Gardenview, Calumet MI
At the Gardenview assisted living community in Calumet, MI, people enjoy a fun and engaging environment while they receive long-term care. Each person’s retirement journey is different, and the Gardenview staff encourage everyone to explore their individuality, meet friends, and stay active as members of the community.
Gardenview staff work with each resident one-on-one to best understand their care needs. They create individualized care plans for each person, tailored to the person’s capabilities and preferences. Residents receive as much or as little care as they need, depending on their health conditions and self-sufficiency. For example, one person may get help dressing and bathing, while another may request assistance as needed. The community’s around-the-clock staff make requesting help easy, giving residents the peace of mind that help is only a button press away whenever they need it.
Each person’s individualized care plan is different, and no two people receive the exact same services. Most care plans include one or more of the following:
- Personal care/assistance with daily activities
- Medication management
- Laundry and linen services
- Transportation to and from medical appointments and leisure activities

Unlike one or two-bedroom apartments, studio units do not have private bedrooms - instead, the bedroom is combined with the living room for one open, easy-to-navigate living and sleeping area. Residents can live alone, with their spouse, or with a roommate, and the community allows one small, well-behaved pet in each apartment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if Gardenview is right for me?
Finding the right assisted living community is crucial to a happy retirement. It is important for older adults to find a residence that offers the services they need, properly-sized floor plans, and activities they want to participate in. Whether or not Gardenview fits these criteria depends on a person’s level of care and their personal preferences.
Unlike a nursing home, Gardenview does not offer skilled nursing care. They are not equipped to administer skilled nursing care and their services are not an alternative to medical attention for people with chronic illness or injury. To find out if Gardenview may be a suitable choice for senior care, prospective residents can ask themselves the following questions about their health conditions and care needs:
- Are they permanently confined to their bed?
- Do they need ongoing medical attention?
- Do they need rehabilitation?
- Do they have memory loss, Alzheimer's or dementia?
If a person is non-ambulatory or they need ongoing help from a medical professional, Gardenview may not be the best choice for their care. The senior living community is not licensed to provide ongoing medical attention and may not be able to provide for people who need such services.
However, thanks to the community’s unique In the Moment memory care program, people living with Alzheimer's and dementia are welcome as residents. Gardenview’s memory care community is specially designed for people with memory loss, Alzheimer’s, and dementia creating an ideal living environment for them to thrive.
