Nothing takes a higher priority at Balfour than treating every resident with the deference, dignity, and attention he or she deserves. We emphasize strengths, abilities and keeping things positive. It is especially important when providing memory and Alzheimer’s care. We take great pride in the treatment for all of our residents to ensure that when they join our memory care community in Ann Arbor, they can live with dignity and the care they deserve.
Apartment homes starting at $7,300 per month.
The comforts of home with the amenities of a fine resort
It is all about our commitment to the individual – treating each resident with the deference, dignity and attention he or she deserves. We emphasize the strengths and abilities of our residents, keeping things positive. Nothing takes a higher priority at Balfour than recruiting and retaining experienced staff. Intensive training for all staff along with monthly in-service programs creates an environment of learning and interest. Our care partners are trained in validation approaches, which encourage interaction with residents in the most effective, caring way possible.
Equally important is strong communication between our care partners and the families of our residents. Our regular care meetings and educational and family council gatherings create a collaborative caring environment for residents and families.
We take great pride in creating an atmosphere that brings real joy and a sense of purpose. Residents are encouraged to make new friends and feel a part of a community at large—a vibrant community that’s geared to their unique needs.

Nurturing the Spirit
Our goal is to nurture the spirit of our residents. Our staff is skilled in combining stimulation and relaxation with a healthy dose of ordinary daily activities such as folding linens, baking cookies and gardening.
We offer activities that help stimulate long-term memories and increase enjoyment of the moment, including pet therapy, music therapy, massage, and aromatherapy. Reminiscing and sensory activities draw on our residents’ strengths, allowing them to reflect, engage, and talk about themselves.
Our care partners meet our residents where they are—in their world and in their time. Balfour’s spirit of activity-filled days and nights, beautiful surroundings, and a collaborative, family-oriented community is a vision for a new generation of Memory Care/Alzheimer’s care-giving.
Daily Scheduled Events & Activities
A full calendar every day of the month, because life should be lived to the fullest
Like all Balfour communities, we offer a full Life Enrichment program that is essential for physical and mental well being. These programs are specially designed for people who need advanced memory care with an emphasis on sensory stimulation.
On any given day you’ll find people enjoying over a dozen different programs—over 200 every month. Some are quiet, peaceful forms of self expression like outdoor gardening and painting in our private, secure inner courtyard. While others are more stimulating and social like sing-a-longs and games.
In order to protect the health of our residents and to align with state health recommendations, we have needed to curtail many of our group activities. We are still offering wellness activities but on a more personalized yet socially distant basis. Once the threat of COVID-19 has passed we will add back our link to Life Enrichment daily activities.
