The focus of this division is to support the local senior community with not only food needs but also to address the needs of our growing and diverse senior population. This division is widely known for its most popular program: Meals on Wheels (MOW).

For more information on any of these services, please call (586) 469-5228.

Meals on Wheels is designed for older adults who are home-bound and unable to prepare meals for themselves. Through the program, a volunteer delivers a meal directly to the seniors’ door. Hot meals are locally prepared fresh on a daily basis and meet the recommended dietary guidelines.



  • The person must be at least 60 years of age or be the spouse of a person at least 60 years of age.
  • A Macomb County resident.
  • The individual must be home-bound (unable to leave their home without assistance).
  • The individual must be physically or emotionally unable to obtain food or prepare full meals.
  • Eligibility for this program is not based on income.

A $3.50 contribution is suggested for each meal. All donations go directly back into the program to help provide meals.

Please call the Office of Senior Services if interested in applying for this program.

If a senior is not eligible for Meals on Wheels, he or she can have a hot lunchtime meal at a Dining Senior Style site. These sites serve meals at various locations throughout Macomb County. A list is available here.

First credentialed Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® adult day center in the world!


We are proud to be the first adult day program in the world to become a Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® credentialed center. An important aspect of the Montessori Inspired Lifestyle® is to show deep respect for seniors by giving them a voice and empowering them to be as independent as possible by supporting their choice. The focus is on dignity, abilities, interests and participant-driven decisions.

Why does this credentialing matter to my family?

What is adult day care? 

Our credentialed center can provide caregivers with a needed break while giving older adults a chance to socialize with their peers and remedy the isolation and loneliness many experience.

Studies show that not only do older people who attend these centers have a better quality of life but also have beneficial effects on a caregiver’s wellbeing.


Our specialized center is for older adults diagnosed with dementia.  We provide the benefits of both social and medical models of care specifically for individuals with memory challenges.  This allows for a safe, welcoming, stimulating environment that promotes independence. 

Individuals attend on a planned basis, which may range from one to five full or half days per week. The schedule is determined based on the participant’s and family needs.

Companion Caregiving vs. Personal Caregiving

Companion care offers a wide variety of benefits. As the name implies, the best benefit is companionship. It’s more important than you might think. Humans are social creatures, and seniors tend to be isolated and lonely, which can impact their mental health.

Benefits of Companion Care

In one study, Lijun Liu, Zhenggang Gou, and Junnan Zuo concluded that:

“Social support partially mediates loneliness and depression (2).”

Minimizing or preventing loneliness and depression are some of the best benefits of companion care, but they aren’t the only ones. Other benefits of companion care include:

    • Seniors can stay in their homes longer and age in place without needing to go to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
    • The senior’s loved ones know they’re being taken care of when they can’t be there.
    • Seniors no longer need to worry about some tasks that have become too difficult to keep up with.
    • It’s easier for seniors to travel to appointments and run other errands.
    • Family members no longer have the stress of handling these duties themselves all the time.
    • Seniors are better able to keep their routines.

How Home Companion Care Works

Home care companion services allow people to stay in their homes longer by handling light housekeeping tasks, running errands, providing transportation, and offering companionship. The companion typically comes to the home on a set schedule, whether that’s a few hours a week or every day.

Does Medicare Cover Companion Care?

No, Medicare does not cover companion care if it is the only care you need (1). Medicare only covers home health care if:

  • You are homebound, AND
  • You’re getting services under a care plan created and reviewed regularly by a doctor, AND
  • You need intermittent skilled nursing care (other than drawing blood), speech-language pathology, physical therapy, or continued occupational therapy services.

However, some Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plans may cover in-home care services. You should review the details of your supplemental insurance to see whether companion care is included.

Does Your Loved One Need Companion Care Services?

Is your loved one experiencing reduced mobility or cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s or dementia? Do they seem to be lonely or struggle to keep up with things like housekeeping? Are you worried about them being alone all day long? Are you unable to spend as much time with your loved one as you would like?

There are many reasons your loved one may need companion care. Whatever the reason, companion care is often the first step toward providing assistance to your loved one while they get to stay at home and avoid the disruption of moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home.
