Independent Living in Michigan

Michigan, bordered by four of the five Great Lakes, is appropriately known as the “Great Lakes State.” Residents of Michigan have plenty of opportunities for boating and fishing, and during the winter snow, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and skiing. If sports aren’t your thing, there’s more than enough time to just relax by the water. The state’s makeup is varied, ranging from the Great Lakes to the vast forests of the upper peninsula, major cities like Detroit, and charming college towns like Ann Arbor. Michigan truly has something for everyone and is a fantastic place to retire.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 310 retirement communities in Michigan that offer independent living. The median monthly cost of independent living in Michigan is about $2,500.

Recent reviews of Independent Living in Elk Rapids, MI
Traverse Manor in Traverse City, MI
4.7

I can only comment on the independent living part of Traverse Manor. The value here is certainly five star, it's almost half the price of another facility we lived at. They do not have the strict rules that the assisted living facility we were at had, if I want I can have a half dozen people visit me in my apartment. I would give them a 4 for the food, the menu is not very interesting and the vegetables are always overcooked. I consider myself a bit of a gourmet, so my standards may be different from others. I like that for small maintenance job I can fix it or my friend can fix it without having to get a manager's approval. The independent living option is a much better fit for us. [Cannot accurately score the Care Services and Activities since we don't participate in either.]

Northport Highlands
5.0

Both my parents have moved into Northport Highlands. My mother needed it more so than my father, but it comforted my family and I knowing that this is the place that is taking care of them. They have such a friendly staff, the place is always clean and it seems like there is always something for the residents to do. I don’t have to worry about my parents getting to any doctor appointments as they are always taken care of. Northport Highlands is very transparent and communicates exceptionally well when it comes to the status of my parents. I have toured 4 places with my parents before they chose this one. They love it and I’m glad they’re happy.
