Altercare of Big Rapids

Set in a quaint town, Altercare of Big Rapids provides transitional care, long-term and memory care. Residents often spot deer and other wildlife around our campus. A gorgeous courtyard and covered patios invite communion with nature. Our green thumb residents enjoy gardening in our raised flower beds.

This natural healing environment is in close proximity to the local hospital and offers specialized care expertise, including an on-site physician at least five days a week, tenured nursing staff including RNs and a wound care certified nurse, which allows us to serve patients with complex care needs. We pride ourselves on rehabilitation outcomes, including successes applying physical therapy to regain strength, occupational therapy to develop daily living skills and speech therapy to restore communication skills.

For patients with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, our secured Memory Care on our Speret Hall unit and specialized programming ensure residents are safe, secure and engage in stimulating activities.

Residents enjoy flexible menu options in a restaurant-style dining atmosphere or via bedside ordering at our center.

We welcome you to Altercare and look forward to serving your family.
