Senior Alliance offers waiver program help

The Senior Alliance (TSA) is promoting a little-known waiver program that provides free medical and daily needs services to aging and disabled adults within their own homes.

The MI Choice Waiver ensures that eligible adults receive Medicaid-covered services - such as those provided by nursing homes - at their home, a licensed facility or assisted living community.

"Adults historically had no other option than nursing homes or relying on loved ones as they aged," TSA CEO Tamera Kiger said. "Freedom and independence matter. The MI Choice Waiver is an incredible alternative for the times in which we currently live."

Funded through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, services can include assistance with personal care, medication management, snow/lawn care, meals, transportation, counseling, respite care and specialized medical equipment.
