HomeWell of Oakland County is not your average home care agency. For us, it’s not simply about placing a caregiver in the home. We take a holistic approach to at-home care that focuses on both accomplishing the tasks of daily living and improving the overall wellbeing of each individual entrusted to our care.
As a retired law enforcement officer in Michigan, Michael has 25 years of service in the community safeguarding and caring for others. Years of serving and protecting the public facilitated the development of a robust work ethic, strong moral character, and compassion for others. During his career as a Deputy Sheriff, he received many commendations for his work and gratitude from the citizens he served.
Here is an excerpt from one of the many letters he received: My mother passed away after a long battle with cancer. Words cannot express how much I appreciate how professional and respectful Deputy Marohn was to me and my family.
Michael’s passion for helping others in need is what led him to the home care industry and fostered the desire to open his own agency. His leadership role in his community helped him to recognize the need for quality in-home care. He also has firsthand experience with the needs of the senior population as his mother, prior to her passing, needed in-home care for several years. Now, Michael is focusing his passion and desire to assist and support others in the private sector, where he knows he will be fully rewarded by serving the seniors of Oakland County. Michael’s faith in God led him into this new adventure, where he plans to continue serving the communities he protected. Michael’s top priority is to ensure the happiness of his clients and their families by providing the care that will allow seniors to age in the comfort of their homes.

We all function better when we enjoy life more. For most people, this can be achieved through increased activity, reduced stress, better nutrition and basic companionship. As simple as that observation is, it is at the core of what we do. Our primary objective is to bring more enjoyment to the lives of those who find it increasingly difficult to function well on their own. We remove the burden of stress from both the person needing assistance, as well as those who love and care for them. We help people maintain their dignity and their independence. We protect and care for those who are unable to do so themselves. We help people function better. We help people enjoy life more. We do all of this by working as a team to provide reliable and compassionate in-home care that goes so far beyond typical adult care services.
