Services

Directly and simply, with just one call to 231-256-0221, ShareCare Members arrange for any available  ShareCare services and programs. During regular office hours, ShareCare staff make arrangements with health care providers, experienced contractors or qualified volunteers to provide services you request.

In-Home Assessment

Each new Member receives an in-home ‘get acquainted’ visit by ShareCare’s registered nurse. She completes a general health assessment to ensure an understanding of each Member’s needs and wishes. 

Professional Health Care Coordination

For no additional charge, ShareCare's RN Care Coordinator oversees Members' health care services, including assisting with hospital discharge plans. She acts as an informative and reassuring contact to out-of-town families.
   

Rides to Appointments

Volunteer drivers provide transportation to appointments and run errands. 

Friendly Visitors

Isolation, is a major concern influencing the well being of older adults. Being a companion and demonstrating interest in their well-being, ShareCare ‘friendly visitors’ play a vital role in helping Members maintain social interaction and a positive outlook.

Respite

Family members taking care of a loved one occasionally need time away from home to keep appointments, run errands, or take a temporary ‘time out’ from the intensity of constant care-related duties. 

   

Household Help
