Presbyterian Villages of Michigan is committed to serving seniors and communities. It’s our goal to be a first-line provider of resources, including information. Aging should be an adventure, not a scary trip!

In the PVM Blog, the experts at PVM will regularly publish articles and information. Topics may range from smart ways to age in place in your long-time home, to tips on how to shop for a senior community. We will have articles on transportation, wellness, nutrition, technology, activities, outlook-on-life, and more.

Each year, an estimated 5 million older adults are abused, neglected, or exploited. Older Americans lose an estimated $2.6 billion or more annually due to elder financial abuse and exploitation, funds that could be used to pay for basic needs such as housing, food, and medical care. Unfortunately, it occurs in every demographic and can happen to anyone—a family member, a neighbor, even you. It is estimated that only one in five of these crimes are discovered.

It is often said: “April showers bring May flowers.” The month of May also ushers in Older Americans Month to honor America’s seniors. On May 16 the PACE (Program of All Inclusive Care For The Elderly) Association of Michigan is hosting its annual Day of Advocacy; and on May 17 the State of Michigan, along with the Area Agencies on Aging, is hosting the annual Older Michiganians Day celebration. These will be held at the Capitol in Lansing and will provide an opportunity to inform the Michigan Legislature as to the importance of support for seniors.

If you are over 65 years of age, you are not alone. The Washington Post reported recently that some 17% of people living in the United States, or more than one in six, were 65 or older in 2020, according to a report from the Administration on Aging.

We are pleased to announce the launch of PVM’s Caregiver’s Best Friend Podcasts. This will elevate our mission to provide information, education and practical tips to make the caregiver journey a smoother ride. Being prepared and making smart choices makes for a better experience whether you are a caregiver or a loved one receiving care.
