Nash County Senior Services

The Senior Services Division of the Recreation and Senior Services Department celebrates aging, supports independence in our community, and addresses the needs of the complete individual by offering information, referrals, and access to continued growth and development. Our mission is accomplished by providing programs and services for seniors 60 years of age or older.

The Senior Services Division operates two senior centers to serve the community: the Nash County Senior Center in Nashville and the Southern Nash Senior Center in Bailey. Recreational programs offered include aerobics, arts and crafts, cards and games, day and overnight trips, dance classes, socials, support groups, and educational classes. 
Additionally, the Nash County Senior Services Division offers a wide array of services to seniors and their caregivers. The Home Delivered Meals program is provided in the communities of Bailey, Middlesex, Samaria, Spring Hope, Nashville, Castalia, Corinth, Red Oak, and West Mount. Family caregiver resources, including Respite Services, are available for caregivers. Other services provided include Frozen Meals, Project Lifesaver, General and Medical Transportation, and referral information for other services not provided by our agency.

Upcoming Events

The Senior Services Division of the Nash County Recreation and Senior Services Department is partnering with NC MedAssist to sponsor a Mobile Free Pharmacy. This is a service that provides over-the-counter medication at no cost to the community. Items to be given away include cold, cough, and flu medicine; bandages and first aid supplies; allergy and pain relief; vitamins; children’s medicine; and much more while supplies last. There are no income requirements and no ID is required. Eligible recipients must be at least 18 or older. Each recipient will receive an average of $150 worth of free medication and supplies. You can also pick up items for a friend or family member. 
Operation Medicine Drop (OMD) is a FREE drug take-back program that gives people a safe and secure way to dispose of unwanted over-the-counter and prescription medications. Join the Nash County Sherriff’s Office on this day by bringing and disposing of any old medication that may be in your medicine cabinet.
The event will be drive-thru and located at the Claude Mayo Administration Building at 120 W. Washington St, Nashville NC 27856 on Saturday, September 10th from 9am-2pm. If you do not pre-register, you can come by and pick up a pre-packaged bag of medication while supplies last.
