and has allowed us to grow and evolve into who we are today.”

The medical services company will provide a variety of home-based services to clients within a 40-mile radius of the new Grand Forks office.


Home care staff includes registered nurses, home health aides and physical, occupational and speech therapists, who offer recovery and home safety services. Staff work to provide personalized health care at home, for situations including chronic disease management, injury care, assistance with the activities of daily living, in-home therapy and more.

The team of hospice professionals includes nurses, social workers, home health aides, spiritual caregivers, chaplains, volunteers, grief counselors and more. These individuals help manage patients’ pain and symptoms, provide spiritual care and therapy, family support and education and life-enriching services like massage and pet therapy.

“Our medical director, Dr. Kinsey Nelson, strives to provide high quality, comprehensive health care to all of his patients,” said Zielke. “He works closely with our team of caregivers and our patients’ primary physicians to ensure each individual is receiving the highest quality care possible.”

Monna Morse, who lives in Fargo, said she has received Ethos Home Care services a number of times, and that she has been well-served by the medical services company’s staff.

“I’ve just been so satisfied with the care and concern and everything that these people have,” said Morse. “They’re all well-suited for the job. I can’t say enough good things about them.”

According to Zielke, Ethos Home Care and Hospice is accredited through the Accreditation Commission for Health Care. Achieving accreditation is a process through which health care organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. It is an accomplishment that reflects the organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.

“We encourage anyone interested in home care and hospice services to reach out to us directly, so we can discuss whether these services may be right for you or your loved one,” Zielke said.
