Enjoy all that retirement has to offer in the palm of Michigan's cozy mitten. This independent senior living community is located in Wyoming, MI, a vibrant community surrounded by a diverse neighborhood just 10 miles south of downtown Grand Rapids. Next to a beautifully wooded area and across the street from two pharmacies, several fast food restaurants and a convenience store, Aurora Pond is less than a mile from healthcare at Metro Health Hospital.
When you want to have a city adventure, Grand Rapids is full of wonderful opportunities. Spend a day at GRAM, the city’s art museum. Shop for bargains at the Tanger Outlet Mall. Or stroll through Meijer Gardens, one of the nation's premier horticultural display gardens. There’s so much to discover, just waiting for you at Aurora Pond.
Aurora Pond is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2020 Caring.com Stars award, and the 2019 Great Place to Work certification.

Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.
That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.
What are your interests?
Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site
The convenience of Aurora Pond's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.
Aurora Pond's beautician, Jan, knows everyone in the community and even helps with coffee pours and on holidays. Her talents are well-known and some previous residents still get their hair styled by Jan. In addition to beauty services, monthly massages are available.
Fitness Right at Home
Aurora Pond residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.
Our fitness calendar changes each month per residents' requests. Some of our staples include our dog walking club, chair-yoga, cardio-drumming, and Arthur Murray dance classes to prepare for the next big party. Residents also love "pondercise"every morning.
Let Us Serve You
Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Aurora Pond’s dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.
All meals are made from scratch and our menu changes daily. Aurora Pond's chef hosts a bi-monthly roundtable and loves to incorporate your family recipes into meals.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the Wyoming area and Aurora Pond makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
Complimentary transportation provides you easy access to a variety of activities and attractions, including a monthly “Lunch Bunch” outing to local restaurants. Residents also enjoy trips to Gun Lake Casino, Monelli’s restaurant, Rivertown Mall, Tanger Mall, breweries, and shopping centers.
Life is Never Boring
Aurora Pond’s comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
Plant vegetables, fruit, and herbs in our raised garden beds. Root on your favorite team in our newly remodeled community theatre or attend the Sunday and Monday matinees. You'll love our weekly popup events, with activities such as Christmas cookie decorating.
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Aurora Pond. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
Residents love "Critter Barn" and animal playdates in warm weather months. We sometimes host dog parties and extend the invitation to nearby animal shelters. Turkeys, deer and a fox that hang out by the cottages are considered our "community pets."
Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi
Aurora Pond is fully equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected. You can use a community desktop in the computer room to stay up-to-date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi in common areas throughout.
Attend our Tech Tuesdays to stay updated on technology and ask questions about your devices. Stream shows or videos of grandkids on our WiFi-connected TVs around the community, or enjoy a Wii game. Maintain your records online through your personal computer or smartphone. Use the copiers to print records, pictures, or letters. There are several printers available as well.
Travel and Adventure is Always Available
The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.
We host quite a few guest stays throughout the year, whether it's family or residents from different states. You'll love our monthly travel parties, where you'll "travel" to a different country each month with treats and goodies from the featured destination.
Lend a Helping Hand
Many residents find fulfillment in donating their time to a cause close to their hearts. There are volunteer activities on the calendar, so you’ll be sure to find an option that suits your interests.
Aurora Pond offers a resident ambassador program. For example, one of our ambassadors brings in women to help build boxes for the Red Box Project. We also host the Wyoming City Council summer meeting, and support Alzheimer’s research, Toys for Tots, and Meals on Wheels. Outside volunteers include Seniors Helping Seniors, Visiting Angels, and teenagers who help with meals and events.
Join us for a Complimentary Meal
At Holiday Retirement, we love our food and know you will too. We invite you and a guest to join us for a flavorful meal and the opportunity to see first-hand if independent retirement living is right for you.
