Our CARE Story

Inspire Care™ formerly known as the Inspirational Center was established in 2009 to help people with disabilities living in extreme poverty and to provide support services to their families.

After providing more than 100,000 hours of hands-on direct care; we identified a need to improve the delivery of Medicaid’s long-term care program, the necessity for medical oversight, and the value of offering specialized training for its non-skilled caregivers.

As a result, in 2015 Inspire Care expanded its care model to transform the way adult home help is delivered by creating a Virtual CARE NetworkSM  for Michigan residents.

Our Virtual CARE NetworkSM offers Medicaid beneficiaries a dedicated Registered Nurse at no cost; an option that has not been previously available to Michigan residents receiving adult home help.
