The area agencies on aging in southeast Michigan provide information and referral for services such as meals, housing, in-home care, and transportation. They have trained their staff on how to sensitively identify and appropriately serve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender callers.
If you’ve been reluctant to call, or if you know of an LGBT senior who needs assistance, reach out to the area agency on aging that serves your community:
