We are an assisted living, independent living, intermediate care, and memory care community that always puts our residents’ comfort and safety first. Visit our assisted living facility in Fenton, Michigan to see what your loved one’s transition into retirement years could look like!
Meet the Residents

In her spare time, she would be at St Mary’s in Swartz Creek, greeting people at the back of church or working funeral dinners.

Gary attended Wayne State and graduated with a radio, TV, and film degree. He was able to use his degree all over the world. His favorite place to photograph was Germany where he learned to speak the language. Gary also served in the Army from 1962-1965.
