  • UMRC serves older adults across 12 Michigan counties, from 9 locations, caring for more seniors than ever before.
  • UMRC leads the state in offering the most diverse array of services and housing choices for older adults at all income levels.


You might also be surprised to learn that:

  • Every day, 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65.
  • In 2016, our Benevolent Care needs will rise by 15%, to $1.2 million.
  • 70% of UMRC residents who receive Benevolent Care are 96 years or older.


You should be proud to know that:

  • 100% of your gift to Benevolent Care – EVERY PENNY – goes directly to providing loving care of the highest quality for our seniors who have exhausted their resources.


Thank you for making a life-changing difference for older adults!
