What to Consider About Assisted Living in Flat Rock
Flat Rock, situated along the Detroit River in southwest Michigan, was founded by Michael Vreeland when his family built the first grain and lumber mill in the area. The village was incorporated in 1923 before being registered as a city in 1965. Today, Flat Rock prides itself on its rich history and small-town feel and is home to 9,878 people, with seniors making up 10.4% of the population. Some of the city’s seniors may enjoy a visit to the Flat Rock Speedway or the Methodist Episcopal Church, the oldest church of its type in the entire state. Area seniors who would like assistance with personal care have two assisted living facilities to choose from in the city, and another 12 facilities located in nearby communities.
In Flat Rock and throughout Michigan, assisted living facilities are called homes for the aged and adult foster care, dependent on the level of care provided. Both types of facilities are licensed and governed by the Department of Human Services.
