Congratulations to our volunteer group of the year, Afton Care Center Auxiliary! Brent Willett, President of Iowa Health Care Association (IHCA), presented this award to the Auxiliary on Thursday, November 2. The Iowa Health Care Association award reads, "2017 Quality Program Award for Volunteer Group of the Year In recognition of your commitment to enriching Residents’ lives. The Auxiliary Afton Care Center."  

Afton Care Center Auxiliary

The Auxiliary was established in 1977 when several in the community felt the need to assist the activity director. The first year 103 people joined, creating a foundation of service. This included nearly every woman and few men in the Afton and eastern Union County. Members were called upon to bake a cake, read to a resident, or coordinate a party. The group carried out bazaars earning money for their projects, for the past forty years, members have provided outings, parties, craft sessions, and Bible Study for the residents. In addition, they have contributed to the staff parties and celebrations.    

The Iowa Health Care Association has awarded the Afton Care Center Auxiliary the 2017 Quality Program Group ‘Volunteer of the Year.” Congratulations and thank you for your years of service!

If you would like to be apart of this prestigious group, please contact Penny Cheers or call Afton Care Center and ask for Marcia, the Activity Director, at 641-347-8416.

Afton Care Center is a 43 bed, skilled-nursing facility offering a full range of quality health care services while meeting individual needs, both physical and emotional, in a home-like atmosphere. The Afton Care Center fills the need for elder care that was felt by community members in the early 1970s. Through the foresight and joint efforts of these members, they created this locally owned and governed care facility.

The doors opened in June of 1976 providing a Medicare/Medicaid certified nursing facility, emphasizing a restorative approach to the daily services and cares provided. Our residents are encouraged to participate in the wide variety of daily activities that are available.
