Senior Citizen Engagement

Story Behind the Curve

The Macomb County Health Department has partnered with the Macomb Community Action Office of Senior Services and Baker College dental hygiene students who are visiting congregate meal sites and providing oral health education to seniors, as well as toothbrush kits and information on where seniors can get low cost dental care in Macomb County.  In addition, the Health Department has partnered with the Office of Senior Services’ Meals on Wheels Program to provide information regarding where senior citizens can obtain low-cost dental care in the community.  Because senior participation in this program varies, the information will be re-distributed on an annual basis.
