Are you concerned about issues of importance to seniors in Michigan? Then, you will want to make plans to attend Older Michiganians Day (OMD) on Wednesday, May 16 in Lansing.
Thousands of seniors from all over Michigan and more than 180 advocates representing the six counties (Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, and Washtenaw) that AAA 1-B serves will be there. The theme of this year’s event is “Engage at Every Age.”
There are four main areas that will be the focus of the day:
You can also join the rally on the East Lawn of the Capitol Building, hear keynote speakers, and meet with your legislators. You might also check out how senior advocates want to continue to back policies that support family caregivers, create affordable housing and transportation options, develop a Michigan Dementia Plan, expand Telehealth benefits, and grow Age Friendly Communities in our state.
There’s no need to wait till next year—join everyone at Older Michiganians Day. This event takes place annually and is supported by AAA 1-B, AARP Michigan, the Alzheimer’s Association, Senior Volunteer Programs of Michigan, Michigan Association of Nutrition and Aging Services Programs, Michigan Directors of Services to the Aging, Michigan Senior Advocates Council and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
