Building and Common Areas
King’s Daughters Home offers a distinct setting and atmosphere. The building, designed by Alden B. Dow, is a treasured landmark of Midland architecture. Alden B. Dow was known for his organic architecture. Dow's favorite maxim is a perfect description of King’s Daughters Home - “Gardens never end, and buildings never begin.” To that end, each room has massive windows to let the sunlight and scenery in. Outside, you’ll find lush landscaped courtyards, doves and chickadees visiting feeders, and Monarchs flitting between black-eyed Susans.
Inside our building, warm wood-tone floors span throughout the halls, dining rooms, salon, and other areas. The living room and residences in the assisted living area are carpeted. Hallways are wide, and common areas are arranged and furnished to encourage conversation and relaxation. Our walls show colorful, original artwork. In fact, our dining room has a hand-painted mural of Midland’s own Tridge. (If you don't know what a Tridge is, then you've clearly never been to Midland!)
Licensed for assisted living and nursing services, we offer a continuum of care – which means we’ll meet each resident’s needs as life circumstances change.
On the assisted living side of our building, up to 30 residents can live in single rooms or apartments that contain a living room, bedroom, and a bath. In our nursing care center, up to 29 residents can live in single or double rooms.
All of our rooms have built in shelves and drawers, ample lighting, and layouts conducive to safety and care. Our residents may bring their own chairs, televisions, dressers, or other favorite furnishings as space permits. We encourage our residents to make their space as familiar, inviting, and homey as they like.
Residents enjoy a fresh and clean environment with weekly room cleaning and laundry services, bed and bath linens are provided, and rooms are continually maintained and updated.
