How does Hillside Empower Resident Autonomy?

independent living Ann Arbor


 1.     Tailored care: No one-size fits all here! We get to know you and your needs and create a plan that provides the right amount of help.

2.     Choice is king (or queen): Want to pick out your activities? Done. Want a salad for dinner? Got it! Empowerment is the name of the game.

3.     Tech to the rescue: Gadgets like voice assistants and other smart phone features lend a hand with everyday tasks, keeping you independent as long as possible.

4.     Designed for you: Imagine wider hallways, grab bars in the bathroom, and lighting you can adjust. These smart design features make it easier to get around safely and do things on your own.

5.     Talk it out: Open communication is key. Caregivers who listen and treat you with respect make all the difference. It's a team effort, after all!


Assisted living can be a fantastic way to keep your independence and enjoy a vibrant life. Look for a place that puts residents first and you might surprise yourself with how much you thrive!
