UMRC Foundation’s Garden Party Presenting Sponsor – AZ Shmina
The UMRC Foundation is grateful for its Garden Party Presenting Sponsor, AZ Shmina Building Contractors. Construction has been a way of life for the Shmina family since 1916. Andy Shmina, now President of AZ Shmina, joined the company in 1993.
AZ Shmina specializes in healthcare, educational, and other nonprofit construction across southeast Michigan. Their first project with UMRC was the expansion of Huron Valley PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly), doubling the size and capacity of its Day Health Center in Ypsilanti, which was completed in 2018. Since then, AZ Shmina has been part of the expansion project at Thome PACE in Jackson and, most recently, the newly renovated Mackinaw Dining Room at Chelsea Retirement Community.
AZ Shmina has a philosophy of giving back to the communities and organizations where it works, including UMRC.
“I have learned a lot about caring for the elderly over the last several years,” says Andy. “I used to think of UMRC as a nursing home, but it’s so much more. The continuum of care provides for older adults at all stages of their life and their journey, whether independent living, assisted living, memory care, or skilled care and rehabilitation. I am honored to have the opportunity to create nice places for older adults to live, especially those with limited means.”
Andy shares that it’s important to him to honor the aging population and the sacrifices they have made, and to treat everyone with dignity and respect. “Older adults need a sense of purpose and a sense of community,” says Andy. “You’ve got it here at UMRC.”
