Sunrise Side Home Healthcare provides in-home assistance for those in the Alpena County MI area recovering from surgery, illness, accident, or catastrophic injury. Whether you've suffered a serious injury or undergone an invasive and disruptive surgical procedure, healing is not always a simple matter. While your body needs rest to recover fully, your daily duties and obligations may make it hard to relax.

We have the resources and expertise to help you bounce back from even the most devastating procedures and injuries. We strive to empower each patient, giving you a clear, achievable path back to full health and ability. Whether you or a loved one needs full-time, 24/7 nursing care or just a little help here and there, our caregivers are at your side.

Advantages of Home Care

  • The patient has the opportunity to feel most comfortable, secure, and loved at home. Home care services usually cost less than keeping a patient in the hospital or a facility.
  • Family caregivers may feel most relaxed and confident when services are provided in the home as it offers more oversight from the family. It is easier for the family to spend time with their loved one at home.
  • Family members can be actively involved in a loved one's care, and caring for the person in his or her own home environment allows for more flexibility.
  • It allows a patient to recover in the comfort and security of her own home.
  • Services received in the home will be specialized to each patient according to their specific needs.
  • There is less room for errors because the caregiver only focuses on one patient rather than multiple patients.
