Our compassionate staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and a staff member will always pick up the phone.

Home care services allow clients to continue to live in their own comfortable surroundings, but receive the helping hand that makes it easy to stay independent and active.
Transportation can become treacherous during the icy winter months in Michigan. Our caregivers are happy to provide year-round senior transportation for clients to run errands and enjoy activities outside of the home. Having assistance with senior transportation is much safer for clients, as fall hazards are mitigated and seniors can receive assistance with mobility. Getting out of the home for a few hours can also be a much needed mental break for seniors that spend most of their time at home.
Clients that have been diagnosed with dementia commonly have problems with memory and may become confused. Our caregivers in Southfield, Huntington Woods, Madison, and Royal Oak, MI receive extensive training on dementia care that can be quite beneficial to clients. Home care experts will provide reminders for medication and devise systems to help clients strengthen memory and other cognitive functions that may be affected by the disease. Caregivers will also evaluate the client’s home set up and provide suggestions that may decrease dementia hazards such as falls.
Family members typically become the primary caregivers when age or infirmity causes seniors to require assistance. While family members know their loved ones best, having a caregiver step in can provide family respite that allows family members to rest and focus on enjoying life and the company of their loved one. This can also reduce strain on the senior. As a result, many seniors and family members experience an improvement in the family dynamic after beginning a family respite care program.
Tasks such as dishes, laundry, and salting driveways may become difficult and even hazardous for seniors who suffer from physical disabilities and other conditions. Having a caregiver help with these small tasks can take an incredible burden off of both seniors and their family members. This provides seniors with the ability to focus on what really matters: their health, wellbeing, and happiness.
