Presbyterian Villages of Michigan is committed to serving seniors and communities. It’s our goal to be a first-line provider of resources, including information. Aging should be an adventure, not a scary trip!

In the PVM Blog, the experts at PVM will regularly publish articles and information. Topics may range from smart ways to age in place in your long-time home, to tips on how to shop for a senior community. We will have articles on transportation, wellness, nutrition, technology, activities, outlook-on-life, and more.

Medicare is providing important information on how to choose a nursing home. We are pleased to share that The Village of East Harbor continues its long-standing tradition of being rated as a 5⭐ nursing home. Our staff have earned that distinction via Service Excellence beyond compare:

January 18th would have been Betty White’s 100th Birthday. She almost made it passing away just recently. She was an icon and a role model for many inside and outside Hollywood. Her storied career of many decades included the Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls. She also appeared in many movies and even had a memorable commercial for a Super Bowl well into her later years. Betty was known for her quick wit and comedic timing. And she was known as well for her passion to save animals.

A total of 260 senior residents from 17 Villages across the state participated in games and activities sponsored by Humana.

During turbulent times the strongest of organizations come through even stronger with the promise of longevity. Presbyterian Villages of Michigan is among them. One of the most important reasons for this is the people who make it work.

We often talk about the importance of Service Excellence and the commitment that we have made to creating this culture throughout PVM. Recently I was made aware of a beautiful experience which was created by the team at The Village of East Harbor and the wife of a beloved resident, Papa Joe. He is a hospice resident who realized that he would not be here for the upcoming holidays and he was missing two very important life experiences. One was not being able to take his wife out to dinner. The other was not being able to make his “world famous banana cream pie” for his family which has been a tradition every holiday since his children were very young. He still keeps his secret recipe in his bedside table.
