Home Instead Senior Care recognizes your need for verifiable quality in non-medical home care for your loved ones. As a protection to the consumer, many states have established licensure laws governing home care companies. Currently, Michigan has not.
That is why we worked hard to obtain our A.C.H.C. certification. Standards of care are based on the consensus of professionals of those elements that should exist in home care organizations that have "gone the extra mile" to assure quality. Organizations that have earned accreditation usually are most serious about maintaining the quality of services they provide.
