We believe people faced with decisions about long-term care should know their options. Through our Community Transition Services program Disability Network of Mid-Michigan provides individuals, regardless of their ability, an opportunity to choose community-based living as a viable alternative to nursing facility residency.  The program is open to anyone who resides in a nursing facility, receives Medicaid, and requests to return to their own home or to a more independent living environment. Each situation is based on individual needs and preferences.


Anyone can make a referral – the individual, family member, friend or agency representative – by simply calling our office at 989-835-4041. Once this referral is received, a meeting will be arranged to see if you qualify and to determine your individual barriers to living independently.  


During this person-centered process, the individual is regularly and actively involved in each stage, and he or she can terminate the process at any time. The transition process can take several months to complete before a person can move back into the community. This is important to ensure a safe and successful return.


We assist consumers in finding affordable housing, determining the accessibility of existing housing, and identifying any helpful modification options available if barriers are found during a home assessment.


We provide assistance in locating the necessary supports and services to help you remain in an independent living setting as long as possible.  Services are provided once per transition as funding is available.
