Senior service navigator helps connect older adults to variety of services in the community

Do you want to find out more about services for older adults, but you’re not sure where to start? A senior service navigator may be just the answer you need! The Muskegon County senior millage has provided funding for a Senior Navigator to hold regular office hours throughout the county to meet with older adults and link them to services.

Questions about Medicare coverage, or need help with completing forms for food stamps, Medicaid, Social Security or insurance coverage? The navigator can help. If an older adult has questions on how to access transportation for medical appointments, or obtaining medication or durable medical equipment, the navigator can assist. The service navigator may be able to help connect with emergency relief, adult home health, classes, and many more services.

The senior navigator holds office hours in the community, and can also meet in someone’s home, if transportation is an issue.
