Huron Valley Home Care Agency Expands to Livingston County

Ypsilanti's Huron Valley Home Care Agency is expanding. Find out what this local organization can offer vulnerable, older adults in southeast Michigan.

An Ypsilanti-based alternative nursing home care organization is expanding into Livingston County, bringing services for vulnerable older adults into Brighton, Pinckney, Hartland and Howell.

The Huron Valley Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly recently received approval for the expansion by the state of Michigan, the Livingston Daily reports. Huron Valley PACE serves the social, medical and supportive needs of its low-income, older-adult (age 55-plus) patients.

The program serves residents who meet nursing home requirements but “can live safely in their homes and communities,” the article notes.

“There are pockets of need among low-income older adults living in these areas and limited resources available to them,” Lindsay Mann-Shanahan, Huron Valley PACE marketing manager, reportedly said in a news release.

Mann-Shanahan also said Huron Valley PACE has received “many inquiries” from people in the newly-expanded zip codes that the agency can now serve – which include 48114, 48169, 48353 and 48843.

“Being able to serve more people in Livingston County is huge,” she said in the article.

There are many types of senior housing options, ranging from assisted living centers to apartments offering a fully independent lifestyle. In addition to alternative forms of nursing in-home care, home modifications may also be needed to make a home safe for a senior who wants to continue living at home.

At Huron Valley PACE, services provided for seniors include primary and specialty medical care, prescription drugs, medical transportation home care and other types of support services to help a senior continue living at home “as independently as possible for as long as possible,” the agency’s website notes.

To quality for PACE, a person must meet the following requirements.

  • Age 55 years or older
  • Lives in the service area of a PACE organization
  • The person is certified by the State of Michigan as meeting the need for the nursing home level of care.

The individual is able to live safely in the community with the help of PACE services when joiningFor more information on the program, visit huronvalleypace.org. For other resources for seniors, visit Metro Parent’s Guide to Helping Your Aging Parents.
