Grandvue Medical Care Facility

The facility has evolved from a working farm in 1898 to an infirmary with x-ray and maternity ward in 1949 to a Medical Care Facility in 1958. A specialized memory community was added in 1997, and the facility was expanded and renovated in 2005.

As a county medical care facility, Grandvue is owned by Charlevoix County and governed by the Charlevoix County Department of Health and Human Services Board.

While Grandvue remains closed to visitors, we understand that family members are concerned about their loved ones and would like an update on how to stay connected.

Large group activities have been replaced with smaller group activities to respect social distancing recommendations. Smaller group activities allow staff to spend more one-to-one time with Residents to help them communicate with their loved ones via FaceTime and Skype, as well as placing phone calls and communicating through mail, email and social media. If you would like to coordinate a time to video chat with your loved one, please contact a Grandvue Activity Professional at (231) 536-2286.

What can families do? Mail your loved one a letter, send flowers, coordinate with staff to drop off books, magazines, puzzles, etc. that your loved one enjoys. If you have an electronic device such as an iPad, iPod or tablet that you would like to share with your loved one, you may coordinate dropping that off as well.
