We are the go-to agency with questions about aging and elder care services – meals, in-home care, transportation, legal assistance, respite, caregiver resources, housing, and much more. Often, people don’t know exactly what they need; they just know they need some assistance.
As an Area Agency on Aging we serve as the gateway to local aging resources, planning efforts and services to help older adults remain independent, in their own homes and communities. Our vision is lifelong dignity and independence for older adults, their families and caregivers in Muskegon, Oceana and Ottawa counties.
Call one of our trained Options Counselors: (231) 733-3585 or 1-800-442-0054; Oceana County residents can call (231) 559-0331, or email us: [email protected]
We will listen to your unique life situation, present options, and help guide you to information and resources. We can help with eligibility for government supported programs, application processes, options for long-term care services, and we can serve as a neutral source for aging-related information.
We will guide you on how to best pair your own personal resources with community resources for long-term care needs. We can provide comprehensive assessments and services for the frail elderly at high risk of entering a skilled care facility, and we can help those moving from a nursing facility back into a home environment.
Our Supports Coordinators can help arrange services such as: adult day care, personal hygiene care, home chore services, home-delivered meals, respite care, medication management, personal emergency response systems, and more.
