Southfield, MI (June 1, 2018) — The Area Agency on Aging 1-B (AAA 1-B) is holding a public forum in order to get feedback on its plan to add two new services for older adults in the six-county region of southeast Michigan that it serves, which includes Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties. The forum is scheduled for Tuesday, June 19, from 2:30 -3:30 p.m. at the AAA 1-B’s Southfield office, located at 29100 Northwestern Highway, Suite 400.
The agency plans to add nutrition education/counseling services—offered both in an individual and group setting—to help older adults understand and set nutrition goals to help prevent disease and live a healthier lifestyle. The agency also plans to expand case coordination services offered through its Community Living Program. This program helps older adults remain living independently by offering consultation on long-term care options, the development and monitoring of supports plans, and communications with appropriate community agencies to arrange services.
Both of these services are planned for fiscal year 2019—which runs from October 1, 2018 through September 30, 2019—and would be delivered using state and federal funding allocated to serve seniors in the AAA 1-B’s six-county region.
The agency is inviting seniors, family members who are caring for older adults, senior advocates, senior care professionals and any other interested members of the public to attend the public forum scheduled for June 19. For more information on the forum, contact Ann Langford, AAA 1-B chief program officer, at (248) 262- 9942 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
