The quiet, prosperous Michigan city of Livonia offers exceptionally low crime rates, top-ranked medical care, and easy access to nearby Detroit and Ann Arbor. As of 2019, an estimated 93,665 people lived in Livonia, with 19.9% of them at least 65 years old. That gives Livonia a somewhat larger percentage of seniors than most U.S. cities, where seniors usually make up about 16.5% of a city’s population. Livonia is also one of the nation’s most racially homogenous cities. Nearly 90% of its residents are white, a number that’s markedly larger than the U.S. city average of 76.3%. 

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 found that the average monthly cost for homemaker services in the area is $4,767, while the associated monthly cost for home health aide services is $4,862. Elsewhere in the U.S., average monthly costs are $4,481 for homemaker services and $4,576 for home health aide services, making Livonia’s costs slightly higher.

Livonia Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Livonia:

Civic Park Senior Center

Address: 15218 Farmington Road, Livonia, MI 48154
Phone number: (734) 466-2555

This social hub for Livonia-area seniors provides plenty of activities designed to get participants more engaged with their neighbors. Activities include discussion groups, knitting circles, low-impact exercise classes that focus on lessening the effects of arthritis, and even table tennis clubs for the most sprightly seniors. The center also offers congregate meals five days a week for a suggested donation of $3 per meal.

Michigan Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program

Address: 1333 Brewery Park Boulevard, Detroit, MI 48207
Phone number: (800) 803-7174

The MMAP helps keep the state’s seniors and disabled people informed of and updated on their health benefit options. This counseling service can be beneficial for those who find themselves confused by application or eligibility requirements regarding Medicare and Medicaid. The MMAP also helps seniors protect themselves from scams, fraud, and identity theft related to health benefits.

Adult Protective Services

Address: 4081 W Polk Rd, Hart, MI 49420
Phone number: (855) 444-3911

Michigan’s APS is tasked with ensuring the safety of the state’s vulnerable adult population by protecting them from various kinds of neglect and abuse. The organization is also in charge of investigating allegations of third-party exploitation of a senior’s property or money. All allegations are investigated within 24 hours of the report first being made. 

The Senior Alliance

Address: 5454 Venoy Road, Wayne, MI 48184
Phone number: (734) 722-2830

This nonprofit organization works as Wayne County’s Area Agency on Aging and assists Livonia residents with a wide variety of senior-focused programs. Programs include Meals on Wheels, which provides seniors with hot, home-delivered food daily, and Friendly Reassurance, a social-support initiative through which trained volunteers make regular check-in calls to homebound seniors. The Senior Alliance can also help seniors set up transportation around town and find legal assistance that suits their specific needs.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
