We're on a Mission to Reduce Stress so AFC Providers can provide better care

We partner with AFC operators to reduce their stress by teaching simple systems so they can succeed at providing compassionate care for their residents and making a living for themselves.

Our history

How it all began

In 2010 in Grand Rapids, MI, our history began. We had the opportunity to start opening Adult Foster Care Homes in residential community-based settings. Our goal was to enhance the lives of adults with disabilities and provide senior care for those who could no longer live independently.

Over that time, we lived and breathed what AFC owners and operators do every day. As a team we laughed, cried, celebrated, and made a difference in the lives of the residents we cared for.

We understand the intensity of stress when staff calls off at the same time a resident has an incident. We know the worry and anxiety of providing a living for the staff and the owner, while having revenue left over for home improvements or activities for residents.

We Realized A Few Things Along the Way

Owning and operating an AFC home can be very difficult and stressful at times, which can cause sleepless nights.

It’s not only about managing the care of the residents, but also preparing for audits, hiring, motivating staff, and knowing how to adjust daily rates to pay all the bills and make a profit.

A Pivotal Moment In Our History

In April of 2022, my husband/business partner and I decided it was time to sell our Adult Foster Care Community homes to start sharing the experiences of what made our award-winning organization with others in the State of Michigan. Care Provider Solutions was created to have a wider impact than the staff and residents we served in our homes.

We Keep Our Mission Simple

Our mission is simple; to partner with AFC owners and operators to reduce stress and help them succeed.

We do that by using the many years of experience gained over opening, running, and operating AFC homes to share the processes, tools, and knowledge that helped us find success.

Our goal (and passion) is to help others succeed at opening and operating adult foster care homes in the State of Michigan.
