Masonic Pathways Life Plan Community

The many lifestyle options at Masonic Pathways are designed for residents to live as independently as possible. The vibrant Village Estates is an inviting independent living duplex neighborhood. The comfortable, private rooms and friendly common areas of the Michigan Masonic Home offer four different levels of care and cater to residents needing 24-hour assistance. The Jack F. Sanders Rehabilitation Center cares for those recovering from illness or planning for surgery. And, the Jack F. Sanders Health Care Center is staffed with 24-hour nurses skilled in memory care for dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Best of all, if and when resident healthcare needs change or intensify, they won’t have to move to another facility or give up familiar surroundings. The amenities at Pathways are as diverse as Michigan’s four seasons and keep residents happy year-round. From our beautiful campus and state-of-the-art medical facilities to the trusted friendships between staff and residents, you’ll soon discover that our legacy of caring is the secret to exceptional living.

For those who prefer a healthier option, there are always two soups and an extensive salad bar. For those with a sweet tooth and for mid-day snacks, the Wright Place Café is where you’ll find delicious muffins, cookies, ice cream and your choice of several popular warm and cold beverages.

Guests are welcome, never need reservations and may pay with cash.

Satellite Dining Rooms

For a more relaxed and private dining experience, residents of the Michigan Masonic Home may choose to eat in one of four smaller satellite dining rooms. Conveniently located within residential neighborhoods, these intimate dining areas are often the choice of those who prefer to dine closer to their living unit.
