"We were ready for a change after 28 years. We liked the idea of making friends with people that we would have more in common with, and we like that we’re close to our daughter and two grandchildren in Detroit with enough space for them to visit.”

Understanding Senior Living Options

What is right for you or your family?

Independent Living Communities (Michigan Shores)

These residential communities provide active, older adults with the security & companionship of a community without the hassle of home maintenance.  Independent living communities generally offer a full range of planned social activities to their residents.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities​

Continuing care retirement communities allow seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle with the knowledge that if they become sick or frail, their needs will continue to be met.  

Assisted Living Communities

Assisted living provides personal care & supportive services to seniors who need help with the activities of daily living.  These communities are designed for individuals who cannot function in an independent living environment but do not need nursing care on a daily basis. 

Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers

Nursing Care Centers provide care to individuals who need specialized care on a regular basis but do not need to be hospitalized.  A basic daily rate is charged for fundamental services that every resident receives and additional charges apply for supplemental services.  Care is administered by nursing professional under the direction of a physician.
