Everything is right there for him. He's got a level of independence. It's been a really good fit for him. The staff has been exceptional.

Hagen: "My Mom has been here for 5 months now and has adjusted very well. There are always activities to do if she wants to and meals are optional so she just goes down to the restaurant when she is hungry. The bus driver Steve has gone out of his way many times to help with her groceries. Everyone is treated like family. Overall we are happy with her apartment and the facility. "

Karen: "We toured Brookdale Grand Blanc. It was very impressive, the staff was very friendly, but the the office girl that was going to do our tour was busy, so the chef took us on tour and explained the facility to us.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Durand

  • The Durand area has few facilities to choose from in the event of medical emergencies or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Owosso.

  • There are no public transportation options in Durand, meaning seniors may need to rely on family or friends to help them travel throughout the area. Some homes for the aged may offer shuttle services to take residents to medical appointments when required.

  • The state of Michigan doesn't tax social security income. Seniors may be able to use these savings towards the cost of assisted living.
