    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mason

    In 1865, Mason was incorporated as a village and during the 19th century, Mason enjoyed being the center of Ingham County activity. While Lansing eventually became the state capital, Mason remained the Ingham County Seat.

    Of Mason's 29,000 residents, 23 percent are 65 and over. These seniors may eventually need to look into assisted living facilities (ALFs). There are 32 in the Mason area, and they are regulated by the Michigan Bureau of Child and Adult Licensing, a division of the Department of Human Services. The State of Michigan defines ALFs as those that have 25 or more residents, aged 55 or older, needing assistance with daily tasks like bathing and grooming.
