Our Mission

Our mission is to help older adults remain at home as long as possible and to help them live with dignity. With concern for those who care for senior adults, we also help caregivers through services and education that will benefit them. Individuals who cannot afford to pay for services are of special concern to Senior Services and receive assistance to every extent possible through philanthropic contributions and available public funds.

Our Organization

Senior Services, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization, got its start as Creative Life Centers in 1974, when members of three Winston-Salem churches acted on their vision of operating day centers to meet the growing needs of impaired seniors. In 1976, Meals-on-Wheels, which had been functioning since 1962 as a totally volunteer program, became part of our agency. Since those early days, services have continued to expand and programs have been added, including the Williams Adult Day Center, which serves older adults dealing with memory impairment issues. In 1984, we changed our name to Senior Services to better reflect our mission and scope.

Become a Volunteer

With the senior population in Forsyth County projected to increase by 100% between the years 2000 and 2030, it is necessary that Senior Services position itself to reach more seniors in need. The success of many of Senior Services’ programs depends on the help of community volunteers, and the importance of volunteers will only grow as the organization works to meet the growing needs of our elderly. That is why WE NEED YOU!
