Services for Adults with Mental Illness

 

 
Senior Reach
 
Do you know a senior who needs help?

Senior Reach is here for you! We are a community program offering FREE assistance to Livingston County residents who are 60 years old or older. Our services are home-based, which means we come to you! Our goal is to provide assistance before a crisis occurs.

What is Senior Reach?

Support for the wellbeing, independence and dignity of older adults through community education, behavioral health services, and connection to community resources

  • Senior Reach is a community program that identifies older adults who may need emotional or physical support and/or connection to community services.
  • It is a simple way to help older adults get assistance before a serious crisis develops.
  • It is a strong partnership between agencies, businesses and community minded individuals – like you!
How does Senior Reach work?

Call the Senior Reach referral line at (517) 404-0614 to speak with Jamie or Erica, and explain your concern. We will contact the identified senior. Seniors can also contact the referral line themselves.


The Senior Reach Specialist (Jamie or Erica) will talk with the senior to share about Senior Reach, determine need and willingness for intervention. If the senior agrees, either Erica or Jamie will do a home visit to determine what services are needed.
