The survey will collect information on the following: demographics, health, housing, finances, transportation, unmet needs and service usage.  The survey is completely anonymous and none of your personal information will be shared. 

The survey should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete.  Your participation in this survey is not required but is very much appreciated.  If you have any questions, please contact Nichole Baker at (517)592-1922.

Congratulations to Marj Hobe, one of our MMAP Voluneer Counselors at Region 2 Area Agency on Aging, who received the Jackson County Senior Volunteer of the Year Award at the Jackson County Fair on Senior Day.  Marj received the award for the selfless generosity of her time, stepping in to help beneficiaries scheduled with another counselor when she needed time off unexpectedly, offering to counsel at the Grass Lake Senior Center for those who could not travel into Jackson or Brooklyn, blocking part of her day to assist a participant with memory issues read and understand his mail, and just being helpful in general to the AAA staff when there are Medicare questions.
