The Carriage House is hosting its annual Family Harvest Dinner on Thursday, November 16, at 5:00 pm.  Bring your family in to share a meal with your loved one and the other families and residents of the Carriage House.

The Carriage House will be providing ham, scalloped potatoes, corn, coffee, lemonade, and fruit punch.  We are asking families to provide the desserts for the dinner. Families will need to provide their own place settings as well (plates, plasticware, napkins, cups).

Please call Kristi (684-2303) to make your family’s reservation, with the number attending, by Thursday, November 9. You may also visit the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board by Kristi’s door.
*Limit 4 people per family


Massages will be offered weekly* to Carriage House residents by a Licensed Massage Therapist on Wednesdays.  Each massage is ten to fifteen minutes in duration for a small fee.  If you are interested in having your loved one experience a massage for the elderly, please call Wendy Kloha, at 989-684-2303, Ext.136.   

Geriatric massage can help enhance blood circulation, combat depression, improve balance, and can be especially helpful for maintaining and improving overall health as we age. Since the holidays are right around the corner you may want to give the gift of a relaxing massage to a loved one residing at the Carriage House.
*Therapist will only be available if there is enough interest on scheduled Wednesday.


The residents of The Carriage House have the opportunity to have lunch at Bob Evans on August 16, Wednesday. We will begin boarding the bus at 10:45am, and expect to return at approximately 1:00pm. Residents that are interested may sign up at Kristi’s door beginning August 1st to ensure their spot on the Metro bus. 

Family members are always welcome (and encouraged) to join us there (4137 E. Wilder Rd., Bay City). We ask that you (the family) let Kristi know if you intend to join us so she may give an approximate count to the business. They ask for a count so they may prepare seating and to ensure there is enough wait staff for our group. Residents are responsible for the cost of their own lunch and beverages.

10AM – 2PM

Open to employees, family and friends.  A tour of both facilities is available. We will have games with prizes (until gone), 4H animals, 13 antique cars, clowns and a bounce house for the kids in the grassy area adjacent to the Carriage House and the Colonnades parking lot.

First respondents will also be here. Don’t miss out on all the tasty treats (until gone). All treats are just $1 each. They include hot dogs, cot-ton candy, popcorn, snow cones, bottled water and lemonade.


We have many residents that require occasional or frequent doctor’s office visits. When your loved one requires an office visit, a family member needs to accompany their loved one to the appointment. There are some area doctors who will not see a nursing home resident because many are not "their own person”. The doctors don’t want to talk to our staff; they want to talk to the family or the individual "responsible” for the patient. 

We do realize there are occasions when families are not available. Several residents have families that are located great distances away or out-of-state. We may be able to help with sending a staff member in those situations, but these cases are rare. 

If you are scheduling appointments for your loved one, and the only option is our staff must assist, be certain to notify your loved one’s nurse as soon as the appointment is made.
