Marquette Home Care

Marquette Home Care was established in 2013 by Erin Swadley. Recognizing a need in the area for high quality, professional care for seniors, Erin began on her own with a handful of clients. The response for her services combined with her personalized attention to her clients needs was overwhelming. The referrals kept coming in and before long she had hired her first employees.

Erin has expanded her business to include a dedicated team that are as passionate as herself to quality and service. Erin grew up in Marquette, MI and graduated in 2003 from Northern Michigan University. Erin spent many years in the Food and Beverage industry and has brought that high-level of customer service experience to her own business, Marquette Home Care. Erin has also worked in the Senior Housing industry for 9 years and brings a wide variety of knowledge and experience with the needs of Seniors and the resources available in our area.

Why we vet care providers

Both caregivers and the cared for deserve to be taken care of!

Through decades of navigating in-home care in Marquette, Michigan, and other states in the country, one thing is clear: the in-home care industry is broken.

Too many Michigan in-home care agencies take advantage of caregivers by underpaying them, providing little to no training, and sending them to new homes with absolutely no preparation. This system hurts caregivers just as much as it hurts the people who need care.

The CIP has worked hard to personally identify agencies that do better, and we’re sharing them with you so that you can avoid the disreputable companies that only care about profit. If you have any questions or need assistance finding a caregiver, please reach out to us any time!
