You’re Unique. So Is Our Approach.

We live in a small community, within a uniquely supportive county, surrounded by the natural beauty of water and woods, staffed by people who are your neighbors, your relatives, your friends and housed in a beautifully renovated, state-of-the-art facility.


Following a person-centered approach to long-term care, Thornapple Manor strives to make each day special for our residents. From breakfast-on-demand to late evening movies, from spa treatments to bingo, from visiting the café to listening to the latest tunes of the Herminettes, the day is planned by the residents, for themselves and others.


We believe that each moment in one’s life is special, that each person is unique and deserves the individual care they desire.

Take a Stroll Down Main Street

A Home-Like Atmosphere. Pleasure. Comfort.


As you walk up and down Main Street in Thornapple Manor you will be transported to the small town feel of a community not unlike where most of our residents grew up in. Whether its friends chatting over a cup of coffee and fresh baked cookies in the Café or a quiet time in the Chapel, our residents and visitors experience some simple pleasures. Main Street walls are covered with a gallery of postcard and photographic art which were originally captured in old postcards, carefully restored, enlarged and framed of scenic locations around Barry County.


    A small on-site exam room that assures our residents’, and doctors’, privacy in routine care and assessments.


    Beautiful stained glass windows adorn this quiet space set aside to meet the reflection needs of individuals or family devotion and prayer time.


    Bright and interactive, this room invites that family togetherness, where kids can play while visiting their grand parents or someone they love in a very kid-friendly environment.


    Designed to meet the needs of our residents, special accommodations have been incorporated to make this shop, which is opened four days a week (and special event times), a fun place to go for both men and women.


    A stunning 18 foot mural of downtown Hastings is sure to become a favorite place for family members to gather for a cup of coffee with their loved-one. The mural creates a one-of-a-kind location – fashioned just for the residents at Thornapple Manor.


    Another feature is the Thornapple Manor Auxiliary Gift Shop. The volunteer auxiliary has long served to enhance the lives of the residents. All proceeds benefit residents and the community at Thornapple Manor.
