About Senior Times


Senior Times, established in 1993, is the regional resource for area senior adults published monthly in a newspaper format. Learn all about local resources and issues impacting mature adults as well as their adult children from monthly featured topics to Medicare, Social Security, Veteran's benefits, legal issues, guardianship, and so much more. Senior Times also provides monthly information about community and senior center activities, housing options, caregiver needs, support groups, meal sites, transportation, and more. Senior Times is published twelve times per year. Senior Times is distributed free through our advertisers, area professional offices, and key points of interest primarily in Barry, Branch, Calhoun, and Jackson Counties, along with limited quantities to surrounding counties.

Senior Times is also hand delivered, for free distribution to the general public, to hundreds of locations throughout our market area. We want it out there, working – where people shop and enjoy the community.
