Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know my family member will get the care I want her/him to get at Thornapple Manor?

“Day in and day out, we provide the same consistent quality of care, keeping our full time staff members in the same neighborhoods, which enhances the ability for staff to develop caring and loving relationships with the residents. Additionally, allowing staff to have time to interact with the residents, and an excellent survey history reflect the strong continuum of dignified, quality care your loved one will receive.”
