What to Consider About Assisted Living in Detroit

Detroit, nicknamed the Motor City and known as the car capital of the world, is located on the Detroit River in southeast Michigan. The city was also the birthplace of the Motown Sound, a sub-genre of R&B and is home to a large population of which 12.6 percent are seniors. Detroit has 17 assisted living facilities (ALFs) for seniors to choose from. The state of Michigan uses the term Home for the Aged instead of ALFs and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs licenses and defines these as facilities that provide room and board, supervision, protection and personal care.

  • Winters can get quite chilly in Detroit which may be a concern for seniors who like outdoor activities. Temps in January can fall to 19 degrees Fahrenheit and average snowfall is around 32 inches per year, above the U.S. average of 26.
