Senior Services’ mission is to help older adults remain at home for 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.

With projections that Forsyth County’s elderly population will have doubled between the years 2000 and 2030 and the already existing waiting lists for some of its programs, Senior Services is striving to meet the escalating demand for services. Anticipating the community’s needs, the organization opened the state-of-the-art Elizabeth and Tab Williams Adult Day Center in 2000 and the innovative Senior Services Center, on the corner of Deacon Boulevard and Shorefair Drive, in early 2006.
Senior Services’ vision is to be a national model of service provision and volunteerism, as well as a valuable resource for all in the community. The agencies’ programs have the support of more than 2,000 community volunteers, and combined management and fundraising costs over the past 20 years average a remarkable 10% of total expenses, with 90% going to direct services for older adults.
