It’s a Good Day at TSA: December

The holiday season is a time of joy, celebration, and togetherness.

For aging adults, this time of year can bring about a range of emotions, from warmth and nostalgia to feelings of loneliness and isolation.

In the spirit of compassion and connection, it becomes especially important to check in on our aging friends and family members during the holiday season. Learn more in our Guide to Holiday Check-Ins.



Give Hunger a Holiday

1 in 7 older adults in the U.S. struggle with food insecurity. On the holidays when traditional food delivery services are not available, aging adults in our community count on The Senior Alliance to provide a hot meal.

Thanks to your generosity, in 2022, over 3,300+ holiday meals were delivered to older adults who would have otherwise gone hungry.

Would you consider donating to The Senior Alliance this season? Join us to help us Give Hunger a Holiday. Make a donation.

What Drives You (to volunteer)?

Our nation’s aging population is growing rapidly, with more and more people living longer lives with less money available to them. And today, with our nation experiencing the highest inflation rate in 40 years, the aging population is especially vulnerable.

Many count on Meals on Wheels to provide for their most basic needs.

Meals on Wheels volunteers are essential to caring for our community’s most vulnerable. Sign up now and help us make a difference in Wayne County.

Volunteer today.

We love hearing the stories of how The Senior Alliance has made a difference in the lives of our community members. When we get to share them with you, it’s A Good Day at TSA!

Here’s a story from one of our Care Management team members here at The Senior Alliance:

“After approving a participant’s daughter’s request for increased hours for her father’s care, the daughter, Carrie, expressed her sincere gratitude for all The Senior Alliance has done for her parents over the years.

With living out of town and life getting busy, she and her family do everything that they can for her parents, but she says that she would not have been able to do it without the help and support of the Care Management team at The Senior Alliance.

Giving a special shoutout to Information & Assistance Specialist, Brenda Phelps, for all of her kindness, Carrie also wanted to express her gratitude on behalf of her parents for all of the wonderful support that coordinators have given. She feels truly blessed to have found TSA.”
