The article "Seniors may get local assisted living," printed in the Grosse Pointe News April 25 issue, about the proposed assisted living facility for senior citizens in Grosse Pointe Woods, sounds like a very good idea that is long overdue.
The description of the building and its setting seems to be unoffensive and fit well into the neighborhood.
I would be very disappointed if the concerns of a few of the nearby residents were to stop the plans of Sunrise, which is reported to have many of these facilities around the country.
The community badly needs places such as this to serve its aging population and permit them to stay in their home town.
Grosse Pointe Woods will also gain a tax-paying facility on unused land.
