New housing complex to serve Detroit's senior citizens
Henry Ford, Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, and United Methodist Retirement Communities are involved in the $35 million project on the city’s east side.
The complex will include affordable senior housing, assisted living units, and a Center for Senior Independence.
John Polanski , President and CEO of Henry Ford’s Community Care Services Division, says Detroit’s seniors lack many options for long-term physical and social care.
“The goal is to keep them out of nursing homes, and provide an innovative approach to both health care as well as social well-being.”
Polanski says the complex will be open to seniors who are nursing-home eligible, and qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid.
Other financing will come from the city of Detroit, Wayne County, and the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.
