AASA's mission is to provide statewide leadership, direction, and resources to support Michigan's aging, adult services, and disability networks, with the aim of helping residents live with dignity, meaning, purpose, and independence.
If you need aging services to maintain your independence at home or in your community, if you are a caregiver looking for support or if you saw our caregiving ads and want more information, contact your local Area Agency on Aging today to learn more about the services available in your area.
Please note: Aging & Adult Services does not provide direct services.
Alzheimer's Disease is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older.
Michigan’s 16 area agencies on aging (AAA) are regional, non-profit agencies created by federal and state legislation to respond to the needs of older adults in every local community. These entities are funded by AASA and each is a designated planning and service area (PSA), which operates a service delivery system that offers a range of community-based supports and services.
The information on this site may be filtered by area agency on aging region. We present the data this way because state and federally funded programs for adults age 60 and over are organized by AAA region and because older adults are among the most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19.
