I visited this facility

I visited American House Dearborn Heights for my parents. I thought it was a nice community. It was set up a little bit different than where my parents are at now. They did have meals available. It is a smaller campus, and so it offers better availability for services. The only thing is they did not have availability. Nevertheless, the community was very friendly. They were open to showing you the facility. They were helpful in answering any questions that you ask. It had a very good atmosphere. At the time that I went, they did have a person that was doing activities. The residents were very cheerful. Also the place was very clean. I like the atmosphere. However, like I said, they didn't have the availability at that time.

The staff at American House was fine. I didn’t have any problems with it, but it was not what I was looking for. I like their programs, but I didn’t like the fact they didn’t have handicapped accessible rooms to choose from. Their dining room was fine though.

The staff at American House was very nice and knowledgeable as far as my husband’s diabetes. They knew what type of food to bring. Everything was nice, clean, and orderly. The apartments weren’t as large in size; there wasn’t enough space, and there is one bathroom, but it is fine.

American House did not have any openings. It was pretty nice. The apartments were large and clean. The studio apartment was very large for a studio, so you have a choice between it and a one-bedroom apartment. The staff was helpful, friendly, and very professional. They had church services.

American House is very nice, and they have lots to offer. It is the location that we are looking at because my children are living further south. I have nothing bad to say about them. They have field trips to the casino and to special events like opera or plays. They answered everything we have questions for.
Provider Response

I'm happy to hear you loved our community! We do have other locations, if you'd like to call me so we can talk about different areas your loved one could live. Please call me at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

Mom has finally decided to go into American House, so that's where she is now. It's a wonderful place, and it's larger than where she was. She has a buddy there now. They have a lot of activities. They have scheduled meals in a large dining room and so many more things than she was getting before. They come in weekly for cleaning.
Provider Response

My father-in-law has been in American House for about a month and a half now. The food is good. The people take care of him and he is happy to be there. The facility is very nice. It felt like a hotel when I walked in there for the first time. It's been good so far.
Provider Response

We consider it a great compliment that our community makes you feel like it’s as relaxing and comfortable as a hotel! I am happy to hear that your father-in-law is enjoying living here — and we’re glad to have him! Stop on by to say hello sometime, or if you ever need anything don’t hesitate to give me a call.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I visited my grandmother who has lived there for 1 year. She says that she enjoys it but says it can get lonely sometimes. I try to to visit her as much as I can. There are many activities to do there, individual and group. She says the food there is okay but decent. The staff is friendly and transportation is available if needed. She likes relaxing in the garden with a book or watching television. There is security when one enters the building. Room service and guest meals are available. They have private bathroom and climate control systems. 24 emergency services are available. Some even have a small kitchenette.I believe my grandmother was looking to move to new facility, somewhere closer to where most of her family lives. She is looking at places in Florida and California. She says the place is nice but does not enjoy the Michigan winters.
Provider Response

Dear dpiston, We do try to make sure that our residents have plenty of activities, amenities and opportunity for interaction and socialization. I'm sure your grandmother appreciates your visits since, although our staff members truly care for our residents, nothing replaces being with family. Ah, these Michigan winters! Although the Florida sunshine is nice, there's nothing quite like looking out the window at the snow softly falling and drinking a nice, hot cup of cocoa. Hopefully your grandmother will decide to stay here with us. If you, your grandmother or anyone else ever needs anything, my door is always open. Please feel free to stop in!

Sincerely, Elizabeth Garr Executive Director (313) 278-6430
