Through our holistic and coordinated healthcare services, provided with dignity and compassion, we enhance the quality of life and independence of aging adults. Our vision is to be the recognized leader for innovative, community-based long-term care and support services.

About Us

The PACE model of care is the welcomed alternative to a nursing home.  PACE participants are aged 55 or older; are certified by the State of Michigan to need nursing home level of care; live in the defined PACE service area; and are able to live safely in the community, supported by PACE program services, at time of enrollment.  With PACE, you receive a care plan designed just for you. The care is complete -- combining social, medical, dietary, and support services.  Plus, we provide door-to-door transportation to our Day Center and medical appointments. 

Our core values include:

Quality - We support our participants in remaining functionally independent for as long as possible by meeting their medical and social needs.

Safety - We strive to keep all participants, employees, and contractors free from harm.

Compassion - We strive to deliver loving and empathic care to our participants as we would care for our own families.

Integrity - We strive for an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect in our dealing with our participants, their families, other agencies, contractors, volunteers, and employees.

Collaboration - We entrust our interdisciplinary team and contracted providers work together in our participant's best interest.

Community - We believe that families and communities benefit from maintaining individuals outside of institutions through end of life.

We have a paid 2-week training to become a certified nurse aide in our Home Care division or Day Center, providing care to our age 55+ participants, who are living in the community. For a listing of all current job listings, see our Careers page.
