Long Term Care Nursing Home


Family Health West strives to deliver quality care from a standpoint of caring for a family member or friend – with love, compassion and concern for meeting our patients’ individual needs. We have replaced the old model of a traditional nursing home with a new model – an expanded family environment that “adds life to the autumn years.” We want to help you navigate the complex issues surrounding the placement of your loved one in a long-term care setting.

Expect quality care.

Family Health West is positioned as the only hospital-based nursing home and as the only nonprofit nursing home in the Grand Valley. Family Health West has received national recognition for award-winning quality nursing home care.

Expect caring.

Every nursing home should be held to a standard of providing quality care. Family Health West provides quality care but we feel there is a difference between providing care and caring. WE PROVIDE CARING.

Staff members of our nursing home are professionals who understand the importance of caring with compassion. From skilled therapy and nursing to a gentle hug, we provide the kind of care that is essential to all of us. Our patients are part of our family and staff members are committed to being a part of theirs.

Our approach to care is based on the positives, focusing on wellness, enhancing the environment, and preventing unnecessary rapid decline in functioning – ultimately providing a higher quality of life and dignity. Our dedicated and energetic staff provides a range of activities for our patients to enjoy.

Expect peace of mind.

Anyone faced with the prospect of placing a loved one in a nursing home is confronted with a myriad of issues. Not the least of which may be a feeling of guilt or inadequacy for having to rely on others to provide care. Combine these feelings with the complexities of coordinating financial arrangements, medical assessments, responsible-party duties, and the paperwork that legally must be created – and the whole experience can be overwhelming.

This is where Family Health West can be of great service. Our trained and experienced social services team is effective in guiding families through the process. We take the time and make contacts where possible to ease the burden on your family. Physician, nursing and social service assessments help assure appropriate and efficient placement and treatment for each patient. Our compassionate caregivers understand that each of our patients is unique and provide the personalized attention necessary to assure their well-being and their family’s peace of mind.
