Senior Care Services in West Michigan

Many people are afraid of losing their independence as they age, and do not want to move into a nursing home. At Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan (AAAWM), we believe that every senior should be able to remain happy, healthy, and at home. Our comprehensive services aim to provide older persons and persons with disabilities the independence and dignity they strive for while residing in an environment that is comfortable to them.

Who We Are and What We Do

Established in April of 1974, the AAAWM has helped countless adults live more productive lives by providing the tools and services needed to maintain independence. We are a non-profit organization that provides aging services, as well as information and assistance.

We plan, develop, oversee, and advocate for in-home senior care services to older adults, especially those with social and economic needs. Collaboration between nurses and social workers results in valuable in-home care plans that aim to keep seniors in their homes as they age. All services are provided with funding from local, state, and federal sources.

Aging Services and Programs

Our extensive range of senior care services and programs make it possible for many seniors to stay at home during their golden years. Our in-home care programs include in-home assessments to determine whether an individual qualifies for these programs.

We also assist individuals and families to identify and use community resources to promote independence. Our Healthy Aging Programs are open to adults ages 60 and over and promote health education and physical activity, which increases focus on important matters, such as diabetes, balance, and enhanced fitness.

Our MI Choice Medicaid Waiver Program involves a partnership with the Care Management Team to develop care-centered plans for individuals on an as-needed basis. Individuals in need of long-term services may be eligible to receive funding for in-home care services within their Medicaid funding program.
