About Our Independent Living Facilities

Our Independent Living facility consists of private rooms for individuals or couples with locks for privacy and security. Residents can have their cars with them and leave the facility as they wish, or enjoy our common area where they can relax with friends or family. We also offer on-site laundry and salon services. If you or your loved one are capable of handling their own affairs, including taking out their own trash and cleaning up from spills or messes, this is a great community. Byron Center Manor is located 20 minutes from Georgetown Township and 15 minutes from Wayland.

Is Independent Living Right for Me?

Independent living offers the privacy and independence of living “alone” but with the safety and peace of mind offered by our trained staff. If you or your loved one are capable of performing normal tasks and handling your day-to-day living affairs, independent living is a great choice. You can maintain the freedom you cherish while still benefiting from a like-minded community and the many opportunities available. And, should you or your loved one require assistance, our friendly and professional team is available 24/7.
