A Lenawee County Nursing Home with a History Of Care

We are privileged to serve as a nursing home to the elders of Lenawee County, Michigan since 1970, when Lenawee Medical Care Facility opened, under the direction of the Lenawee County Department of Human Services Board.

From the beginning, we have been dedicated to being the best skilled nursing facility in Southeastern Michigan. Because of this dedication to our residents and the skilled care they deserve, we have transformed the old model of a nursing home into a new vision with a cultural change. This transformation enables a nursing home to change from a medical model into a nurturing, thriving habitat that our seniors enjoy.

Our staff has worked hard to make this transformation successful, finding ways to express our commitment to the people of this community and to each other.

We are privileged and honored to have a compassionate and future-focused team of individuals leading and working with Lenawee Medical Care. If you have questions or concerns about placing your loved one in a nursing home, please contact our Admissions Coordinator, Octavia Lenix (obuczynski@lenmed.net) at (517) 263-6794.

Patients Enjoy Life in our Skilled Nursing Home Facility

Because our nursing home is structured into mini senior care communities, our residents are members of neighborhoods within the facility. We have eight households in the nursing home, each with an active, closely connected community of elders who participate in a variety of senior living activities.

As a long-term care facility, we embrace all aspects of senior care, to include rehabilitative therapy, therapeutic recreation, nursing care, and skilled nursing volunteer care. Lenawee Medical Care Facility is not just a nursing home; we have a wonderfully engaged community of seniors who are enjoying the latter years of their life, while getting the quality care they need.
