Lakeland Homecare Widens Reach to South Haven and Beyond

When pain and suffering keep you homebound, the last thing in the world you want to have to do is trundle off to a clinic, doctor’s office or the hospital emergency room to seek relief and a little TLC. For years now, Lakeland Homecare has been bringing health care providers directly into the homes of patients who prefer to stay in the comfortable surroundings of home, wherever that may be. Now, the healthcare team is expanding services to South Haven, Allegan and their surrounding communities thanks to a new office in the region.

Lakeland Homecare has expanded services to South Haven, Allegan, and beyond with that new office located at 05055 Blue Star Highway. The public is invited to celebrate the opening of the new location during an Open House event on Thursday, October 17th at noon.

Lakeland Homecare offers a wide range of services for those who are recovering, disabled, or chronically ill and in need of medical, nursing, social, or therapeutic treatment as well as assistance with the necessary activities of daily living.

Skilled homecare nurses and home health aides work closely with physicians to ensure patients of all ages receive the care they need in home including bathing and hygiene, IV and catheter management, medication assistance, dressing changes, disease and treatment education, light meal preparation, and more.
