Snyder Looking to Improve Life for Seniors in MI

This week Governor Rick Snyder reiterated his call to make Michigan a no-wait state for in-home senior services, urging lawmakers to approve an additional investment of up to $20 million next year. The Governor said Michigan has work to do to prepare for its growing older adult population, noting that 1 in 4 Michigan residents will be at least 60 years old by 2030. Snyder focused on four key goals to improve the quality of life for seniors — living healthy lifestyles, staying active and engaged, achieving financial security during retirement and retaining independence — and urged greater collaboration between state agencies tasked with service delivery. The Governor announced that the state will develop an aging website that will be a one-stop-shop for all aging-related information and provide older adults easier access to the numerous programs and services that are available to them. It will launch in early 2015.
