Introducing Abbey Park at Mill River: Luxurious and Affordable Retirement Living Without Compromise

New Hudson, MI: 

Lyon Township’s new senior living community is putting out the welcome mat. After 18 months of construction, Abbey Park at Mill River will welcome their first residents in mid-December.

Located across from Coyote Golf Course off Milford Road, the 150-unit rental community will provide an address of distinction for area seniors. Fireplaces, water fountains and elegant lighting grace the spacious lobby and welcome visitors into the Abbey Park experience. Within the 195,000 square-foot facility, residents will enjoy a broad range of amenities: a coffee shop, ice cream parlor, grand dining hall, chapel, theater, library, media center, hair salon and fitness center.

Residents can choose from nine floor plans with one or two bedrooms, with or without a den, and many offer walk-in-closet options. All apartment rental fees include a daily continental breakfast, luncheon in the grand dining hall, daily housekeeping, weekly maid service, scheduled chauffeured transportation, a complete schedule of organized events and activities, round-the-clock staffing and a state-of-the-art medical alert system. A full-facility generator, two elevators and electronic key entry offer additional reassurance. Heat, water, electricity and basic cable are included, and the community is also pet-friendly.

A variety of personal care options are provided onsite by a Medicare-certified provider. Medical and personal care plans offer an alternative to traditional assisted living options, allowing residents to tailor care packages to their specific needs. The result: a customized retirement lifestyle that is affordable and easily adaptive to life’s changes and challenges.

“Every option is available here at Abbey Park,” stated Administrator Tamra Ward. “From dawn ’til dusk, we offer our residents a variety of options and services. Each one of our employees is trained to serve our residents with care and consideration — as we ourselves would like to be treated,” she stressed. A full-time Activity Director will offer a menu of field trips and activities ranging from trips to the theater, restaurants, local landmarks and festivals, shopping malls and regular trips to the market. Within the community there will be exercise classes, current event and book discussion groups, craft and sewing projects, card games such as bridge, poker and Euchre, weekly live entertainment, ice-cream socials and happy hour, bingo, bunco in addition to holiday parties and celebrations.

Independently owned by Oakland County residents Joe Norber, Ed Rosenbaum and Dr. Ben Stein, the new Lyon Township community is the second in the Abbey Park family. Abbey Park at Genesys, located in Grand Blanc, has been in operation for more than nine years and the partners have over 30 years experience serving the seniors in the Detroit metro area. Community policies for both facilities are family-centered — there’s no entry fee required, and no long-term lease.

Careful consideration was given to programs and services offered at the new facility. “As we age, our daily needs change,” stated co-owner Dr. Stein. “We are proud to offer a community that adapts to these changes in our lives and is also affordable during these challenging economic times. Abbey Park at Mill River offers freedom — a chance to be free from household maintenance and routine. We also offer security — not just for our residents but for their families and loved ones, too.”

Tours are available during regular office hours, 9:00 am to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Advance reservations for tours are encouraged.
