Our History

MICHELLE KALOUS
RN, DIRECTOR OF CLINICAL SERVICES, PRESIDENT

AEGIS HEALTH PERSPECTIVES WAS FOUNDED IN 1999 BY MICHELLE KALOUS, A REGISTERED NURSE, AND HER FRIEND WHO SUSTAINED A SPINAL CORD INJURY AS AN ADOLESCENT.

Michelle has been in health care for over 20 years, providing care for individuals with a variety of needs. In 1999, Michelle had a vision to create a health care agency based on the principles she practiced in her nursing career. In addition, she had the desire to provide the best delivery of care to individuals with spinal cord injuries. Together, the original founders formed the basis that became Aegis Health Perspectives, Inc.

Aegis’ original co-founder has made great contributions to the agency by offering insight on the special needs of the spinal cord injured by providing input on client care planning and the educational process of Aegis staff. This has put Aegis at the forefront of care for individuals with spinal cord injuries.

Testimonials

“AEGIS GETS YOU THROUGH WITH DIGNITY.”

Through hard work and perseverance, I have reclaimed more of my life than most similarly injured people. Had it not been for Aegis Health Perspectives, I could not have made this statement nor be writing this letter to you. I cannot explain to anyone the fear and embarrassment of needing assistance for every facet of life. In a world where one can easily feel dehumanized by needing assistance to eat, dress, perform bladder and bowel functions, Aegis gets you through with dignity. (C. A. Parkhill, Bloomfield Hills, MI)

“… DEDICATED TO THE CLIENTS THEY CARE FOR”

My injury is 20 + years, I’m a C3 Complete spinal cord injury. I require 24 hour around the clock care. I’ve been through countless agencies. Their staff was not knowledgeable regarding the special needs of someone with my injury. Many times staff did not show up at all. With Aegis my coverage is guaranteed. They are dedicated to the clients they care for and they treat me like family. (G.D.M., Westland, MI)
