Frequently Asked Questions


How do I know if a retirement community is for me?

If you answer “Yes” to any of the following, Parkside of Livonia could be the perfect place for you.

  • Would you benefit from more social interaction with other mature adults?

  • Would you benefit from regular exercise in a social environment?

  • Would you enjoy participating in outings, crafts, cards, Veteran's Club, or Red Hats Club?

  • Would you benefit from the convenience not having to worry about the maintenance and stress that comes with home ownership?

What is Independent Living?

Independent Living is for people 55 and up who wish to live independently while ben­efiting from the advantages of an enhanced social, cultural and recreational lifestyle. Independent Living residents are free from the burden of home-maintenance concerns and have more time to enjoy the things they love.

Is this Assisted Living?

Parkside of Livonia is not an Assisted Living community; we are an active, vibrant, Independent Living community. If you would like the option to live an even more care-free lifestyle, we offer optional, customized, enhanced personal services in addition to our standard accommodations. These optional enhanced services are offered à la carte, meaning you only pay for the services you choose to enjoy, and if you choose no extra services, you pay nothing extra.

How will I know if I will fit in and be happy?

Parkside of Livonia’s resident-first approach assures that all new residents feel welcome, quickly learn their way around and meet new neighbors right away. The social, friendly environment in our community encourages residents to make new friends and live full, happy lives. You are welcome to visit Parkside of Livonia and attend one of our spectacular community events or daily activities at any time!

What if I find that I am not happy?

If within your first 60 days living with us you find that you are not happy for any reason, we will cancel the rest of your lease with no penalty. That’s how sure we are you’ll love it here with us. Speak to a consultant for details.

Are transportation services available on the property?

Absolutely! Our community bus allows us to provide transportation into town on a regular basis, so you can enjoy shopping, recreational activities, restaurants, social outings and more.

Do I have to give up my dog?

No way! We welcome most cats and dogs with some breed restrictions. We can’t wait to meet your four-legged friend.

Why is the rent so low?
