Locally owned by a family who’s been in your shoes.

I founded Arise in 2000 after my own personal experience with home care services. Our son required home health care due to his disabilities, but we were disappointed in the level of care that was offered by home care agencies in the area at the time. The services didn’t meet our needs and there were frequent changes in personnel. We wanted to do better, not only for our son, but for all of the families struggling with the same issues. Living it firsthand gives us a unique perspective and a deeper level of empathy for our clients. We believe you or your loved one should drive the decisions regarding how, when, where, and by whom care is provided. We can help you make these important decisions and ensure your loved one the dignity and compassionate care they deserve.

Arise Cares gives back to our community

Our community matters. So we give back by leading the Expo for Seniors, donating time and resources to the Salvation Army, and contributing to the capital campaign of the new St. Cloud Area Family YMCA.
