The Springs Philosophy

The Springs is a catalyst for intentional aging.
Adults who are 55 and older in the Frankenmuth and Great Lakes Bay region will experience a first for the area. The Springs brings together four key elements identified by leaders in the aging service field as contributing to proactive and healthy aging.

Age-Friendly Home Design

Assuring everything possible is done in the design and construction of the home to provide a supportive environment if health and ability changes should enter one’s life is the first step. These homes will be designed to support aging as needs may change over time. Some of these elements include “zero threshold” (no steps into the home), pocket/slider doors on bathrooms and bedrooms, and choices in appliances and cabinetry.

A la Carte Services

The service and lifestyle needs of active older adults and those with some health challenges can vary significantly. To accommodate the individual needs of each person, The Springs provides customized concierge-like services and amenities. This includes everything from wellness and health programming provided in The Springs Clubhouse, to turnkey services, pet care, in-home help and healthcare as needed.

Technology-Supported Lifestyle

From social media to stay in touch with loved ones near and far, to wellness monitoring technology, The Springs will help older adults access what they need, when they need it. And it’s all based on their personal needs and goals. Technology in the aging services space is growing exponentially, and The Springs relationship with Wellspring Lutheran Services will provide a vital link to this edge-of-the-art way to age.

Home Affordability

At any age, affordability varies from person to person, couple to couple and family to family. That’s why the offerings of condominium homes at The Springs will provide an array of pricing, with a focus on what is considered to be the modest middle-income older adult household.
We know when age-friendly home design, technology, services and affordability all come together, older adults can age proactively with better outcomes. That’s why The Springs is right for people who have lived their lives with planning and intentionality – and intend to age the same way.
