Our Mission

The mission of Forsyth County's Senior Services Department is to be the focal point where older adults gather for services and activities that respond to their diverse needs and interests, enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage involvement in their community through programs designed to reduce isolation, improve nutritional health, support health and community education and provide access to more extensive services for seniors, caregivers and their families.
