Founded over 15 years ago by a mother and daughter team, we understand the meaning of family. That’s why we care for each of our clients as though they were part of our own. Our caregivers are special people with special hearts, dedicated to providing personal assistance and companionship that feels right at home.


We seek to enrich the lives of every person we encounter — our clients and their loved ones, our employees, our communities, and those who have yet to need our services.


Monarch Home Health Services was founded in 2003 by an experienced team of healthcare professionals who wanted to go beyond the home care industry’s basic requirement and set higher standards of excellence, service and professionalism. We work with clients and their families to custom design specific assistance programs to best fit their needs. Nursing care visits can be combined with home health aide visits for comprehensive care.

Our home health employees are tested and certified either as CNAs or Home Health Aides. They are carefully screened, have references thoroughly checked (including criminal background and driving record checks), as well as being bonded and insured. CPR and First Aid training are required. We also provide on-going training and education to all of our employees.

Amy Northway / President

Amy founded Monarch Home Health Services fifteen years ago with the purpose of improving the quality of lives for people in need of assistance and has devoted her work to providing compassionate care to others. Amy believes it is very important to give back to her community. That is why she has dedicated her free time as Co-Chair of Bay Area Senior Advocates, Co-Chair for the Annual Alzheimer’s Walk and member of the Greater Michigan Chapter in Traverse City. Not only is Amy passionate about caring for others, but she also loves living a healthy lifestyle with her family and three doggies (yes, THREE!).

Taking care of someone with dementia is not easy and it takes special people who truly love what they do. The staff at Monarch clearly have a passion for nurturing the elderly.
