In the 1930s a businessman by the name of Welch sponsored production of a race car and requested it be named after the town of Novi, Michigan. Even though the Novi special race car never won an Indianapolis 500 race, its likeness is proudly displayed today on a water tower in Novi, Michigan. This kind of town charm is only one of the reasons Novi has been on lists of the best places live and work in Family Circle and Money Magazine.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Novi
- The air quality in the greater Detroit area is not great. It receives a "C" rating from the National Lung Association for particle pollution and an "F" rating for ozone levels, which means the air in Novi could cause a problem for seniors with respiratory illness.
- Novi has a high cost of living compared to other parts of the United States and even other parts of Michigan. The overall cost of living is 19 percent higher than the national average. However, most of that increase is due to the cost of housing, something seniors in an ALF won't have to directly contend with.

Crime is not nearly the problem in Novi that it is in other parts of Michigan. The crime rate in Novi is 59 percent lower than the national average and 51 percent lower than the Michigan average, so ALF residents on day trips can feel more secure.
