    Seniors with dementia and their loved ones can choose from nine memory care facilities that are located in Washtenaw County. These facilities, along with assisted living facilities, are officially known as homes for the aged throughout the state. Both levels of care are subject to a similar set of rules and regulations and as such, are often housed within the same facility. All homes for the aged in Michigan are overseen by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

    • The air quality in Washtenaw County has been assigned a passing grade by the American Lung Association. That means that seniors can breath the air in the county comfortably with little concern for what effect it may have on their health.
    • The Washtenaw County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Michigan University Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
