The Boll House

Services for Older Citizens’ home began its life in the late 1920’s as a dormitory for nurses at Cottage Hospital. It was originally known  as the Newberry House, recognizing Helen Newberry who donation funded the acquisition and construction. 

In 2012, Henry Ford Medical Center – Cottage agreed to donate the use of the property to Services for Older Citizens for a nominal sum. Services for Older Citizens then embarked on an extensive reconstruction project, made possible by generous donations from hundreds of community residents, turning the former dormitory into a state-of-the-art center for senior activities and community events. In June 2013, Services for Older Citizens moved into the newly named John A. and Marlene L. Boll House.
