In the immortal words of George Burns, “You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.”

You’re definitely not ready for a “retirement home” or an “old folks’ home”! You’re still the same fun loving person you were in your earlier years. Sure, the age numbers are changing, but your attitudes haven’t changed and you still enjoy many of the things you’ve always enjoyed. You’re young at heart.  Maintaining your independence and continuing your active lifestyle is important to you, but it’s time to start a new chapter. Those are the things we celebrate at The Rivers Grosse Pointe!

The Rivers Grosse Pointe is Reinventing Retirement!

The Rivers Grosse Pointe is a vibrant, active senior living community, where members enjoy resort-style living similar to that of a luxury hotel or cruise ship. Spacious, well-appointed studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom independent living apartments feature:

  • illivingroomGracious living/dining areas
  • Gourmet kitchens with granite counter-tops, stainless steel sinks with disposals, refrigerators, built-in dishwashers, and self-cleaning electric ovens with ranges
  • In-home washers and dryers
  • Luxurious ceramic tile bathrooms with walk-in showers
  • Abundant closet space

An all-inclusive monthly service fee also includes utilities, telephone service, basic Direct TV, and housekeeping.

Cooking is optional. With your own in-apartment kitchen, you can still cook your own meals (if you’re so inclined), bake cookies with your grandkids, or entertain friends and family – or not! Each month, you will receive a dining allowance to purchase meals at one of The Rivers’ eateries.

At some point, if you find that you need additional assistance with the tasks of daily living, The Rivers’ team will help you transition to an Assisted Living suite.
