These care homes are licensed by Michigan’s Department of Human Services, Bureau of Children and Adult Licensing and permitted by the City of Grand Rapids.

 

Types of Residents

Memory Care Residents in these board and care homes prefer a “home-like” intimate setting that they are used to at home. While there are many small residential care homes in Grand Rapids that provide activities, pet and music therapy, fitness programs and more, these residents prefer to be with a smaller group of seniors. If your Love One has a tendency to wander, first check with the facility owner or administrator to review their resident safety protocol and procedure. Since safety is their number one priority, you may want to compare with other care homes in Grand Rapids or also consider a large community with a secured Memory Wing.
