Our mission guides our work, to serve and advocate for older adults, adults with disabilities and caregivers by supporting their independence, dignity, and quality of life.

We are the place to turn to when needing assistance with complex issues. We help people access the services and programs they need to remain living in their own home or with a caregiver for as long as possible.

At AAANM, we are devoted to attracting and retaining a diverse staff that is representative of our community and the clients we serve. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a work environment that is inclusive, equitable and welcoming to all.

How We Help

As an Area Agency on Aging, we operate within the framework of the Federal Older Americans Act and the State’s Older Michiganians Act.

The Board oversees the general management and control of the affairs of AAANM, particularly policy-making functions, and assurance of sound management.

Funding

Funding for these services comes primarily from the Older Americans Act (federal), the Older Michiganians Act (state), Medicaid and local county governments.
