The Senior Centers serve as the primary locations where older adults come together to receive services and participate in a wide range of programs designed to meet the diverse needs and interests of Cabarrus County's older adults, adults with disabilities and their caregivers.
The centers coordinate several wellness programs funded by the Older Americans Act and Cabarrus County. These programs encourage an active and healthy lifestyle for older adults by promoting total wellness and allowing the clients to remain independent.
A "person centered" approach is utilized in providing services and supports to the residents of Cabarrus County. This philosophy preserves the dignity of each individual while minimizing institutional care. The centers partner with other agencies to ensure local older adults and adults with disabilities receive all of the available services and support they need and desire.
Through Cabarrus County resident input, six priority areas have been identified and the Cabarrus County Aging Strategic Plan has been created. Strategies and proactive focus initiatives have been implemented which is the first of many steps Cabarrus County Government has taken to serve the varying abilities and stages of the aging population.
"To enrich the quality of life for persons of all ages and abilities by providing high quality recreation, education and social opportunities in harmony with natural resource preservation."
The centers provide recreational, educational and wellness activities as well as client services and outreach for older adults, adults with disabilities and their families. Located in Concord and Mt. Pleasant, the centers are places where seniors can gather to meet friends for a game of cards, billiards, shuffleboard and more; participate in a variety of classes and clubs; or enjoy dances, holiday celebrations, health screenings and special events. The Senior Center in Concord is certified by the State of NC Division of Aging and Adult Services as a Center of Excellence. For information on Senior Center policies, classes, services and more.
