  • Whitcomb Second Home

    My loved one was well cared for up until her passing. We followed the suggestion to move her to the 2nd floor where the nurses station was as she was having issues on the 3rd floor apartment with falling and needing more assistance. While the staff was in and out of my mom's apartment, nothing came up missing. Keep in mind, just like a hotel room, you don't keep valuables there. Residents were very friendly and loved on her. Social activities abound but mom was refusing to use a wheelchair toward the end so her socializing was limited. She started in a much smaller apartment which she promptly overfilled with furnishings so I would advise if you can afford it, to start with a larger apartment (which also has a larger bathroom. Thank you to the staff for seeing my mom through to her homecoming and the great care you gave her while a resident there.

  • Very friendly residents, and a beautiful location!

    Things have worked out very well at The Whitcomb for our loved one! The facility itself is located in a beautiful area overlooking Lake Michigan with a lot of nice areas for walks. What really struck us about The Whitcomb is how friendly all of the residents have been to our loved one! Every seemed eager to get to know the "new kid on the block", and she really seemed to enjoy all the attention!
