"SSVBC provides professional services, opportunities and caring support for seniors in Van Buren County, Michigan to enhance their quality of life and living situations."



Senior Services of Van Buren County would like to take this time to express our concern for the senior population in our community.  Michigan is becoming one of the fastest growing states for positive tests of the COVID-19 virus.  Because of this and because of the vulnerability of the people that we serve we are asking that you STAY HOME PLEASE and limit your risk of exposure.  We also feel it is important to keep our staff safe, so they have been working from home and continue to call clients and return messages from those of you who have called our offices.  If you need something we are still just a phone call away.  Call (269) 637-3607 and leave a message, we are checking and returning calls within  24 hours of receiving your call.  Again, (269) 637-3607, leave a message and we will return the call promptly.  We will return to the office once the STAY IN PLACE ORDER has been lifted by the governor. 

If you have a medical emergency call 911 or your family physician.  We care deeply for all of you and wish we could wrap our arms around you all, to keep you safe and from harm.  Please be safe, we look forward to be seeing each and everyone of you.
