Senior Media Services – Senior Scene Newspaper and Where to Turn Guide

Providing vital news and information for seniors

Senior Media Services has been serving the information needs of seniors for over 30 years.  We produce the monthly newspaper, Senior Scene, and the annual resource directory, Where to Turn.

Senior Scene

Each month, the Senior Scene newspaper publishes information and news for adults 55 and up to help them lead healthier, happier, and more active lives.  We offer news, feature articles, personal profiles, opinion pieces, volunteer opportunities, a calendar of events and more.  We also publish special housing directories periodically.

Senior Scene is available for free at more than 370 locations throughout Pierce County.  You can find it at senior and community centers, senior living communities, public libraries, hospitals and other medical facilities, churches, government offices and private businesses.
