At our three communities of Park Village Pines, residents thrive through compassionate care, faith, and life-enriching relationships with staff, family, and friends.

Our faith-based heritage is at the core of our compassionate care. We have an outstanding reputation as a top provider of senior services in the Kalamazoo area with the state of Michigan's licensing authorities. Our residents are encouraged to be as independent as they want to be and offer a helping hand when certain parts of life become difficult. Park Village Pines has been providing for Kalamazoo's seniors for almost 40 years, making us the most experienced senior care community in the area.

Our modern, updated facilities are on a beautiful, secluded campus which has a country feel while conveniently located on the west side of Kalamazoo. A full range of social activities, events, group outings, and religious services are offered to give meaning and fulfillment to the life of our residents. Our Chaplain and Social Worker are also available for our residents any time for additional support.

Our non-profit status and Christian values allow us to be good stewards of our resources, only charge our residents for the care they need, and make it possible to not require large up-front payments or sign long-term leases. Park Village Pines is considered to be an excellent value in senior services and assisted care in the Kalamazoo area.
