Maplewood of Sandy Creek

A Laurel Assisted Living Community

If you are looking to maintain your independence but need a little help each day, Maplewood of Sandy Creek, an assisted living community operated by Ciena Healthcare, is the perfect choice for you. Located in Wayland, Michigan, we offer a safe, small town atmosphere with easy access to Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

Our 20-unit community offers the best in assisted living: a private, comfortable home without the worries of maintenance, utilities, lawn care and property taxes – and lots of opportunities for both private time and mixing with neighbors and friends. Our quiet residential setting will make you feel like you’re still in your home.

While we help you stay as active as you want through crafts, games, classes, celebrations and community outings, we also will treat you as an individual and tailor our services to meet your unique needs and preferences. Services you may choose from include private accommodations, medication supervision, housekeeping and laundry services, transportation and on-site fine dining.  Our assisted living community is attached to The Laurels of Sandy Creek skilled nursing and rehabilitation center and benefits from the availability of around-the-clock professional nursing coverage and on-site therapy staff.  

At Maplewood of Sandy Creek, caring is more than providing an excellent assisted living community; it is offering respect, dignity, companionship, and compassion to every person, every day. It's what we call The Laurel Way of Caring, and it comes from within every one of our associates.

Respite Care

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.

"I get treated well by the staff and the food is good, I even get a choice of what I'd like to eat. My family is glad that I'm being well cared for in this nice clean facility, it gives them peace of mind."


"I came to Maplewood last November when my husband of 63 years was admitted to The Laurels side for therapy and then end of life care. The compassion and care that the aides showed me during Harm’s sickness and death was wonderful."


"Mom always has good things to say about the staff, the food, and the friends she has made, like her roommate Betty. My sisters and I are happy that Mom is so content and receives the care she needs both at The Laurels and at Maplewood of Sandy Creek."
