Take A Break
Take a Break is a Spring/Summer campaign by Region IV AAA to raise awareness of the important role caregivers play and the services available to help them "Take a Break.“ The campaign consists of media education, caregiver classes, demonstrations of handy gadgets to make tasks easier, and a no-cost opportunity to try different types of community services to help caregivers "Take a Break.”
Take a Break services are provided on a limited basis at no cost [donations accepted] to caregivers living in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren counties to raise awareness of community services they are not currently using respite care. Services provided at no-cost through Take a Break are introductory in nature and not ongoing. Ongoing service is available but may have costs or a wait list.
My Choice Home-Based Services
Managing and coordinating care in the home
The MI Choice Waiver program is a comprehensive, community-based program designed specifically for low income adults who need nursing-home level of care but want to remain in home or community-based living environments. The goal is to provide individuals with a choice to remain living independently in the community with services, instead of going to a nursing home.
Adults who meet income, asset, and level of care requirements can receive the services they need to remain living in their own home, the home of a caregiver, or in a residential setting such as an assisted living facility, adult foster care home or home for the aged. All MI Choice Waiver services are Medicaid funded.
