The Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home, Inc. was founded in 1944 by five christian women and with the generous financial assistance of many others.

These five women recognized a great need for a comfortable and affordable residential facility for older individuals. The home has been incorporated as a non-profit organization and expanded in concept and size to continue to serve the ever growing needs of our community.

Quotes from Resident's Family Members

Thank you so very much for all of the care and concern you showed our aunt during her stay with you. She never wanted to go to a nursing home and you provided her with just the help she needed, while still allowing her to be as independent as she was able.

You made our uncle feel so special - as special as he is to us. Thank you for your loving care.

Our family saw with our eyes and hearts how all the staff at Sanborn (no matter what their job) went beyond their duties. Each and everyone's care came from their hearts. People working together is hard to find in the world, but God sent us to you for our precious mom.
