The Senior Alliance - Area Agency on Aging 1-C:

The Senior AllianceŽ (TSA) is a private non-profit agency that was established in 1980, and designated by the Michigan Commission on Services to the Aging to operate as the Area Agency on Aging (AAA) for the 34 suburban communities in Southern and Western Wayne County. In 1998, the Michigan Department of Community Health authorized the agency to function as an Organized Health Care Delivery System. This new designation allowed the agency to add services to low-income disabled adults. Serving older persons, however, continues to be the main focus of the agency.

The service network includes in-home and community services such as home care, meals, information, advocacy, and support services. For more information about specific services, go to the website www.thesenioralliance.org.

The 34 communities served by TSA are jointly known as Planning and Service Area (PSA) 1-C in Michigan. Currently there are 16 AAAs in Michigan and over 660 nationwide. Each AAA is responsible for administering a network of community and in-home services for older persons within their assigned PSAs.

All persons age 60 and older who reside in the region are entitled to receive services funded by the Older Americans Act and Older Michiganians Act from TSA, regardless of their financial or social status. The agency, however, will give preference to older persons who are considered to be in the greatest economic or social need. Services provided through the Medicaid Waiver program are restricted to persons who meet qualification requirements.
