Memorial Day Hours

 

While we should always be thankful for those who protect and serve our great country, Memorial Day is not a day in which we remember those who are currently in service to our nation, but instaed to honor those who died in service.

Memoial Day is "a day on which those who died in active military service are remembered", and is traditionally observed on the last Monday in May.

 

Our offices will be closed this Monday, and will re-open for service on Tuesday, May 30th at 8:30 a.m.

 

 

 

Need Help? 

 

Do you know someone who needs some extra help to make the transition from nursing home to home? 

Sometimes people face barriers that keep them in the nursing home such as a loss of a living environment and the need to find an affordable and accessible place to live.  Or a home needs a few minor modifications to make it safe.  Or maybe they just need some help setting up services to help them at home.  Our Nursing Home Transition program is here to help.  We are able to promote independence and work one on one with Medicaid eligible nursing home residents to return to the community.

Moving from the Nursing Home – Senior Services of Southwest Michigan. Helping people life safely and independently Senior Services Nursing Facility Transitions program helps eligible nursing home residents move comfortably back into their community of choice.  Contact (269) 382-0515 or (800) 711-2113 for more details about the MI Choice Waiver Program.

 

 

 

Gwen Tulk – Michigan Senior Citizen of the Year


One hundred year old Gwen Tulk longtime Meals on Wheels (MOW) volunteer, was named Senior Citizen of the Year on May 17th, at the State Capitol in Lansing. Gwen was recognized for her volunteer efforts as a ‘hopper’ for MOW through RSVP- Your Invitation to Volunteer, a program of Senior Service. The prestigious award was presented by Richard Kline, Director, Aging and Adult Services Agency and Consumers Energy, OMD Sponsor.

Gwen received her award on Older Michiganians’ Day, a fitting tribute to a volunteer who has delivered meals to homebound older adults for three decades, and whose efforts with ‘Every grandchild By Two’ helped to increase Michigan’s immunization rate from 45% to 91% compliance. When Budget cuts threatened RSVP, Gwen wrote letters to the editor and gave testimony before the House, highlighting the dire effects any funding cuts would have on the program; she finished to a standing ovation.

We congratulate Gwen on this prestigious award which annually celebrates an older adult whose community has been enhanced through their active engagement, volunteerism and service to others. Special thanks to Director Kline and Shirley Bentsen of Aging & Adult Services Agency/Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and Consumers Energy.  To watch a short video on Gwen as she receives the award CLICK HERE
