Caregivers are needed to join our team in the Traverse City Area part time/full time (days/nights). Home Health Aides must possess excellent communication skills, have the ability to read and interpret instructions, and be able to deal effectively with the demands of the in-home caregiving position.

Harbor Care Associates is a part of the Treece Family of Home Care Solutions started in Grandville, Michigan in 1980. Our 30+ year history allows us to accurately and quickly assess your personal situation and guide you to the right resources or care solutions. We eliminate the uncertainty in navigating the fragmented healthcare system. Harbor Care Associates operates out of two local offices in Petoskey and Traverse City, providing hometown support to the people of Northern Michigan. Our goal is to help our patients stay in their home environment as long as possible, as safely as possible, and with maximum ability.
We know you want to feel comfortable and safe with our staff. That’s why we carefully screen and evaluate all of our Registered Nurses, Licensed Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Assistants, and Home Health Aides. Each of our offices has a Director of Nursing that supervises and coordinates our Nurses and Home Health Aides to ensure quality care. All our staff members are required to pass a screening test, reference check, state police check, and a drug test. They will present proper identification upon arrival to your home. All staff also participate in ongoing continuing education and annual in-service training at our on-site clinical training room. Our goal is to provide a good match between you and your caregiver.
