Genesee Gardens retirement community is set on a bright and cheery senior living campus in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Nestled on a sprawling lawn with paved paths and trees, you’ll enjoy walking the campus with neighbors and pets or taking in sunsets from your balcony.
Our Flint Township independent living community is central to shopping, dining, attractions, and a number of healthcare providers, including McLaren Flint Medical Center. Browse the shops at Genesee Valley Center. Ride the train at Crossroads Village & Huckleberry Railroad. Explore the Longway Planetarium, Sloan Museum, and Buick Automotive Gallery. The grandkids will love Flint Children’s Museum. When you’re ready for a night on the town, restaurants and movie theaters are under 3 miles away.
Genesee Gardens is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2019 Great Place to Work certification, and the 2018 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.
