About Burcham Hills Retirement Community, East Lansing, Michigan

Located on 38 beautiful acres near Michigan State University and just a few miles from the Michigan State Capitol, Burcham Hills has been East Lansing’s leading not-for-profit senior living community since 1974. As a Life Plan Community (also often known as a continuing care retirement community, or CCRC), we make aging in place simple by offering a comprehensive continuum of care for every stage of life—including independent living, assisted living, memory care, long-term skilled nursing, and short-term rehab—right on our campus. We also provide outpatient therapy for recovery from illness, injury, or elective procedure.

At Burcham Hills, we’re committed to a holistic approach to total senior health and well-being. That’s why we provide a wide variety of programs and services that focus on all 8 Dimensions of Wellness.
