2022 Top Michigan Senior Living Communities

Are you looking for a senior living home for you or a loved one? This is an important life step. You’ll want to ensure you are receiving the best quality and services possible, but like anything, not all assisted living communities are the same. The good news is the options are varied, but the search can feel overwhelming. So where to begin? 

There are hundreds of providers in Michigan, and reviewing and comparing all of them would take months. Thankfully, we’ve done this research for you and narrowed down the top 15 centers. Another excellent resource is our senior living directory. You can filter and search according to your specific needs, and if you require any assistance in this process, do be sure to contact us. A professional advisor is available to guide and help you arrive at an informed decision.

Tip: Using Elderly Care Expenses as Tax Deductions
Long-term care services can become quite costly over time. This is especially true if health worsens and medical issues become more complex to treat. Thankfully, the IRS does offer tax deductions if the senior’s expenses are over 10 percent of their gross (adjusted) income. A licensed Michigan tax advisor will have additional information and whether the qualification also requires the person to be considered chronically ill.  

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in Michigan

Michigan has a wide assortment of assisted living homes for the elderly. Our team combed through thousands of reviews on Google and Facebook, and then compared those to the reviews left on our site. While reviews are helpful, we also reviewed the Michigan Department of Health to ensure that our top choices did not have outstanding violations or citations. Each community was provided a score on a 1 to 5 scale and points were deducted if any infractions were discovered. 

The average monthly price for a Michigan senior living center is approximately $2,948. There are an array of homes for mature adults in the state, and higher priced communities typically offer memory care along with skilled nursing care. In general, most facilities provide meals, services, and basic amenities in their base price.

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Village of Westland:

My 91 year old mother-in-law has lived here for over 5 years. She always tells me how wonderful the staff is! She loves her 1 bedroom apartment complete with a kitchen, living room, dining room and full bathroom. She walks down to the dining room where she eats great food with friends she has met. They are all currently wearing masks and there are dividers in the dining room. Crafts, exercise, movie night and other activities have started up again during the pandemic but only 10 people at a time. My mind is relieved with her living in such an awesome place!!

What residents and loved ones have to say about Balfour of Ann Arbor:

My folks moved to Balfour right when it opened. They loved the overall design, the food, and the wonderful staff. They soon needed more assistance, and Balfours staff has been incredible every step of the way. The staff treats residents with care, dignity, and good humor. When difficult health issues arise, they support the residents and their families to an extraordinary degree. Highly recommended.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Caretel Inns of Lakeland:

Julian and Martha are starting to settle in. Both of them like their small suit of 1 bedroom, living room and the mini kitchen. Julian was always a busy person and at age 93 he finds it a bit hard to slow down, but he is making progress. Martha on the other hand is embracing the relaxed atmosphere at Caretel. They are very pleased with the staff and their attentiveness towards the Residents. Camile deserves a special mention for making their transition so pleasant.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Independence Village of Plymouth:

The staff here is caring and wonderful. Debbie Hall goes above an beyond for you. Its very clean, the food is great, especially the Brownies. Lots of activities for the residents to do. The main lobby is cozy with the fireplace and the bird reserve is delightful in the winter when you cant go out side and bird watch. It is also nice that they have a hair salon right on site my grandma was blind and this made is easier to get her hair done by not having to leave the building. I also appreciate that IVY does a lot of community outreach and they take the time to interact with the entire community and sponsor events.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Brighton Manor:

This facility is Absolutely Gorgeous. From the open floor plan to the two Beautiful waterfalls and a BBQ with an outdoor eating area. You will think you are at a modern hotel not an Assisted Living facility. The Staff and Management are very caring and helpful every time I visit. They have the residents best interests at heart. Parking seemed to be the only issue I had but they probably didn’t think they would grow so fast.
