May Is Older Americans Month

Older Americans sometimes face difficult health challenges. We're here to help you through times of serious illness or injury. The home care staff of the Health Department of Northwest Michigan includes registered nurses, home health aides, therapists, and medical social workers. In collaboration with you and your personal physician, our staff develops a unique Plan of Care to help you recover from illness or maintain or improve your independence.

The Community Connections team is specially trained and very skilled at connecting people to resources to help with needs like transportation, utilities, housing and home supplies or repairs, food assistance, employment, access to care, etc.

The staff remains connected to the client until the need has been confirmed as met in most cases. Referrals can be made for anyone in the community - any age, no income or other eligibility, and you do not have to be a current HDNW client.
