You can support the Silver Key Coalition:
• Support help for the nearly 4,500 seniors languishing on wait lists for basic services such as home-delivered meals and help with bathing, dressing, medication, shopping and household chores, and others who are underserved and have unmet needs.
• Raise awareness that individuals on wait lists for extended periods of time are:
o More likely to end up living in a nursing home
o Less likely to remain living in their own home
o More likely to seek health care from a hospital emergency room
o More likely to die waiting for assistance.
• Support the effort to make Michigan a no wait state for in-home services starting with a $5 million increase for the fiscal year 2015 and a total of $10 million by fiscal year 2018.

The Silver Key Coalitin would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous donations.
The vast majority of seniors hope to remain living in their own homes as they age. As such, the Coalition selected the silver key as the symbol for this campaign because having a key means having your own home and in-home services are the key to making aging in place a reality for thousands of Michigan’s seniors. The key stands for independence and we are asking Michigan’s legislature to unlock these important services for Michigan’s seniors.
You can show your support by wearing the silver key lapel pin proudly. Below is the ordering information for the Silver Key Lapel Pins used in the Silver Key Coalition in-home services campaign.
