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. To fulfill the needs of Gwinnett County residents, Senior Services offers the following services:

IN-HOME RESPITE CARE

SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTERS
Gwinnett senior activity centers are located in Buford, 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.
Limited transportation is available to seniors who need assistance commuting to and from senior centers, medical appointments, and treatments. Vehicles used to transport seniors are wheelchair accessible. For information, call 678.377.4150.
