Gwinnett County Senior Services
Gwinnett County Senior Services provides a variety of programs and services for our seniors, designed to enhance the quality of their lives and maintain their independence. These services also assist the families of seniors with their caregiving duties.

Gwinnett County's Senior Services are open to all Gwinnett residents ages 60 and older. Some programs offered are based on a sliding fee scale depending on their income.


Information and Assistance
This is a free service which provides seniors and their caregivers answers to questions about senior issues. It offers up-to-date information on housing, nutrition, social security, legal aid, counseling, education, recreation, rehab services, health care, Medicare and Medicaid, adult abuse and neglect, nursing homes and much more. Call 678.377.4150 Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm.

If you would rather speak to someone in person, please visit the Gwinnett Senior Services Center at 567 Swanson Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30043.


Care Management
Care Managers are available to meet with individuals and families to evaluate, educate, and determine needs for services, explore potential resources, and help seek other funding options. The goal is to develop a plan to support the client and/or caregiver for the senior to live at home independently and safely and to prevent the caregiver from becoming overwhelmed.

In-Home Services
Home Delivered Meals
This service assists seniors who are homebound or unable to prepare their own meals. Meals on Wheels delivers frozen, chilled, or hot meals on a regular basis Monday through Friday. The meals are tailored to meet the nutritional needs of seniors. For inquiries about eligibility to receive meals, call 678.377.4150. For information on becoming a Meals on Wheels volunteer, call 678.377.6716.

Homemaking
This service helps to meet life's basic needs through light housekeeping. For information, call 678.377.4150.

In-home Respite Care
The Respite Program is designed for those with or without dementia. It provides caregivers of seniors a break from caring for their loved ones. For information, call 678.377.4150.


Centers
Centers are located in Buford, Centerville, Lawrenceville, and Norcross. The centers function as community gathering places for adults 60 and older. Seniors participate in daily planned programming activities such as exercise and dance classes, arts and crafts, table games, billiards and day trip excursions. The centers host various guests who perform and entertain or speak about medical, financial, and consumer issues important to seniors. Senior clients also receive hot, balanced lunches Monday through Friday. There are no membership fees but some classes and day trips may have small fees.
