About Grand Rapids Home Care

Grand Rapids home care can be imperative for seniors with mobility or memory issues who are struggling to maintain independence within their family homes.  While family members often provide this care initially, a long-term need is often best filled by someone who provides this care for a living. The toll on family members can be tough, and bringing in a care provider can offer respite to loved ones while providing seniors with safe, reliable care.  Knowing when to seek help can be one of the most important decisions that family members face. There are a number of things to consider when seeking non-medical home care. From insurance and background concerns to personality matches, experience, and availability, there are many criteria that can be easily overlooked.  At The Eldercare Channel of West Michigan, our video hosts, Charles Cottrell and Catherine Jacobs of Cottrell & Jacobs, know that seniors and their loved ones have a lot on their plates. This is why the Eldercare Channel works hard to provide resources and information to help make difficult decisions easier. Through our search feature, you can find a list of non-medical home care providers in your area, while our website also offers a wealth of tips, advice, and information on non-medical home care as well as many other issues and situations facing seniors and their family members today.
