As a hands-on caregiver, service provider, and administrator, Bruce Teague understands the importance of serving families holistically in crisis situations. His experience first began at age 13 as he cared for his widowed aunt, who was diagnosed with cancer, tending to her health and household needs.
Bruce graduated from West High School in Iowa City, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Iowa and a Certificate of Aging Studies in 2001, and obtained his RN degree from Kirkwood Community College in 2002. Inspired by working with his aunt, and later Iowa City Hospice, Bruce began Caring Hands and More, LLC in 2004.
Education backed with years of providing family care, life lessons, uncompromising work ethics, strengthened by spiritual beliefs, makes Bruce a viable administrator for Caring Hands & More LLC. Bruce believes that maintaining these values and empowering each employee to adopt aspects of them, will inevitably cause caregivers and service providers to provide excellent care for clients and their families.
Bruce is quite active in the Iowa City community, serving as volunteer for The Spot, a center for at-risk youth in Iowa City, and serving on the board for the Christian Cultural Center. He remains up-to-date on senior issues through his active participation in the Task Force on Aging, AARP, Johnson County Livable Communities, and Elderly Consortium. He is a member of the Iowa Alliance in Home Care, the Iowa City Chamber of Commerce, and Rotary. He’s also very proud to be active in the faith based community, especially Parkview Evangelical Free Church of which he calls home.
