About the senior centers

Our Senior Centers are the primary locations where older adults come together. They are a place to receive client services/outreach and participate in a wide range of programs and services for older adults, adults with disabilities and their caregivers:

  • Gather to meet friends for a game of cards, billiards, shuffleboard and more
  • Participate in a variety of classes and clubs
  • Enjoy dances, holiday celebrations, health screenings and special events

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 clients to remain independent.

Cabarrus uses a "person centered" approach to provide services and support to residents. This philosophy preserves the dignity of each individual, while minimizing institutional care.

The centers partner with other agencies. This partnership ensures clients receive all the available services and support they need.

Through resident input, the Area Strategic Plan(PDF, 10MB) identifies six priority areas. Cabarrus County Government implemented strategies and proactive focus initiatives based on these areas. These strategies and initiatives were the first of many steps taken to serve seniors. The diverse abilities and stages of the aging population are embodied in the plan.

Mission statement

"To enrich the quality of life for persons of all ages and abilities. We do this by providing high quality recreation, education and social opportunities. These opportunities are in harmony with natural resource preservation."

NC Aging & Adult Services certified Concord Senior Center as a Center of Excellence.

Senior Center Grant Monitoring Report

Cabarrus-ALP-SCO-ARPA and BG Centralina Regional Council are to be commended for the following achievements and best practices:

  • Communicating opportunities for involvement through multiple formats, including the Outlook and Session Guide, Facebook, County website and Everbridge phone tree.
  • Collaborating with numerous partner agencies to create as many opportunities for older adults as possible.
  • Hosting the annual Senior Health and Wellness Expo, which is very well attended.
  • Completion of all modules of the Ann Johnson Senior Center Management Institute by the Active Living Program Manager.
  • Receiving two grants to augment the wellness class offerings already in place.
  • Creating a form to meet the fee-based scholarship requirement that clearly outlines usage limits. This policy prevents issues with potential overuse or perceived unfairness by participants.
  • Developing an Advisory Council with multiple standing committees to mirror volunteer interests and strengths. The Council is able to accomplish a great deal on behalf of the Senior Center.
  • Operating non-traditional hours, such as 8 am to 8 pm Monday - Thursday, to meet increased scheduling demands.
