Funds Available for Attending Adult Day Services (ADS) Program
The Tri-County Office on Aging has allocated funds to Helping Hands Respite Care to underwrite all or part of the cost for new participants to our Adult Day Services program. The amount of funds available to an individual is based on their household income and a number of other factors. The best way for us to help a family understand whether or not their loved one qualifies is to call us directly at 517-372-6671, ext 100. The only hard and fast requirement is that the participant must be 60 years old or older.
We don’t want to miss the opportunity to help another family or families enjoy the enormous benefits of respite care and the life-enhancing benefits of our quality senior activity program.
You can be a hero to a friend, family member, or neighbor in need by making a referral to us right away. The timing is urgent so calling as soon as possible is important. There are enough funds available to serve up to five individuals depending on the number of days they wish to attend.
Beginning the process of enrolling in the Adult Day Services program usually includes a pre-arranged visit where the potential participant and caregiver/family come to tour the program, get questions answered, experience some activities, and stay for lunch. Call program supervisor Alison Sarkozy at 517-372-6671 ext 107 to set up a visit. A visit to our website or our Facebook page also provides great input on the kinds of activities included.
