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 2022 Medicare Part D open enrollment period began October 15th and runs through December 7th.

A SHIIP volunteer can assist you in finding a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan that meets your needs. Due to COVID-19, please note that some appointments may be done in person or by telephone. In order to better serve you, information may be asked to be provided before your scheduled appointment time.

Stockings for seniors

Nash County Senior Services is sponsoring its annual Stockings for Seniors program. The goal of this program is to provide Christmas stockings filled with various items to seniors in Nash County. We are in need of donations and help from the community in order to make this happen. Suggested items include gift cards, travel-size toiletry items, socks, snack items, hats, scarves, and any other small gift items. Donations will be accepted from Nov. 1st through Nov. 30th. Monetary donations will also be accepted and will go towards the purchase of stocking items. Contact The Southern Nash Senior Center (252-462-2034) or The Nash County Senior Center (252-459-7681) for more information.
