Approximately 55 miles northwest of Detroit, Holly is a small community that’s home to almost 1,000 seniors aged 65 and over, representing 15% of its total residents. The city is ideal for those who prefer natural, open spaces; residents can take a walk through the Seven Lakes State Park, and they can also visit the Holly Township Beach and the Sorensen Park. Retirees can also go fishing at the Rose Oaks County Park.

Holly’s older population is close to 23 assisted living facilities, where they have access to multiple health care services, including constant supervision, therapeutic treatments, recreational activities and assistance with daily tasks. Holly’s assisted living costs are not reported in the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, so we’re using costs of its neighbor, Flint. Seniors in these two areas can expect to pay an average of $3,669 per month for assisted living. This rate is 14% lower than the statewide average of $4,200, or $531 less. The city is even more affordable than the U.S. median of $4,300 per month, being lower by 17% or $631.
