It’s one of the most difficult decision someone faces in their life.

When aging mom and dad can no longer live in their own home, how do you find the ideal alternative?

There’s a one-of-a-kind partnership in Grosse Pointe Farms bringing senior living and health care under the same roof.

Henry Ford Hospital and American House are working together to provide an assisted living center that also provides on-demand health services when needed.

The facility, which will open in 2015, will have floors for both independent seniors and those who need help with daily activities. There will also be a special emphasis on residents who are dealing with memory loss.

And whether you are considering the new American House arrangement, or other providers, where do you get reliable information on quality of care?

A Place for Mom helps 200,000 families annually with this difficult decision.  You can reach them at
