Frank Cody & Joyce Stout at Wear Orange event

Dear Advocates:

Hold onto your hats because we have a 2 for 1 program planned for the September 18th in-person meeting, 1:30 p.m. at Milestone Senior Services, 918 Jasper Street, Kalamazoo.

First, learn all about the need for the Kalamazoo County Veterans Millage, which will be on the ballot November 7, 2023.  Mike Fry from the Veterans Affairs Committee will speak and answer your questions.

Then hear from Christine Vanlandingham, CEO of the Region 4 Area Agency on Aging on the topic of rebalancing long term care service funding so more Michiganders can stay in their homes and what advocates can do to encourage this.  Why is this important if you aren’t on Medicaid?  Because these are funds provided by us, the taxpayers, for services that are less expensive to provide at home than in a nursing home, and home is where our relatives and friends want to stay.  Find out how rebalancing can also have a positive effect in nursing homes, which many of us might need for short-term rehab.  

“See you in September,” as the song goes….
