The annual Senior Living Week educational presentations hosted by the Housing Bureau for Seniors will be presented virtually this year on Zoom between Sept. 26 and Oct. 2.

For the many folks who attended the Senior Living Week Expo to find information about various housing options and senior services, there will be Grab & Go Expo bags handed out curbside at a senior center near you on various days. The events are free, but you have to register to attend the presentations and receive a Grab & Go Expo bag.

The mission of the Housing Bureau for Seniors (HBS), a division of Michigan Medicine’s Community Health Services, is to empower and inform seniors and caregivers in any housing-related capacity. The team utilizes various assessment tools to uncover the root causes of a client’s situation with the ultimate goal of avoiding homelessness.

HBS work in collaboration with community partners to ensure all-encompassing care and to reach the main goal of sustainable housing for clients.

HBS offers several free programs that serve the older adult community. That includes housing counseling, foreclosure prevention, eviction prevention, tax preparation services and educational presentations regarding senior wellness to older adults, caregivers and the community at large. The bureau also works in collaboration with many social service partners and Michigan Medicine.
