The Manistique Senior Center is participating in a study through Michigan State University in the upcoming months. The goal of the study is “to reduce risks for financial abuse/ fraud for family caregivers who take care of an older Michigander with cognitive decline or dementia.”

We are looking for caregivers and older adults with cognitive decline to participate in this study. Participants will receive information about community resources tailored to their needs and some will receive additional skills training and case management services.

There is funding available and will allow for all participants to receive $100 simply for participating in the study. There are also other opportunities within the study to earn up to $500. Please contact us at the center by calling (906) 341-5923 or by email at seniors@
