Senior Services

In 1998 the voters of Kent County approved the first senior services millage at .25 mill for eight years. In August 2006, the senior millage was renewed and increased to 1/3 mill for another eight year term. The Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan was selected to provide oversight of the services that began in the summer of 1999.

To be eligible for services, you must be a Kent County resident and 60 years of age or older. Donations are requested for all services and some services require the cost to be shared based on the individual’s income.
