There are so many people who know they need help, however, really do not know where to start. The Detroit Area Agency on Aging provides direction and step by step instructions to caregivers and care recipients who need guidance on helping a loved one stay and age in their own home.

DAAA had a wonderful diabetic summer program. We learn how to read food labels and what not to eat plus they gave us gift cards to Meijer and let us shop for food. The instructors were very helpful and supported. Great experience I'm waiting for more classes.
