AARP’s 2017 class of Capitol Caregivers recognizes 91 state legislators, five governors, one lieutenant governor, and one justice from more than 30 states. Among those honored are Michigan lawmakers SenJames Marleau, R-Lake Orion and RepEd Canfield, R-SebewaingMarleau chairs the Senate Appropriations Health and Human Services Subcommittee and Canfield chairs the House Appropriations Health and Human Services Subcommittee. Marleau and Canfield quarterbacked the passage of the 2018 fiscal year Michigan Department of Health & Human Services budget, which provides additional funding for home- and community-based services (HCBS) that will allow more older adults in Michigan to live safely and independently as they age. Expanded support includes: An increase of $3.6 million, or 11.7 percent, in state funding for non-Medicaid in-home senior servicesThat includes $1.5 million for home-delivered meals, and $2.1 million for other in-home senior services, such as help with daily living activities like shopping, laundry, and cooking meals An increase of $25.3 million, or 7.8 percent, in overall funding for MI Choice – Michigan’s HCBS Medicaid waiver programMI Choice provides home and community-based services for older adults, who qualify for Medicaid and who, without those services, would need to move into a nursing home. Increasing access to MI Choice is a win-win for MichiganAARP research shows that the overwhelming majority of Michigan residents prefer to “age in place” in their own homes and communities. In addition, continuing to rebalance Michigan’s long term care system – that is, continuing to allow a greater share of the people needing services to remain in their homes – can also save taxpayer dollarsMedicaid dollars can support nearly three older adults or people with disabilities in home and community-based services for every one person in a nursing home.
