The Detroit area also has several memory care facilities in the form of Alzheimer’s/Dementia units within licensed nursing homes and homes for the aged. Such facilities in Detroit and the rest of the Great Lakes State are governed by the Bureau of Community and Health Systems (BCHS) under the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).
