The Laurels is committed to effective communication during this unprecedented time in our history. We regularly apprise guests, families, and associates to changes in facility status and policy as needed and as deemed appropriate.
We have been humbled by the support we’ve received from the local community and we truly appreciate everyone’s continued cooperation and understanding. For more information and resources regarding COVID-19, see the COVID-19 Resources page.
A Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
The Laurels of Kent is a 131 bed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center located halfway between Grand Rapids and Ionia in Lowell, Michigan. Laurels of Kent offers a country setting with easy access to I-96 and M-21. Although the community is surrounded by farmland, Lowell is very active with multiple events, festivals, shopping, churches, parks, restaurants, library, senior center and fair grounds. Our recently updated building is located in rural Lowell which offers easy access to and from Grand Rapids hospitals.
We host both short-term and long-term guests, providing medical, social and emotional care that optimizes each guest’s independence and enjoyment of life.
What brings it all together is our conviction that each guest deserves our compassion, respect and friendship. It is the Laurel Way of caring and we do it every day.
We provide a complete range of services for patients that are unable to return home after a hospitalization. Our programs provide a safe transition from hospital to home with a depth of services that typically can not be provided through home health care or by family members.Learn More
Extended and long-term care stays are appropriate for individuals that require greater levels of care and support than can be provided at home or within an independent living setting. Our guests typically need assistance with their daily activities due to physical and/or cognitive limitations.Learn More
Short-term respite stays offer a family or caregiver a short-term reprieve from the demands of around-the-clock care. Our twenty-four hour nursing care at our skilled nursing facilities assures that all medications are taken on time and any necessary medical treatments are provided.Learn More
Palliative care provides comprehensive symptom management along with guest and family support when cure-oriented treatment is no longer possible or desired. Within a palliative plan of care, emphasis is placed on guest comfort and emotional well-being.Learn More

"The food was good!"
I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make a full recovery but after meeting the team here at the Laurels of Kent and working with the staff I found the strength, courage and confidence to get to where I am today! Thanks for a job well done. I couldn’t have done it without your help!
I came to The Laurels because I needed to get on my feet again after my hip replacement surgery. Everything was great here and because of the great nurses and therapists, I can get back up on my feet! Holly was my favorite nurse; she offered a lot of encouragement and excellent follow up. Everyone went above and beyond. Thank you all! I would recommend The Laurels to anyone!
