In January 2019, Prairie River Home Care, Inc. changed its name to Adara Home Health. Adara means “respect, regard, care” in the Sanskrit language (one of the oldest languages). Adara was chosen because it reflects the way they deliver home health care.

In 1996, Adara Home Health became a Medicare certified home care agency offering a broad range of services to individuals of all ages. On November 1, 1998 Ken and Judy Figge acquired Adara Home Health. Between them, Ken and Judy have over 50 years of experience in home care.

Direct client care and services are provided through a network of eight offices located in Fairmont, Hutchinson, Blaine, Mankato, Granite Falls, Rochester, Buffalo and St Cloud.
