It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a valuable social contact to a home-bound person.  One does not need a health care background since the health care services are provided by nurses of the supportive agencies.  The need is for social contact, light housekeeping, shopping, crafts, or any other friendly activity.  If interested please contact TANDEM365 by email or phone (616) 588-5294.

TANDEM365 is a unique collaboration

TANDEM365 represents a new concept aimed at helping older adults navigate the complexities of healthcare while enabling them to remain in their homes. Through customized care coordinated by a team of health care professionals, participants in TANDEM365 have access to the best services and supports available with a single point of contact. TANDEM365 is available to adults 55 and older regardless of nursing home eligibility and income. This solution is unique because it focuses on elements which improve the overall experience while addressing care and services that are not currently reimbursed by insurance.

TANDEM365 is a collaborative venture assisting hospitals, doctors, family members and individuals in need of healthcare services not traditionally provided.
