Senior Living in Detroit

When you think of senior living, you might think of palm trees or desert air. But relocating to a warmer climate is not always the first choice of older adults. In fact, most adults choose to retire in the same state or neighborhood they have always lived in. Detroit and the surrounding suburbs offer older residents the opportunity to retire in a state they love, experience the beauty of all four seasons, and stick close to friendly neighbors. 

Detroit offers highlights that many adults look for in retirement: easy to navigate public transportation, access to exceptional healthcare, opportunities to explore nature - all at a more reasonable monthly cost. The Detroit area also has a robust senior support network, including the local Area Agency on Aging and city senior centers for independent seniors on the move. Further, Michigan is known as a retirement-friendly state, where Social Security income is not taxed.

And yes, you absolutely can find luxury senior living in Detroit. Adults looking to retire in the Detroit area have the option of many different assisted living communities. And the types of care abound; from independent living, assisted living and memory care to skilled nursing facilities, there are so many living options in the city. Each features their own amenities and services. These luxury communities offer personalized support and a network of neighbors who are always up for catching up over coffee, attending a wine tasting, or playing a round of bocce ball.High End Senior Living in Detroit
