The Senior Services Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness is on the way! This state-of-the-art center will bring various collaborating organizations under one roof to offer healthcare, intentional intergenerational interaction, and arts-based activities to Forsyth County’s older adults and the community at large.
The new Center will:
- Include a new, larger home for Senior Services’ award-winning Elizabeth and Tab Williams Adult Day Center.
- Become home to one of Senior Services’ Senior Lunch sites.
- Expand upon research and wellness services conducted in partnership with local medical providers and experts.
- Establish a national model for the collaborative delivery of services to seniors
In addition to becoming the new home for one of Senior Services’ Senior Lunch sites and for the Williams Adult Day Center, numerous intergenerational, arts, human services, and healthcare/wellness partners will bring their expertise into one location to serve our community better! Joining us are:

Creative Arts Opportunities
Although the building is still under construction the programmatic work has already begun. Senior Services Creative Connections program is already using the arts to enrich the lives of older adults and the results are amazing! Learn more about Creative Connections and how its impact will grow once the Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness is completed.
On April 27, 2022, we broke ground on the Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness, and since then there has been a flurry of activity on the construction site. The latest milestone was the completion of the 62,000-square-foot concrete slab which will serve as the foundation of our vision. Next up, we’re looking forward to the arrival of 296 tons of steel, which means the structure of the building will begin to take shape in early February. Senior Services and its collaborators are eagerly awaiting the day when the doors to the Intergenerational Center for Arts and Wellness open to the community in the Fall of 2023.
Give to the Future
A project of this scale takes the vision, dedication, and support of an entire community. We need people like you to join us in building the future of care for older adults.
