Rest Haven Homes, founded in 1941, is a senior-care community to over 100 residents. Our residents reside in independent apartments or our licensed Home for Aged on six-acres nestled in a residential neighborhood in northeast Grand Rapids.

Our licensed assisted living provides low to high care for residents with physical and cognitive needs, including secure memory care for residents with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. We are dedicated to higher staffing levels, providing staff with dementia training and hiring staff who desire to help fulfill our mission: "by love serve one another" Gal. 5:13. Our structured activities are reflective of individual needs, in a secure and comfortable environment.

Rest Haven Homes is a fully private-pay facility. If you are seeking an environment that accepts Medicare and Medicaid subsidies, we can provide you with community resources to meet your family needs.

Founded in 1941, Rest Haven Homes exists today to provide a loving home environment to Christian seniors.

We strive to honor our elders while providing a nurturing and caring atmosphere where people can continue to grow and develop, learn new skills, make new friends and deepen their walk with God.

Mission statement

To daily practice the words of Galatians 5:13 love serve one another...

We strive to provide care consistent with the sacrificial love demonstrated by Christ when He gave Himself without reserve for we who were unloved, undeserving, and ungrateful.

Our Lord esteemed others more highly than Himself. We seek to serve others with that mindset. Our customers are our residents, their families and our fellow laborers.

Our mission is symbolized in the overlapping of two hearts in a perfect balance. The words " love serve one another..." are not fulfilled simply by residents coming to Rest Haven Homes to be served and blessed, but we find that as we serve, we are blessed in return. Our hearts are warmed and strengthened by the dear ones God sends to join our family at Rest Haven Homes.

Rest Haven Homes is not about the brick and mortar, but the loving care that dwells within its walls. Founded in 1941, in a single, family home in Alpine Township, Rest Haven Homes was started as a conservative, Bible-based home to meet the needs of those who were unable to care for themselves. Because of growth and the increasing interest by residents and families to be a part of our service ministry, we moved to two larger locations in Spring Lake and northwest Grand Rapids.

Through the years, we outgrew the beautiful property in Spring Lake and the stately home in Grand Rapids. It was in 1963 that we opened the doors of a newly constructed, one level home. Over the years we have added additions to the main building and constructed thirty-seven independent living apartments on our six-acre property. With our keen awareness of the growing needs of future generations we are continually striving to improve our environments through expansions, modern design and offerings and yet keeping the home-like feeling.
