A national home care franchise has entered the market to offer custom service plans for non-medical care.

Acti-Kare Responsive In-Home Care of Grand Rapids said last week that it is now “accepting clients” for its senior, recovery and family care services in the region.

The chain’s virtually based franchisee in the market offers in-home services to clients who are in need of assistance to maintain their daily activities.

In-home services

With an emphasis on serving seniors, staff members can provide up to 24-hour care for companionship, home services and personal care.

The company also offers several other services: transportation to appointments, medication reminders, nutritional planning, light housekeeping, live-in services for Alzheimer’s clients, bathing and feeding assistance.

The care provider’s services extend from in-home settings to assisted living facilities and retirement communities.

The company develops a customized care plan for clients, their family members and caregivers.

“I have a personal experience where I have an elderly family member who has remained independent pass her 100th birthday,” said Kevin Kampfschulte, owner and area director of Acti-Kare in Grand Rapids. “I have seen over the years with the aging senior community how much people enjoy their independence and do best in their own homes.”

Other clients

Although the non-medical care provider mainly caters to the senior population, Acti-Kare also offers a variety of services for other clients: women in need of prenatal and postnatal care; families; and people recovering from an illness, injury or surgery.

“The perception that many people have when they think about a caregiver coming into their home is that it’s only for people who need help with all aspects of daily living. Rarely that is the case,” Kampfschulte said.
