January Star Performer of the Month:
Congrats to Megan Deemster for being January Star Performer of the Month!
Among her responsibilities, Megan serves as Task Supervisor for our CCD Interns. Here’s what one of her co-workers shared about Megan:
“Megan has been instrumental in the day-to-day success of our last few CCD interns. On the days that our interns are with us, they spend much of their days with Megan. She reaches out to her teammates to collect monitoring calls for interns to complete, which I’m sure is just as helpful to those in Care Management/Case Coordination and Support.
Megan always has a smile on her face and is pleasant to work with when coordinating projects or new activities for the interns. She had the idea of having interns help with the agency’s Meals on Wheels route and has volunteered several times alongside those interns. She does this while maintaining her own caseload.
I’m sure her participants are greeted with the same spirited and attentive demeanor that I see in everything Megan does. Megan contributes greatly to the passionate atmosphere at The Senior Alliance and is truly living our mission every day; we are so lucky to have her.”
We are lucky to have her! We are so glad you’re on our team, Megan.

Podcast Episode 27:
In the latest episode of Inside The Senior Alliance, our host and CEO, Jason Maciejewski, talks to the staff attorney at Neighborhood Legal Services, Tracey Rowans.
They discuss some of the services Neighborhood Legal Services offers to older adults, including Elder Law and Advocacy Center, preparing and organizing documents like estate planning, power of attorney, and last will and testaments, along with the services available to family members when their loved ones resist getting things in order.
The goal is always to make sure that everything is covered so older adults can live with the dignity and care they want.

National Blood Donor Month
January is National Blood Donor Month.
Winter is a critical time for blood donation as shortages become common for a multitude of reasons. People stop giving when they get busy during the holidays, because they get sick with a cold or flu, or because blood drives get snowed out.
Consider donating at one of the American Red Cross locations within 20 miles of our service area.
Livonia Blood Donation Center – 36650 Five Mile Rd., Livonia, MI 48154
Riverview Blood Donation Center – 14031 Pennsylvania, Riverview, MI 48192
Farmington Hills Blood Donation Center – 31150 Haggerty Rd., Farmington Hills, MI 48331
Ann Arbor Blood Donation Center – 4624 Packard Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48108
For more information about National Blood Donor Month and what you need to know about donation blood, visit the website of the American Red Cross.
We’re so proud of our team! Thank you!
