The Arbor Inn was very similar to the one I chose, but they did not think they could accommodate my mom in her condition when went for the interview. It did not have a dementia ward. They had an activity director. There was a pool table, a TV room, and an activity room where they could play games.Read more The Arbor Inn reviews
The Arbor Inn was very good. The staff was very informative and gave me the help I needed. The rooms were nice. Everything was in one floor, which I liked. They were really accommodating with people who had dementia. The staff was very nice, answered all of my questions, and helped me contact someone to help me out. Sh...Read more The Arbor Inn reviews
I liked The Arbor Inn. The visit was great. The place looked great and I think it was clean. It was a great-looking place. I would love to put my mother there, but when they assessed her, they said she didn't fit the criteria because she has UTI and dementia. However, they woke her up early in the morning, so of course...Read more The Arbor Inn reviews
The Arbor Inn is an assisted living facility. The rooms were fine, but it's not really what I was looking for. I've seen the workout room and the social room where they would watch movies and play cards. The dining area was restaurant style.

According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, while Macomb County’s average monthly assisted living costs exceed both the state and national average by several hundred dollars, they fall in the midrange for this region of Michigan. With expenses averaging just under $4,000 a month, care in nearby Flint and Jackson is slightly less costly than in Macomb County, while services in Ann Arbor, Monroe and the Lansing area, which houses the state capital, cost a minimum of $250 more.
Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Macomb County specifically, so data for the overlapping Detroit area was used.
The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Costs for senior care services in Macomb County vary widely by type. Nursing home expenses are nearly double those of assisted living, while adult day health services are substantially less costly. In-home care, including homemaker services and home health aides, cost $200 to $300 more per month than assisted living, although the expenses for these programs can fluctuate depending upon how many hours of care are needed. When researching the costs of in-home services, seniors should factor in expenses associated with staying in their house, including mortgage or rent, HOA fees, utilities and general upkeep.
Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
Serving low-income state residents, Michigan’s Medicaid program provides comprehensive health care benefits such as annual preventative health exams, general physician visits, emergency care, mental health services, inpatient hospital care, and transportation to medical appointments.
The program sets specific income and asset requirements to determine eligibility. For individuals, monthly income must not exceed $1,041 with $2,000 in assets. For married applicants with both spouses applying, monthly income must not exceed $1,409 with $3,000 in assets. Married couples with only one spouse applying should refer to individual income and asset limits. While Medicaid counts all sources of income, certain assets are excluded, including an individual’s home, car, personal possessions and irrevocable burial trusts.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services website offers additional information on eligibility and benefits. People who are ready to apply can do so online at MI Bridges. To speak with someone directly about the program, seniors can call one of Macomb County’s MDHHS offices at (586) 469-7700, (586) 254-1500 or (586) 427-0600.
MI Choice Waiver
The MI Choice waiver dispenses funds for senior care services in their home or at an assisted living facility, providing an alternative for Michigan seniors aged 65 and older who demonstrate a medical or functional need for a nursing home level of care but who would prefer to live more independently. Medicaid-eligible seniors may qualify to receive personal care, skilled nursing services, counseling, emergency response systems and medical supplies that are nonreimbursable under Medicaid. Care coordination may also be provided.
Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
Area seniors choosing at-home or assisted living care rather than a nursing facility may qualify to receive social and medical services through PACE Southeast Michigan. Macomb County residents aged 55 and older who meet Michigan state requirements for nursing home care may be eligible for preventative care and comprehensive support services through this program. Seniors must be able to live safely in a residential community setting with support in order to qualify for the program. A trained eldercare team works with eligible applicants to develop a personalized care plan, which may include personal care, registered nurse services and prescribed medications.
Seniors don’t need to be Medicaid-eligible for this program and can pay privately for the portion of the premium that Medicaid would normally cover. Applicants who qualify for Medicare and Medicaid don’t pay out-of-pocket costs. Seniors who receive the MI Choice waiver are not eligible for this program.
To find out more about benefits and eligibility requirements, seniors can speak to one of PACE Southeast Michigan’s eldercare representatives at (855) 445-4554 or fill out a contact form on the website.
Optional State Supplementation
Federal SSI recipients may qualify to receive an additional monthly supplement through the Michigan Department of Human Services’ OSS benefit. Depending on the recipient’s marital status and living situation, the benefit can range between $14 and $685 per month, and it’s added directly to the recipient’s federal payment.
To learn more or to apply for the OSS benefit, area residents can contact Macomb County’s Social Security Administration office in Sterling Heights at (800) 772-1213.
VA Aid and Attendance
Veterans aged 65 and older with a VA pension may be eligible for the federal Aid and Attendance program, which provides funds intended to offset the costs of assisted living. To qualify, veterans must meet at least one of the following requirements:
A detailed physician’s report is required when applying.
Surviving spouses may also qualify for this assistance. Veterans enrolled in the VA Housebound program or those receiving a VA disability pension are not eligible to receive Aid and Attendance funds.
Income limits also apply, but the VA has a complex means of determining countable income, so interested individuals should seek guidance from their local vet center or benefits office. For more information or to apply, veterans should call the Detroit Regional Benefit Office at (800) 827-1000.
