Page Reviewed / Updated – September 6, 2023

Suburban Sterling Heights affords a bounty of natural beauty, ample shopping and convenient access to advanced health care and hospitals. Its robust senior population accounts for nearly 18% of 132,567 residents who are drawn to its safe neighborhoods, lower than average healthcare costs and proximity to metro Detroit. The Michigan Dementia Coalition is working to make the state more dementia-friendly, implementing initiatives to help support senior residents. For those with dementia and Alzheimer’s, The Henry Ford organization partners with the Michigan Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to provide Community Connect programs with culturally enriching social opportunities.

Due to the specialized nature of memory care, the additional training required for staffing and added security measures, the cost of memory care is approximately 25% higher than basic assisted living. In Sterling Heights, the cost of dementia care is $5,269 per month, which is less than the state median of $5,313 and the national average of $5,625.
