I visited this residence five years before my aunt was ready to move; three years later, my husband and I did a thorough spreadsheet comparing different places and Grand Court came in at #1. Six months before she moved, I did one last check and confirmed that this was the right place for my aunt, someone who needed an affordable community with support, activities, and attention. But here's what you can't rate on a spreadsheet: how good will the care be; how responsive is the staff? From my experiences there, I can say that it is superb and must be so because of personal commitment. I wasn't able to finalize phone service and a new phone was needed. It was installed within hours of receipt at the front desk, late Friday afternoon and Mark, the person who is on duty nights and weekends, had gone in to show her how to operate the answering system. At 8:45 PM on Friday! A new showerhead was needed; it, too, was installed the same afternoon that it arrived. Apparently, the person at the front desk alerted one of the maintenance people. When I asked my aunt if she needed extra help, she said, "Oh, no, not at all. I have all I need, and people here are so ready to help." This is a great relief for me, since I live in Virginia and can't be in Michigan often. Whoever does the hiring for Grand Court has done a fine job because the executive director, Mike, l, the marketing director, Kathy, and their assistant Greg are just super. The same goes for all the other staff I encountered there, from the maintenance man who manages to hang pictures perfectly in 5 minutes to Tasha, who waits on tables and is so considerate of new residents. This is a good, good place. You can't fake sincerity and you can't get commitment from people who are just watching the clock. I am happy and very relieved that my aunt's welfare is in such good, capable, and caring hands.

I liked what the Grand Court Farmington Hills offered, their location, and the price. My dad's room is nice and the staff is nice. The grounds are well-kept. It's a nice place.

I visited this facility

The accommodations at Grand Court were really awesome. They even have a screened off porch you can go to in the summertime. I didn?t stay for lunch but everything seemed to be nice. They showed me the apartment that they offered and I loved it.

The facilities are clean, orderly and generally well-maintained. It's apparant that the staff do what they can to make the environment comfortable and enjoyable for every one of the residents. The residents, of course, vary in their needs in terms of care and involvement, but each time I visit, I note that those who seem to really require assistance are provided with it, and those who are able to function primarily without assistance are afforded a comfortable level of independence. The living arrangements are simple, but nice. The personal space is adequate for one person, but I cannot imagine trying to fit the lives of two adults in one of the apartments. The apartments are equipped with basic kitchens, though the dining hall serves meals regularly enough to where my grandmother rarely feels the need to cook. It seems as though residents have all that they need, and much of what they would want. I often have to coordinate my visits so as not to interfere with my grandmother's social activities around the facility, including bingo, movies, musical performances and entertainment of any variety. The facility also provides some limited transportation to and from local businesses if or when residents want to buy groceries, clothes or anything else available in a few local shopping centers. Planned trips to concerts or other entertainment events are also not uncommon, and while I'm not certain if involvement in those trips is included in the monthly rates, it seems as though my grandmother enjoys them enough to keep going. All in all, I'm happy to know that she enjoys her new living arrangements and that a moderate decrease in independence was at least mostly offset by socialization and activity, and that there was thus no appreciable decrease in her quality of life during what may be her most precious years.

They have the cheapest rates for what they offered out of all the facilities we've looked at. The amount of money, what we needed, it seemed to be the best value. It seemed to be a nice facility. The staff was very helpful and nice. They had a lot of activities there and they also had a rehab center on the site. They had a pleasant dining area and mom's room is spacious and bright. I know that the outside fire doors at the end of the hallways though are very hard to open for the older person, so I hope they can fix that. I am assured of leaving my mom in their care. I liked the place overall.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I've only been a week here and I'm still learning myself. I particularly like the porch. Everyone has a porch. It has a full kitchen it's more or less like a small house, and the bathroom is nice. I think that this facility is good or I would have not moved here. I'm still adjusting but the staff is nice.

I visited this facility

I think Grand Court of Farmington Hills, is an excellent choice for anyone who is looking for a placement for a friend or family member. While there, I noticed that the residents were socializing and eating their dinner and the food looked excellent and the residents conveyed to me that the food also taste excellent as well. The California style looking motel looks like a great but unique vacations resort getaway. The residents resort style living looks like they are on their vacation instead of living there. It is so very unique but comfortable looking. Grand Court of Farmington Hills offer exceptional Services amenities and opportunities for their residents. They also offer their residents a Spiritual Based community as well in their facility. The facility is clean and does not smell. The surrounding suburban neighborhoods' are very beautiful and well landscaped, maintained and structured and is such a quiet and beautiful living area. The management and staff there are very nice and professional, team, task oriented in their job duties and their performances. They also offer their residents special events and group activities. It has a very contemporary style décor and it is very well coordinated to match as well. The residents like it there and I would recommend Grand Court of Farmington Hills, to anyone and everyone that is looking for placement for a friend or a family member. It is like living in a fabulous hotel in Phoenix Arizona it looks like summer all year round with its unique structure. The staff treats the residents like family and the residents there like it there. In general, I would rank this facility on a five stars rating for its expertise and excellence. I know that the residents there receive excellent care there and they are very happy there also.
