Home Sweet Home is the provider's first Michigan-based agency.

PurposeCare has acquired Home Sweet Home In-Home Care, an independently owned St. Joseph, Michigan-based home health care agency. Home Sweet Home has been servicing southwest Michigan clients since 2011, fostering a positive rapport in the community amongst its clients, referral partners, and payers.

"We are thrilled to join the PurposeCare family as their mission and principles align well with ours," Eric Pumfery, chief executive officer and founder of Home Sweet Home, said in a statement. "Being part of something bigger during a time when home care is becoming a significant portion of the healthcare landscape is very exciting."

The acquisition makes Home Sweet Home PurposeCare's first Michigan-based agency, bringing in 400 patients and more than 300 caregivers, and furthering the provider's expansion in the Midwest.

PurposeCare provides home care and home health services to more than 3,000 clients a week, most of whom are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.

"We are excited about our new unifying brand and this expansion into Michigan with a like-minded organization dedicated to empowering care teams to ensure clients live their best lives in community," Rich Keller, chief executive officer of PurposeCare, said in a statement. "We truly believe that 'at PurposeCare, your care is our purpose.'"

PurposeCare is a portfolio company under Lorient Capital, and the parent company of agencies including Purpose Home Health, Alliance Home Health Services, A1 Home Health Care, A1 Nursing Care, Newsome Home Health Care, and Honor Home Health, all of which were acquired in November 2022.
