Staff members and residents of an assisted living center in Michigan have reported seeing and hearing strange things over the years. Witnesses to the events believe that the nursing home is haunted, the Grand Haven Tribune reported on Monday.

The Grand Pines Assisted Living Center in Grand Haven, Michigan is believed to be haunted by the ghosts of its past residents. Staff and residents have reported seeing strange things and hearing odd sounds in various parts of the building.

In August 2010, one caregiver received a mysterious note on her medical cart. It read: "We are from the plane. Lost. We will not hurt you! Honest!" The message appeared when she was assisting a resident. At first the nurse believed a resident wrote the note but all of the residents that wing were Alzheimer patients that couldn't write.

"I was working in the kitchen and when I walked out into the dining room, I saw a man in the corner of my eye. When I turned around to see who it was, there was no one there. I was the only one in the dining room," one staff member said.

The employee was so frightened of the incident that she called her mother who had worked there and described the man. Her mother said that it resembled a man named Dan who had died two years earlier. Other staff members and residents have also encountered Dan's ghost.

"I walked into a Dan's widow's room to put her snack on her night stand. She looked at me straight in the eye and told me that Dan woke her up today. Of course, I freaked out at that moment and walked out of her room," another staff member said.

Some people have reported seeing the ghost of a little girl on the third floor. When staff checks to see if there are children visitors, there are never any registered.

According to the staff of Grand Pines, most of the activity seems to occur on second shift. All of the nursing home's employees seem to be aware of it.
