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.


It’s time for you to return to the Bay City State Park on Wednesday, July 19. Our residents will be able to enjoy an outdoors picnic lunch at the Bay City State Park. We will be serving sandwiches, chips, fruit, dessert, and beverages. All families are welcome to meet us there with your own picnic lunch. Our reserved pavilion is to the left upon entering the park. 

We will begin boarding the bus for the Bay City State Park at 10:45 am. Our return boarding time is expected to be about 1:00 pm. 

No money is required for residents for this picnic style lunch trip. Residents may sign up at Kristi’s door beginning July 3. Residents must be signed up by July 11. We hope to see you there!


Baseball season is in full swing and that means it is time to make plans for our annual Great Lakes Loons Baseball outing. 

We have reserved the pavilion where you can enjoy the game in the shade or move to a sunny seat. We will be attending the game on Sunday, June 25 with a game time of 2:05pm. Our bus will be picking up our residents at 12:15pm. We will meet you there! 

The cost of attending is $25 per person and includes a ticket into the game and a buffet-style meal. The meal includes two meats, vegetables, salad, dessert, and un-limited coke products. We have reserved 25 tickets for our group so if you are planning on attending with your loved one, be sure to purchase your ticket through Kristi as the tickets are on a first-come-first-served basis.
