UNITED NURSING SERVICE JOINS
HERITAGE COMMUNITY.

 

 

In 1972, Doug and Mary Wils founded United Nursing Service to care for the aging population of West Michigan, preserving the right for people to remain independent at home as long as possible. 

Nearly 30 years prior to Doug and Mary’s vision and not too far down the road, Mayor Louis Sutherland brought a similar kind of care, rallying the leaders of Kalamazoo to start a senior living community so his mother and other aging parents in the area had the assurance of comfort, support and vibrant relationship for the whole of their days. 

In the end, what made Heritage Community of Kalamazoo so unique was its commitment to care for each resident through the whole of their life. The training and facilities at Heritage provided service for everyone amidst any change in health or ability. In particular, Heritage established itself as the leading provider of memory care to those experiencing signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Today, United Nursing Service and Heritage Community are honored to partner together to extend more comprehensive care to the families of West Michigan—both those who choose to remain at home and those who desire a more intentional living community. And for those in need of memory care, Heritage will now offer the same exemplary attention and care to our in-home customers as we bring to our in-facility residents—going beyond all other homecare models in the region to meet seniors in their current spaces of need. 

Our new name for the in-home services we provide is Heritage Community Homecare—bringing hospitality, nationally acclaimed training and certification as well as leading edge technology to West Michigan’s aging population.  We exist to keep our clients safe, healthy and connected, empowering them to experience the full benefit of Heritage at home. 

 
 

Home.
It's part of our Heritage.

 

 
 

At Heritage Community Homecare, we value each person’s definition of home. Home is part of what makes each of us who we are. Heritage Community Homecare respects your idea of home, and we train our staff to enter your loved one’s home with care, support and friendship so they feel safe and at ease in their space for as long as possible.

Founded as a locally owned and operated nonprofit, Heritage Community is passionate about enriching the lives of seniors and making our local communities stronger. For me, as a resident raising a family in Byron Center, I know how important and unique our local community is to us all. That's why I'm so thrilled to bring the passion and high quality services of Heritage home to Byron Center.
