Carefree Living in a Quiet Suburban Setting at Elmcroft of Downriver

Our ranch-style senior living home is a welcome addition to the friendly Brownstown community, with modern facilities built in 2000, and a pleasant home-style atmosphere. A beautiful secluded courtyard; elegant, inviting common spaces; and a full range of amenities make Elmcroft of Downriver the perfect home for any stage of retirement living.  We are the only licensed community in the Downriver area that provides safe and secure memory care for residents living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores.


We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Private or shared apartment options are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peace and quiet, our gardens, courtyards and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.


What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Downriver is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. Our dedicated memory care neighborhood offers the same personal care support, with the added focus on the special needs of adults with senior dementia. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.


Respectful, Compassionate Care

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. From tenured management and specially trained caregivers, to professional support personnel, the people who work here really care. Our 24-hour resident care staff, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.


When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our personal care staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like fitness classes, art classes, educational classes, games and trivia, field trips, gardening, wine tastings, on-site musical entertainment and spiritual services.
