Assisted living in Michigan is regarded as Home for the Aged and Adult Foster Care. The licensing authority is the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. An HFA (home for the aged) in Michigan is a home that provides personal care for seniors that are over 60. An AFC (adult foster care) will be there to provide care for anyone in need. There are separate regulations for both. We will explore the HFA and what that provides first.

An HFA or Home for the Aged, which in this state of Michigan is regarded as Assisted Living, will provide care and close 24-hour supervision of the adult over the age of 60. They will be provided a room and board and can house up to 21 persons in one assisted living facility. It may not be a transient setting nor can the residents be transient people. This means the senior care facility may not be a hotel, a hospital, a nursing home, nor a medical facility owned by the county.

Room Requirements for an Assisted Living Facility in Michigan

The physical structure requirements for assisted living facilities, referred to HFA’ are as follows. Single occupancy rooms must have an 80 square foot floor space apart from bathrooms, closets, alcoves of any other room other than living room space. If the Michigan assisted living facility is new construction, then 100 square feet is required. New construction means anything built after November 1969. There are a number of bed restriction to 4 in each bedroom.

Each assisted living facility in the state of Michigan must have one full bath for every 8 beds for each floor. There has to be a full bathtub or shower on each floor that is able to accommodate up to 15 residents. Separate staff bathrooms are also required for each floor.

Statewide, Michigan assisted living cost is under the national average, but not by much, at $3,850 per month. The rates swing from $2,225 to $4,500 depending on the location of the facility as well as the types of amenities and services offered, such as dementia care. Ann Arbor is the highest priced for assisted living in Michigan at $5,050 monthly. Fortunately, there is hope for those having a challenge to pay for assisted living in Michigan. There is a waiver called the Home Links Program. This program is Assisted Living Support. This takes care of assisted living facilities, adult daycare, adult foster care and those that live at home and need personal care by a caregiver.

For those that still need further payment supplementation, there are ways to do so creatively and efficiently, it just takes a bit of planning and timing. Do you have an insurance policy that you could cash out to help pay for senior living in Michigan? Maybe a home that you could rent out or a reverse mortgage that you could cash out the equity in to help you pay for Michigan assisted living? Were you a veteran or dependent on a veteran? What about public service? Were you a police officer or firefighter? These are the very important questions to ask yourself or the senior that is being cared for to help offset the high costs of assisted living in the state of Michigan.
