2022 Older Michiganians Day & Senior Action Week

May 9th through 13th

Older Michiganians Day is the Area Agencies on Aging Association of Michigan annual Advocacy Day at the Capitol. It is traditionally an exciting day to join with other advocates at the capitol, contributing our voices in support of older adults.

In 2022, there will be a small in person presence from Waiver Collaborative Group members on Wednesday, May 11. There will be many opportunities for additional advocacy throughout that week and beyond as the aging network focuses on these policy priorities:

• Support and Strengthen the Direct Care Workforce

• Rebalance Community-Based Long-Term Services and Supports

• Expand Access to MI Choice

• Increase Access to Home and Community-Based Services

• Bridge the Digital Divide for Older Adults
