|Welcome to Benzie Community Services / Benzie Home Health Care
Over the years, budget cutbacks, welfare reform, health care reform and an exploding aging population have caused a wide gap in services to our area seniors, a gap likely to increase as baby boomers age. Benzie Home Health Care is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to fill some of these gaps and enhance the quality of life of the aging population in Benzie County.
We help. Our kind and dependable caregivers can assist seniors in a multitude of ways to help them remain as independent and engaged in life as possible because we understand there is no place like home. We can provide assistance with bathing and grooming. We also provide caregiver respite, to give family caregivers up to 4 hours of time off each week while knowing that their loved one is safe and lovingly cared for. We offer caregiver education and resources to empower family members to not only take good care of their loved one, but also care for themselves. We also provide free medical equipment loans from our loan closet of recycled medical equipment.
We care. We’re in the compassion business. Every person deserves to spend their senior years in comfort and dignity, and so we serve them. Our caregivers are competent, well respected, absolutely dependable and love what they do. Two of our staff members have been with us for over 18 years. In the past year, our RN and 6 home health aides have traveled 31,000 miles to make 2600 caregiving visits.
- To provide compassionate, practical and high quality home support to any Benzie County adult over 60.
- To ensure that eligibility for services is not based on ability to pay.
- To continually develop and maintain a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization funded primarily by donations.
