Some Resources To Get Started
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.
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.
