Support Keeps You Independent

A MI Health Link member who was 99 years old, living alone and doing OK, but was bordering on needing nursing facility care.

The care coordinator discussed with the member about the availability of a personal care and the member agreed. As a result, the member, Sadie, receives bathing assistance homemaking, and medication set-up through MI Health Link personal care.

She is now 100 years old and her family reports, “Sadie is doing wonderfully.” With the extra help and family support she is able to stay in her own home, enjoy cooking and her other interests.
