MSHL is a non-profit organization encouraging independence and dignity by redefining aging.

Because of COVID-19 has been diagnosed in Michigan and due to the high-risk population we serve, Milan Seniors for Healthy Living wanted to take a moment to communicate with you on our agency’s response.

Individuals over 60 years old, immune compromised, and those with underlying health conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes are at greater risk of serious health consequences if they are exposed to this virus. We want to do all we can to be responsive about this serious health concern and to slow the potential spread of the virus.  Since many of our clients or their family members fall in these categories, we are following the recommendations of our state and county health departments for organizations that serve a high risk community to cancel gatherings of more than 10 people whenever possible.

MSHL WILL BE SUSPENDING OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED SENIOR CENTER ACTIVITIES FROM MONDAY MARCH 16 UNTIL APRIL 6. SOME ESSENTIAL SERVICES WILL REMAIN AVAILABLE.

This is simply a preventative step to reduce the potential spread of the virus and not due to any cases of infection in our center or community. As more information becomes available and recommendations are passed down, we will evaluate conditions and decide our next steps.  Updates will happen via Facebook, website, and email.

In the meantime, MSHL’s office will be answering phone calls, as well as some essential services. Meals on Wheels clients will continue to receive meals and our Transportation service will be available.

For those seeking Transportation Services, MSHL will screen and prioritizing all ride requests to be able to meet the demand – life essential rides, medical rides, and quality of life rides in that order.

In the meantime, please follow the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (cdc.gov):
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often for at least 20 seconds (Sing ‘Happy Birthday slowly 2Xs);
  • Maintain an increased social distance of 6 feet when possible;
  • If you are ill, stay home
  • Cough into your elbow
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces often
In an effort to minimize the impact of this disruption of our services, MSHL staff will be checking in on the welfare of our participants and will do all that we can to provide assistance with obtaining access to food, personal hygiene items, and medications. Anyone who is 60+ years of age who are temporarily homebound due to this virus are encouraged to signup to receive Meals on Wheels. Community members are welcome to call us at 734-508-6229 if assistance is needed.
