Community Listing


Sentinel Pointe is a full-service retirement community that overlooks a wonderfully wooded landscape complete with a creek and abundant wildlife. When searching for a retirement home, Grand Rapids, MI is a great location, and our excellent amenities and services make us one of the finest retirement communities.

Sentinel Pointe Retirement Community opened its doors in June of 1986 with the anticipation of serving our residents with compassion and respect.

Over the years, we have grown with our residents and learned to fulfill their changing needs as they aged. We have been able to tailor our activities to suit the needs of our highly active seniors as well as those who need some assistance.

Our Health & Wellness Center has added many services that help maintain the quality of life our seniors deserve. We offer exercise classes and health management by providing free weight and blood-pressure clinics.

Most importantly, Sentinel Pointe has the most dedicated, caring staff available to care for your loved one’s needs. Most of our employees have been with us for many years. It’s our pleasure to serve the residents of Kentwood, Wyoming, Walker, Plainfield Charter Township, Ada, Lowell, Grand Rapids Charter Township, and East Grand Rapids. Your family becomes our family and it shows. You Can Meet Our Friendly Staff Here.

Independence with assistance. Assistance with independence.

Some of our amenities include a beautiful dining room with a wide variety of menu selections, a gift shop, beauty shop, billiards, sauna, library, whirlpool, and limo service to appointments and outings. We offer very large studio, one- and two-bedroom, and deluxe units. Sentinel Pointe also offers assistance with dressing, bathing, medications, and more, as needed. We’re a proud sponsor of the 2013 Senior Leadership Grand Rapids program at Grand Rapids Community College, Older Learner Center.
