About HomeWell of Oakland County

Meet Michael Marohn, Our Owner

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 in him 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.

Meet Wendi Taylor, Care Manager

As the older sister of a chronically ill brother, Wendi learned at an early age the impact good caregivers have on the entire family. As a child, many of her friends were the nurses and nurse aids at the hospital where her brother spent many days of his short life.

Wendi has traveled extensively while her husband served in the military. She had lived in Germany and in several different states before returning to Michigan to raise her 4 kids. Wendi became a certified nurse aid and decided to return to college where she enrolled in and completed her nursing prerequisites along with 72 credits of health care courses. She also completed courses in dementia care, advanced dementia care, trained with Teepa Snow on handling difficult behaviors in those with dementia and she is certified in hospice care. Wendi has also acquired experience and knowledge in caring for those with ALS.

Wendi has worked in long term care, memory care, assisted living, independent living and home care both as a caregiver and an administrative assistant, learning most aspects of home care operations.

She realized early on that not only was caring for others her passion but doing it while allowing them to keep their dignity intact was her specialty.

At HomeWell Senior Care, Wendi plans to continue learning, growing, caring and assisting the Homewell personal assistants, clients and office staff in any way possible.
