About the Michigan Masonic Home

Founded in 1891 in East Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Michigan Masonic Home relocated to Alma and opened to residents in 1911. Since then, the staff and residents of the Michigan Masonic Home, dba Masonic Pathways, have been active members of Gratiot County’s vibrant community. Residents of Masonic Pathways enjoy many on-campus amenities such as an outdoor putting green, shuffleboard court, cozy movie theatre, all new library and media center, unique sports lounge, in-room wireless internet, and a daily activity and events calendar that changes regularly.

Along with our independent and assisted living residents, those participating in our short-stay rehabilitation program and living in our Health Care Center have on-campus access to barber and beauty services, a gift shop, and specialized life enrichment activities. Onsite medical and specialty clinics bring primary care, eye and dental care, and a myriad of other health care services right to you.

Assistance Where You Need It

All Michigan Masonic Home communities support Equal Housing Opportunities. The Michigan Masonic Home also accepts Medicare and Medicaid programs.

You don’t have to be a Mason to live at Masonic Pathways. However, current Michigan Masons with ten or more years of continuous membership, or their wives, widows and mothers, and current female members of a Michigan chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star with ten or more years of continuous membership, receive discounted rates and priority on any external waiting lists.

The Michigan Masonic Home offers several programs to help support our Masonic families. These special membership benefits, the Masonic Advantage (for financial assistance) and Live Better Drug Discount (for prescription discounts) programs, were designed to aid Masons in leading healthier lives. For those who have Masonic affiliation but cannot relocate to any of the Michigan Masonic Home communities, we also offer Outside Relief assistance to Brothers and Sisters.
