This morning, residents and employees of Warwick Living Center were notified of the decision to discontinue operations on March 12, 2021. With the pandemic, we must acknowledge the future of long-term care will be forever changed, and now is the time to reimagine that future.

According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, prior to COVID-19, Nursing Home utilization in Gratiot County was “over-bedded”. However, the Michigan Masonic Home maintained a combined average skilled care census of over 90% at Warwick Living Center and Masonic Pathways. Today, with the devastation wrought by the pandemic, our census has fallen below 70%. With the current shift away from Nursing Homes to home and community-based care settings, it will be years, if ever, before we re-establish our pre-COVID numbers.

Therefore, the Michigan Masonic Home Board made the difficult decision to merge the operations of Warwick into Masonic Pathways. Every Warwick resident, who chooses to do so, will have the opportunity to move to Masonic Pathways. We are preparing a special unit for our ‘Warwick family,’ and residents will have a choice of rooms within that neighborhood. For those experiencing dementia, our newly remodeled Memory Care unit features the latest in memory care environmental technology.

We are thankful for our residents and employees, and are heading into 2021 with the same goal; to provide excellent care to your loved ones. Thank you for your continued support.

- Mike Logan, CEO of Michigan Masonic Home

Sad

Warwick Living Center has been in a league of its own. So sorry to hear this news. It has been a great place with personal care for the residents. We have nothing but praise for the excellent staff there. They became our family over several years of care for our mother. We'll be forever indebted for their care and concern.

Mahalo for all you do

Omg how devastating that would be to move to diff. Facility. Wow.

Keep praying ppl I'm sure when covid eases way up nursing home will be hiring again n bringing in new ppl we all just gota wait it out ❤

Warwick has been a wonderful home for my mom, and it breaks my heart to have to move her away from the wonderful caring staff that has taken care of her😪. God bless you all!

Very sad.

So sad for the Warwick family. You guys are amazing.

I was a patient there had wonderful care all the staff was excellent so sad

So sorry to hear this😢Laurels of Carson city is always hiring if employees are looking for jobs close to home keeping everyone in my prayers.

This is very sad news... prayers to the resident and staff.

What the fuck!!!🤬

This is heartbreaking for the residents and their families . Thinking of you Aunt Helen.

I always appreciated the individual care my loved friends received

I’m so sad to hear this news. My husband was a resident at Warwick following ankle surgery and he received excellent care. Sending our thoughts and prayers to the staff and residents. I know this wasn’t an easy decision

Very sad!

My mom passed away at Warwick,,very nice nursing home,,so sad, feel sad for all there employees

Oh no!

How sad:-( I'm so sorry for the staff that will be out of work as well as the residents that will be relocated

Very sad to see and hear this

Andrea where is bonnie

This is so sad, I placed my mom there when she broke her hip, is such a wonderful place that rehabbed her tonhe able to be back home, if the time ever came she was hoping she could go back. The staff was wonderful!!

Omg this is so sad! Sorry to hear this.

I am so sorry to hear this. I worked in the NFT Program for years and I have to say that of all the NF in the Central Michigan area Warwick would have been my choice for placing anybody. It was such a great model for what a NF should be.

So sad 😞 Warwick employees work so hard to keep their patients safe, and to keep each other safe. I can’t tell you how wonderful Warwick is. Their residents always came first. I must now have a plan B. I truly wanted to live there someday 😞 God bless all of you, you made a difference in a lot of peoples lives, and you should be proud!!
