A phrase that you will hear often at Independence Plus is “patient-first mentality.” For more than three decades we have been committed to providing people with complex medical and respiratory needs the opportunity to live fulfilling lives at home. It has long been our goal to expand our coverage area and bring our brand of quality services to people who don’t have access to the type of complex healthcare Independence Plus routinely offers at home. We kicked that plan into high gear when we opened an office in the San Antonio, Texas area in 2019. Lucky for us, earlier this year we found Cecilia “Ceci” Haynes, whose dedication to the healthcare industry and passion for providing the best possible patient care made her the perfect fit for our team!
With more than three decades in business, Independence Plus is growing rapidly with the goal of bringing our services to the many people who need us. As we continue to expand our coverage area, we are always looking for professionals who are committed to our mission to provide exemplary care and services for people at home with complex medical and respiratory needs. When we first met Marisa Scherman, we were quickly impressed with her vast experience, work ethic, and passion for helping others. We are proud to welcome Marisa as the newest member of our sales team, covering our Wisconsin and Northern Illinois markets.
Social media is an important communication vehicle for individuals and businesses alike. At Independence Plus, we use it to help others experience what healthcare at home means to us.
Independence Plus is unique in the home healthcare field because we specialize in providing home care for adult and pediatric patients with complex medical and respiratory needs. We also offer three service lines – Skilled Hourly Home Nursing, Home Health Visits and High-Tech Medical Equipment.

Last year we were thrilled to welcome Carrie Pierce, BS, RRT, RCP, to oversee the operations of our practice with emphasis in our complex equipment division.

At Independence Plus, Inc., our Quality Assurance team is vital to our success, designing policies and procedures to promote the best possible patient outcomes. We are always looking for the best and brightest team members, but we really hit the jackpot when we found our QA Assistant, Danielle L.

It takes a special person to fill this role, and that is exactly what we have found in Eduardo “Ed” D., our Senior Healthcare Liaison.

Education is at the forefront of everything we do at Independence Plus, Inc. (IPI).

Our education is ongoing, even after they are working in the field.
After completing Independence Plus, Inc.’s Home Nursing Residency, Mary D. RN, BSN, quickly became known as a skilled field nurse with a positive attitude and a commitment to providing the best care possible for her patients. When an opening was available on IPI’s Home Nursing Clinical Management Team, she was the perfect fit.
