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.
