Is At Home Care Right For Me?
Navigating various health care providers and understanding the differences in their services can be challenging. To make the right choice, it's important to evaluate the reputation, credentials and range of services of the health care providers you are considering.
Because Spectrum Health is a trusted provider in health care, there are many benefits to choosing us for in-home care. If the person needing service is already a Spectrum Health patient, the transition of care is simplified. Our caregivers will have access to your electronic medical records, which allows them to follow the care plan developed for you. In addition, we can coordinate with other beneficial services and programs within the Spectrum Health system and outside. All our caregivers are licensed, bonded and insured.
Building a trusting relationship with you and your family is very important to us. We understand that you need to feel confident in the people and services that you or a loved one receives in the home. That's why our nurses, therapists and home health aides have extensive training to ensure consistent and exceptional care with compassion and understanding.
