Who We Are and What We Do

Home/About Us/Who We Are and What We Do

Helping Older Adults, People With Disabilities and Their Families

What we do is simple. We help people access the services and programs they need to remain living independently and with dignity in their own home or with family caregivers. We receive federal and state funding allocated to serve older adults and family caregivers in our six-county southeast Michigan service region,  which includes Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland St. Clair and Washtenaw counties. We offer many services directly, while also  partnering with other community organizations in the delivery of senior services. Together with our community partners, we help build a strong local network of supports, resources and services for older adults in our region.

Programs and services we can help people access include:


Through organized advocacy efforts, we help make sure the voice of our region’s seniors are heard. We work closely with our state legislators to help them understand the needs of older adults in our community.

Our Mission and Values:

  • Mission: Enhance the lives of older adults and adults with disabilities in the communities we serve.
  • Vision: Independence and well being for those we serve.
  • Core Values: Teamwork, Integrity, Quality, Innovation and Respect.

Our Programs Are All About People

At AgeWays, our work is centered around the people we serve. Our staff brings a variety of expertise. We are social workers, nurses, finance managers and administrators. But whatever role we play, our work is always guided by a person-centered, person-first attitude that keeps the seniors and people with disabilities we serve front and center.
