Memory Care & Assisted Living FAQs

We would love to provide a tour for you and any other family members or your loved one. Give us a call at (734) 849-4220 to schedule a time that is convenient for you. After the tour, if you are interested in moving forward, our Recreational Therapist will provide an assessment for your family member to get to know them and see which of our three homes they would enjoy living in the most.

Memory Lane has three residences each with six private bedrooms. If all of the bedrooms are occupied, we are happy to add your loved one to a waiting list. Contact us today for a tour and to be placed on the waiting list!

Yes, we want Memory Lane to be the best place that your loved one lives and remove any stresses associated with moving. Memory Lane is equipped for residents at and until the end of their lives, where their new family and friends will always be with them.

Our homes and grounds are monitored 24/7 by a video security system and our homes are fully alarmed for utmost safety. And because our staff-to-patient ratio is more than double what you’ll get at most other homes, someone will always be there to respond and ensure that residents are safe. Many facilities have a ratio of 1:10 during the day and up to 1:24 at night. Our ratio is 1 staff member for every 3 patients during the day and 1 for every 6 at night.

Our Memory Lane homes are beautiful 6-bedroom homes in a peaceful Ypsilanti neighborhood. Each house is not just “home-like”—it is actually a home. We have a large deck on the back of the houses where residents can enjoy the warmer months and spend time together doing activities that add purpose and fulfillment to every life. Come see it for yourself to experience the feeling of home for yourself!

Families are welcome and encouraged to visit from 10:00am to 5:30pm. We respect our residents’ need for a consistent daily routine. Early mornings and late evenings are reserved for consistent wake and bedtime routines and scheduled hygiene needs with our caregivers. Visiting hours are limited in the interest of controlling overstimulation at critical points in the daily routine and keeping life safe, predictable, and consistent for our residents.

Every day we’ll be engaged in activities that make life feel purposeful. This includes daily exercise, social activities, craft projects, cooking and light cleaning (even if it’s just cracking an egg or dusting a shelf), eating meals together, celebrating holidays, and other fun activities.

Outside visit transportation must be arranged by the resident’s family or guardian. You can pick your loved one up for a visit or hire a medical transportation service. We’re happy to help get them in and out of a vehicle! We do, however, have physician services that visit our home regularly, as well as visiting podiatrists; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; hospice services; and a hairdresser to meet all of their needs in-house if you choose to use them.

You are welcome to take your loved one home or out to activities and events. We do request notification at least 2 days prior for appropriate preparation and planning to make sure your loved one is ready to leave the home. There may be situations of advanced disease where we would recommend against your loved one leaving the home other than for healthcare appointments.
