We have been amazed in 2018 by the rapid change in options for senior housing, home care and senior resources. Here are some updates to share with you: Residential Care Homes

A new type of senior housing that is growing in popularity in West Michigan are residential care homes. These are essentially mini assisted livings that are operated out of private homes. They are licensed and staffed professionally, the owner is generally no the care giver. They can cost a bit less and provide a very nice quality of living and care for the right resident. We have recently toured over a dozen of them! These properties should not be overlooked as an option for your loved one!

Recently toured include:

  • Care Cardinal Belmont
  • Care Cardinal Alger Heights
  • Re-Purposed Assisted Living
  • Oakwood Manor
  • Ascension Homes
VA Application Assistance

Here at Crossroads we are now offering free assistance in applying for the VA Aid and Attendance pension. We have partnered with Richard Goodrich formally of Kent County Veteran Services to provide this invaluable assistance to families trying to obtain this financial benefit. Call Crossroads to schedule an appointment.

Lots of new Senior Housing coming to Grand Rapids!

To name a few:

  • Provisions Senior Living – over 100 new assisted living and memory care rooms
  • Cascade Trails – Over 125 new independent, assisted and memory care rooms
  • Trilogy Health Services – a new continuum coming to Byron Center
  • Traditions at Rivertown – 150 new senior housing units
  • Legacies Assisted living – 28 assisted living and memory care apartments
and…we have new wheels!

If you are in need of transportation to tour senior housing properties, we are available at no charge!! Just call to schedule an appointment.

Remember, our mission at Crossroads is that you never look back and say, “If only I had known”. Call Crossroads and get the facts!

75 (and counting) Ways to Bring Peace and Purpose to Your Life

“This book is heartfelt, coming from my heart directly to yours. The gift of a somewhat retired life is having the time to fully appreciate the power of now, the power of nothingness. Which is, of course, the power of everythingness. Everythingness, what a glorious doorway to the unfolding of a life already well lived, and yet one that is ripe for far more living.” –from the introduction

By: Karen Casey

Replete with personal stories and quotes and imbued with Casey’s own understanding of peaceful living as guided by her 12-step practice, A Course in Miracles, and a daily practice of meditation and prayer, these 75 essays help us make room for everything in our peaceful, vibrant, well lived life. Each brief nugget invites contemplation and action as she helps us explore fear and love, resistance and acceptance, willpower and discernment. Each essay ends with additional questions and prompts for you to explore your own life. savor each of the essays and practices and choose the ones that speak to you.

Living Long, Living Passionately brings peace into daily life and is a book to return to often. It will appeal to Casey’s legion of readers who are approaching the time to live “everythingness,” the doorway to the unfolding of a life already well lived. The rest, as they say, is gravy.

To purchase this book, you can find it on amazon at:
