Aging Resources

GENERAL INFORMATION & RECOMMENDED WEBSITES

This section discusses where seniors can get reputable aging information, and gives tips on these sources.

  • Non-profits – Aging service providers can be for-profit companies or non-profit.  In general, the non-profits may offer lower cost services. 
  • Hospice Care – Hospice started out as mostly non-profits.  But when Medicare began to reimburse for hospice services, most larger hospitals offered Hospice services of their own.  The AISC has offered webinars with two Michigan based non-profit organizations – Hospice of Michigan/Arbor Hospice and Angela Hospice of Livonia.  If you are not in the SE Michigan area, the AISC suggests non-profits be contacted first.
  • The Area Agency on Aging and local Senior Centers – There are Area Agency on Aging on the national, state, and regional levels.  These groups lobby for senior friendly policies and often offer aging services at a local level.  If you have a Senior Center in your community, check out its services.  In SE Michigan, there are three Area Agencies on Aging.
  • Medicare – The Federal government’s Medicare website provides a wealth of healthcare information that can be trusted.  This site provides ratings of healthcare providers and drug plans
  • Senior Organizations – AARP, etc.  Many senior organizations provide excellent material to retirees.  However, some of these groups receive funding from advertisers, and seniors need to be careful at these sites. AARP, for example, endorses a wide range of senior insurance and commercial products. 
  • Disease Focused Organizations – Alzheimer’s, Parkinson, Heart Associations, etc. provide  information which is usually trustworthy.
  • State Health Insurance Programs, SHIP – These organizations are federally funded and provide trusted information.  
  • Universities – Some universities with medical programs offer medical education and advice to the public.
  • Major Hospitals – Hospitals compete with one another to provide medical care.  Many hospitals, however, provide resume and credential data for their staff and facilities that is helpful in educating seniors and assisting in selecting providers.
