A Helping Hand in Reach for Michigan Seniors
Michigan seniors across the state have friends they can turn to for support — via the Internet or by phone.
Like a good friend who can put you in touch with the resources you need, the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging provides leadership, advocacy, information and support services to help Michigan’s aging residents live better and longer.
Visit the MOSA website to find a wealth of information online or to print out a brochure in English, Spanish or Arabic. Or call MOSA’s Lansing headquarters at 517-373-8230.
MOSA contracts with 16 Area Agencies on Aging and more than 1,000 service providers in specified geographic regions of the state to facilitate access to services we all may need as we age.
Information topics, resources and programs funded by MOSA include:
- Caregiver services programs
- Community-based services
- Elder abuse prevention
- In-home services programs
- Legal assistance program
- Medicare assistance program
- Nutrition and home-delivered meals programs
You can contact your local Area Agency on Aging for information on services available in your area. AAA can help you find caregiving services, home delivered meals and a wide range of other support services.
