great staff

Even though they are currently undergoing construction the community is very clean. We have not had first hand experience with the meals but every time we do come to visit they look great. It sees like they have different activities going on all the time, there are magic shoes, all different card games and they even bring in different speakers. Based on our experience so far we would recommend the American House community to other families.

I have lived here for 5 years. It was best when i moved in, with great food and good support. Thru the years this decreased, there was a high staff overturn. Then things improved. The administration is very good, and they mingle with the residents. I am very happy here.

Tour of American House

We saw American House 3 times actually. This was our 2nd choice, the facility was beautiful. The reason we did not go with them was because it is 3 levels so my mom would have had to take the elevator and I just could not see her liking that. Also when we went there I did not see many residents out of their rooms.

Highly recommend

We chose American House Carpenter Senior Living because I live in the area and it is only 15 minutes from my house. It was also the least expensive and I felt the quality was good enough for what we needed. In comparison to what is around here and what they want, it is a good value for the dollar. The apartment sizes are really nice, she is in a bungalow and she was able to fit all of her belongings in here and has a lot of storage space. She has a nice view of the courtyard from her room and the courtyard here is very pretty. I think the facilities are easy to manage and user friendly and I would recommend them.

Affordable senior living

We chose American House because of the affordability, the location, and past experience with relatives being here. The apartment sizes here are spacious. I have eaten here before COVID and the meals were very nice. Now with COVID, they are delivering the meals to the residents and everything is prepackaged. The best part about this community has been the socialization for my mother in law, and for us, they are great at keeping us informed. I would recommend.

Thank you Bree!!!

American House is turning out to be a wonderful place for my mom. She's very social so loves being around all the people and is making a lot of friends very fast. American House has a lot of groups come in for entertainment - last night there was a Brazilian Martial Arts Group! I stopped by to watch with mom - it was so much fun! Staff is very helpful and accomodating. American House was an excellent choice for us! Thank you [name removed]from "A Place for Mom" for helping with our many questions to figure out what to do, where to start and where to look! I really appreciate you :)

The Most Wonderful Experience!!

We moved our Mother from an Ann Arbor Assisted Living that was a terrible experience for our family, to American House. American House has exceeded our expectations in daily care, activities, accountability in services , communication, and even daily contact with Administrators and Staff. It has been an enjoyable, clean and friendly environment that has put our mom and family at great ease. Last night they completely overwhelmed us with the most outstanding Family Christmas Party! We could not have imagined a more perfect evening. Their Chefs seamlessly prepared a gourmet meal, from appetizers to dessert to 260 guests! The elegant meal was served by smiling, joyfilled staff, with tables and room decorated, live music, and a cheerful handsome Santa who came to each resident bringing joy and comfort. AH staff worked so very hard last night and left the residents and families feeling loved and served. We were in awe the entire evening. Our only regret is that along with taking our mom from the former AA Assisted Living, is that we could not bring those sweet elderly left behind there to our American House. Our experience between the two is incomparable. Thank you American House Administrators and Staff for showing our elderly the respect and dignity they deserve, and being accountable to those who trust you.

American house is a place where the staff put their hearts into service and care for not only their residents, but the residents families. We have benefited from their services for the last few months. The activities are organized and timely, the housekeeping is efficient, the chief is creative and rotates meals well, servers work diligently, maintanance keeps building in good repair, and management is personal in their care. The medical team offers a lot of services as well. We recommend American House because it's a place your loved one and extended family can truely say they have a great home/family to be with and share memories/ life with.

Mom's Choice

I really liked the American House Carpenter Senior Living community, one reason was that it was close to my house. It was a very nice and clean community that we toured. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We chose another community that my mom decided was closer to her friends and where she had lived all of her life.

Easy Floor Plan to Navigate

My dad is blind so being in a place where the floor plan is easy to navigate was extremely important to us. He seems to have settled in well and is liking it so far. He is making some friends and with his handicap, it makes it rough joining anything but he does attend a bible study group which he enjoys very much. He says the food is good portions are well balanced. The staff is friendly and very helpful and they keep in contact with us if there are any concerns or issues.

I like it, loved one depends on the day.

It is very clean and the staff and residents that I usually see when visiting are very friendly and helpful. My loved one has gotten more depressed since being there, but I think that comes it costing her and my siblings so much she can no longer afford to go out and enjoy herself. She's always complaining that the housekeeping staff will come in and make the roommates bed then leavr without making hers. In the amount of time she says it takes for help to come when she pushes the emergency button around her neck she'd get faster help calling one of us kids to come help. When help does arrive they check on the roommate first. As for the food I've had some and while not as hot as I'd like I thought it tasted pretty good. My loved one on the other hand does nothing but complain about it. I like the place and I'm always made to feel welcome , however my loved one it depends on her mood at the time you ask her.

I would give it a 5 plus!

I am very impressed with the American house when you walk in you can feel that it is sunny, bright and well lit. They have so many activities available at all times. I think it is so cute how the residents give me updates on how she is doing. They do an excellent job with the security, cleanliness, and meals. She is participating in the exercise programs. It has been a positive experience so far.

Having a Blast at This Community

My mother in law loves it here at this community. She is really enjoying her time here. We were concerned at first, because she wasn't a very socializing person, but she has made many new friends. That is very surprising, and nice to see. My wife is very impressed with this community. Everything is very well-kept. It is a good, safe community, and I would recommend it. It has worked out very well for our family.
