Senior Resouces




The Senior Alliance
funds and administers a network of services for older adults in the region. The Senior Alliance, Area Agency on Aging 1-C, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency established in 1980 and designated by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services as the Area Agency on Aging for the 34 communities of southern and western Wayne County, Michigan. The Senior Alliance also acts as an agent of the MI Choice Waiver Program, arranging services for qualified older adults and individuals living with disabilities. 

The Senior Alliance’s policies are set by a board of directors. The board is advised in turn by an Advisory Council composed of older adults, service providers, and the general public. The agency’s chief executive officer is Jason Maciejewski.

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 The Senior Alliance, regardless of their financial or social status. For some programs and services, per the Older Americans Act, the agency will give preference to older adults 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.
