We Are Your Doctor’s Eyes, Ears, and Hands When You Are At Home
We are, and have been since 1973, the community’s only locally owned and operated comprehensive provider of Home Health, HOSPICE, and Private Duty services. This gives you unique access to a broad spectrum of home health and wellness services that allow seamless transitions between these services in your own home, assisted living facility, nursing home, etc.
Skilled Home Healthcare
Your doctor counts on our professional staff to help you heal at home and to cut down on possible expensive trips to the emergency room. We’re the doctor’s eyes, ears and hands, 24 hours a day – and we can handle any weather the U.P throws our way, every day, anywhere our wheels will take us.
Skilled Home Healthcare is a range of services, ordered by your doctor and provided in your home. It’s seamless care: a transition from a physician's office or hospital to home, from illness to health, from troubled times to peace.
- Nursing care to educate and assist an individual with a new diagnosis or to monitor a long-term illness such as diabetes, cancer, or heart and lung diseases
- Rehabilitation after surgery, stroke, or injury
- Support for every-day tasks like shopping or bathing
- Medical Social Workers to help coordinate everything from obtaining a sturdy walker or referral to the appropriate community organization to help sort out a disability benefit
Hospice Philosophical Care
Hospice is a Team of Healthcare Professionals and dedicated/trained Volunteers who can provide medical, emotional and spiritual care to individuals with life-limiting diagnoses, and to their family, friends, and caregivers. The patient and family control “how much” or “how little" care is provided. Click here to learn more.
Service can be provided in most any setting or in a combination of settings – depending on the level of care wanted/needed:
- In your "home" wherever that may be
- Assisted Living Facility
- Skilled Nursing Facility
Private Duty Service
If you’re just home from the hospital or seeking an alternative to nursing home or assisted living placement, U.P. Private Duty Services can assist in maintaining your level of independence. There are so many reasons to remain in your own home as long as possible… U.P. Private Duty Services can help meet the varied needs of all age groups.
U.P. Private Duty Services works in partnership with U.P. Home Health & Hospice Hospice to meet all of your Home Healthcare needs. We are the only agency in Marquette County that provides this unique continuum of care within a home setting. This affords the client and their family the convenience of accessing different levels of care without being discharged from one agency to another to receive needed services.
