Rivertown Neighborhood

Project Summary:

In 2014, the PVM Foundation received a $5 Million grant from the Edward N. and Della L. Thome Memorial Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee to name and complete the expansion of the Rivertown Neighborhood.

The Edward N. and Della L. Thome Rivertown Neighborhood, An Innovative Senior Community, is drawing attention both nationally and internationally as it leads the way to the future of housing and services for older adults. A partnership of PVM, United Methodist Retirement Communities (UMRC) and Henry Ford Health System’s (HFHS) PACE Southeast Michigan (formerly Center for Independence), The Thome Rivertown Neighborhood will provide Detroit seniors a full array of affordable health care, service, and housing options on one campus.

Phase I of the project is complete and in Process for Phase II :

  • 50-unit low-income, HUD 202, senior independent living apartments opened in Fall 2014;
  • The Weinberg Green Houses®, the first in Detroit, offering a home-like setting with services for seniors requiring 24-hour care and supervision including the medical and clinical services needed to live lives of quality and dignity;
  • A rooftop garden providing an urban oasis for residents and their family and visitors, staff and the neighboring community; and
  • A community center/café as a space for people of all ages to gather for friendship and conversation as well as participate in programs to nurture body, mind and spirit.

Construction has been underway on the last three components since Summer 2015.

Just steps from Detroit’s RiverWalk, The Thome Rivertown Neighborhood opened Phase I early 2013. Residents are living in its 80 Affordable Assisted Living (AAL) apartments, the first alternative to nursing home care offered in Detroit through the PVM’s partnership with UMRC, and seniors are participating in the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), which will serve 300 local seniors in its two adult day centers and memory-support unit. This location is the second PACE program offered through PVM’s collaboration with HFHS.

Thank you for being a part of Detroit’s exciting future and PVM’s continuing innovation. Your generosity will make impact seniors now and in years to come!
