Alzheimer’s Prevalence Statistics

At Glacier Hills, we believe those with Alzheimer’s/Dementia can continue to lead a life of quality and one filled with purpose and joy. This is accomplished by engaging these individuals’ in meaningful activity by determining their best ability to function and matching the activities complexity with the individual’s cognitive ability.  The environment, the challenge of the activity, and the approach of our care team are all tailored to the individual resident’s stage of dementia to allow our residents to flourish.

Creating home, a place of purpose, safety, and belonging is accomplished through our focus on successful participation in meaningful life activities and through building loving, supportive relationships between our residents and our care team.

Our unique assessment process, along with our skills in knowing how to incorporate each resident’s identified stage of dementia and their own unique individuality into day-to-day life, creates an environment of wellness to fulfill our resident’s potential at every stage of their journey.

The Reenders family and  Heritage Property Management Inc., are very excited to be a part of the Saline community “because of the small town feel, the charm of the community, and the new growth moving south from the Greater Ann Arbor area.”  Saline reminds Scott Reenders, President of Heritage Property Management, Inc., of Grand Haven, MI, where the company’s headquarters are located.  When Scott’s grandfather, Arthur Reenders, started the company in 1947, he stated, “I won’t build or own anything that I wouldn’t live in myself.” Scott, his partners, and staff members still believe in Arthur’s values, dedication, and beliefs to this day, more than 65 years later. Heritage Property Management owns and operates 7 other assisted living communities in Michigan, Railside Assisted Living Center, Byron Center, MI; Sheldon Meadows Assisted Living Center, Hudsonville, MI; Appledorn Assisted Living Center, Holland, MI; Seminole Shore Assisted Living Center, Norton Shores, MI; Edgewood Assisted Living Center, Saginaw, MI; Bay Ridge Assisted Living Center, Traverse City, MI; and Grand Pines Assisted Living Center, Grand Haven, MI.

Linden Square Assisted Living Center will bring over 50 new jobs to the Saline community with its opening, and over 100 jobs will be created after the completion of community’s second phase.  Scott has said, “we [our assisted living communities] do well in this type of location, where people appreciate being part of an assisted living community that puts quality and service to our residents above all else.” Linden Square Assisted Living Center will be licensed by the State of Michigan, and offer a variety of assistance for those 60 years of age and older.
