Elder Care

They’ve done everything for you. Now, let us lend them a hand.

They’re sometimes called the Greatest Generation. We know them as Mom or Dad. Over the years they have given of themselves in countless ways to help others, expecting nothing in return. Now, they are the ones who need help, to meet the challenges of everyday living, and to stay in the familiarity and comfort of their own homes. Every elderly individual is unique, and in order to cope with age-related illness and diminished physical ability, each needs a unique, personalized array of services. Some require help to ensure that they take medications and/or use medical devices properly. Some need therapy or nutritional advice to achieve and maintain fitness. Some need assistance with day-to-day activities like bathing, meals, housekeeping or errands, while some simply need a friendly voice or the touch of a hand to remind them that they are not alone. For many, the most effective home care plan includes some combination of these categories.

Inspire Home Care offers this entire continuum of care for our elderly clients residing in Southeast Michigan. Our Director of Nursing works with each client and his or her family to understand their needs and set realistic objectives. Once a care plan is in place, every Inspire caregiver is supervised and regularly evaluated by a Registered Nurse and our Director of Nursing to ensure that those client-centered objectives are met.
