Find the right Washtenaw County programs and services for yourself or an older adult you know
Ahead of the Curve is an innovative new web-based program by Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County that aims to make Washtenaw County a caregiver-friendly community.
The program consists of a searchable online Senior Resource Directory website at getaheadwashtenaw.org that includes:
- Listing of more than 300 county-wide resources for older adults
- An online quiz to help older residents and their caregivers get connected with resources
- A blog that covers a range of topics from interesting older adults in Washtenaw County
- Interviews with local agencies that serve seniors
In addition to the other web tools, a five-part caregiving training will be introduced in Winter 2019 that includes methods to identify and report elder abuse.
Ahead of the Curve is a program of Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County and generously supported by the Michigan Health Endowment Fund (Healthy Aging).
