Welcome to the Blueprint for Aging!

Welcome to our site! As an organization dedicated to helping older adults maintain their independence and quality of life in Washtenaw County, we have created this site for residents, service providers, and policy-makers interested in topics relevant to older adults.

Here you will find information and links to agencies and resources for older adults, data and current research on older adults, as well as topics of interest to older adults.

We are very pleased that you are visiting our site, and we hope that you find it useful!

OMD is an annual event that takes place on the East Lawn
of the Capitol Building in Lansing in early June. This event brings together hundreds
of seniors, aging service providers and senior advocates.

This free event provides the opportunity to share a unified voice with the Legislature
expressing the concerns, challenges, and opportunities for older adults by the
experts, older adults themselves and aging service providers.
