Some Resources To Get Started
Michigan’s senior population faces increasingly complex decisions related to health care and financial matters. In response, the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division has developed informational resources including guides, fact sheets, and how-to’s in order to assist in making complex decisions. To assist consumers, our office offers free educational programming which consists of 40 – 45 minute live presentations across Michigan, highlighting specific topics for consumers and caregivers. We look forward to working together to keep Michigan seniors informed and safe. Thank you for your interest in the Senior Brigade program.
