Plymouth Community Council on Aging (PCCA):
The Plymouth Community Council on Aging (PCCA) is a non-profit corporation, organized to coordinate programs, public and private, which promote and safeguard the independence and well-being of the citizens age 55 and over in the greater Plymouth Community.
The PCCA works with many local agencies to insure that seniors receive assistance, information and enjoyable social events. PCCA works with the City of Plymouth, the Charter Township of Plymouth and the United Way to oversee the Senior Transportation Program. This program allows seniors to reach medical appointments outside of the Community.
The PCCA has a Board of Directors consisting of ten members elected from the general PCCA membership, or appointed by the Board of Directors, from which four members serve as officers. The PCCA staff consists of a Director / Newsletter Editor, who provides service and information from an office located in the Plymouth Township Hall (9955 N Haggerty Rd., Plymouth MI 48170). The Director serves as a liaison with the Friendship Station and the Cultural Center in addition to coordinating monthly meeting or events.
Twelve issues of the Senior Sentinel Newsletter are edited and published by the Director and distributed to the membership as well as to the Community. The newsletter keeps Plymouth Seniors informed on programs, projects, classes and trips.
The office hours for the PCCA Office are
10:00 am – 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

The Senior Alliance - Area Agency on Aging 1-C:
The Senior Alliance® (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.
