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 350 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.

Where to Turn

Where to Turn is Pierce and King counties’ most comprehensive guide to senior services that are provided through government agencies, publicly-funded organizations, nonprofits and for-profit organizations that accept Medicare or Medicaid. More than 500 service providers are listed by type of service for quick, easy reference.

Where to Turn is distributed along with Senior Scene.  Bulk copies can be picked up at our Tacoma office, or for a single copy send us a long self-addressed envelope with a 60-cent stamp.

Advertising and volunteer opportunities

Our advertisers are great partners, as their support keeps the Senior Scene and Where to Turn free for readers.  With an estimated 40,000 Senior Scene readers who pick them up at 350 locations in Pierce and King Counties, advertisers gain access to a broad senior market and a focused customer base.  We also distribute 65,000 copies of Where to Turn annually to seniors, their families, friends and caregivers.

Our volunteers are also vital to our success. Volunteers are involved in many aspects of our publications submitting articles, working as proofreaders, or delivering newspapers.
