The Area Plan serves as a guide for the development and funding of aging services. Services include but are not limited to, information and referral, homemaking, personal care, respite care, family caregiver support, elder abuse prevention, legal assistance, long term care ombudsman, congregate and home delivered meals, adult day care, and transportation.
AAANM promotes the development of a comprehensive, coordinated, and cost-effective system of home and community-based services. We strive to ensure that services reflect the needs and preferences of older adults and their caregivers.
The Area Plan is required by the Older Americans Act and Older Michiganians Act. Directions for plan are set by the Administration on Community Living Services Bureau, formerly Aging and Adult Services Agency (AASA). The Area Plan describes how AAANM will administer funds for services, build partnerships, develop programs and advocate for the needs of older adults and caregivers in Region 10.
