The studio apartments are affordable and convenient, creating a perfect environment for people who want to downsize during their retirement. Studios offer one large living area that doubles as a sleeping space instead of a private bedroom. One-bedroom apartments are larger and offer greater privacy, but may cost more per month than studio floor plans.
Each unit is pet friendly for one small animal, according to the community’s guidelines. Leaving a pet to move to assisted living can be challenging and Curry House encourages their residents to have animal companionship. They assess each pet individually, but most well-behaved animals within the size requirements are accepted.

Q: How do I know if Curry House is right for me?
Each person is different and their care needs are unique to them. Some people live their entire retirements receiving in-home care while others more to assisted living and independent living communities to receive around-the-clock care.
Curry House is an outstanding choice for people who need mild to moderate personal care. They made need help with their activities of daily living, medication management, or housekeeping to make their retirement as easy and relaxing as possible. However, there are a few questions people can ask themselves to learn if Curry House is the right choice for them:
Do they need ongoing medical attention?
Are they ambulatory?
Do they need rehabilitation
Do they have memory impairments, Alzheimer’s or dementia?
Like many other assisted living facilities and independent living communities in Michigan, Curry House is not licensed to provide skilled nursing care on site. As a senior living community, Curry House is not permitted to offer services typical of a medical facility.
The same principle applies to non-ambulatory individuals. Curry House is not equipped to help people who are permanently confined to their beds and they may not admit applicants who are. Nursing homes may be more suitable for people who need ongoing medical attention or who are non-ambulatory.
However, this does not exclude people with living Alzheimer’s or dementia from Curry House. The residence offers a special memory care community specifically for people managing memory impairments, creating an ideal environment for them to flourish. If a person’s Alzheimer’s disease can be managed by non-medical dementia care, Curry House’s memory care program may be an exceptional option for them to retire comfortably.
