More press for Our Family Friend and their award for "Best Small Business" in region!


How can we help you?



We couldn’t be more grateful for Dee Petry and her team. We are beginning our second year with Dee and at peace and well-cared for. Not only have her team members provided us with fabulous rehab care, but she sincerely cares about me (as the core caregiver). We are more than happy to ‘spread the word’ about Our Family Friend!

Our Family Friend is thrilled to have been named one of the 2018 “Best Small Business Honorees!” Michigan Celebrates Small Business (MCSB) is the most prestigious small business awards program in the state of Michigan. Honorees are selected based on their demonstration of successful growth and contributions to the economy of Michigan.

We are very excited about the success we have achieved through our relationship with the Michigan Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Each SBDC Region chooses one business from hundreds and even thousands of possible businesses they have worked with in the previous year. Our Family Friend was selected as the "Best Small Business" in the Greater Washtenaw Region, which includes Washtenaw, Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, and Monroe counties. We recognize this is a very exclusive award!

Our Family Friend will be honored at an awards ceremony during the fourteenth annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business gala event, May 3, 2018 in Lansing, Michigan. 

We want to thank our incredible team members who truly are the hands and feet of our company. We also want to express our gratitude to those who have trusted us with the care of their loved ones.
