    Ann Arbor is the home of the University of Michigan, which has a significant impact on the city's economy and culture. Seniors will have plenty to keep them busy in this vibrant city — art, music, festivals, football games.

    The Michigan Bureau of Child and Adult Licensing, a part of the Department of Human Services, regulates the 26 assisted living facilities located in and around Ann Arbor. This type of facility in Michigan is often referred to as a home for the aged, and it typically serves 21 or more residents who are 60 or older. Any facility in Michigan that provides both housing and some level of care requires a license and is subject to regular inspections by state administrators.
