About Us

FCASPC is a collaboration of aging service providers and older adults that focuses upon the needs and issues that concern older adults in our county. Currently about 18% of Forsyth County is age 60 or better. Recent state data shows that by 2025, Forsyth County will have more residents age 60+ than children ages 17 and below; more than 95,000 older adults will call Forsyth County "home." Our goal is to move toward a senior-friendly community; one that meets the needs of all older adults, whether frail or still in the workforce, living in nursing homes or single family homes.

Nearly 25 years ago our county commissioners recognized the importance of planning for the future of the county's aging population. As a result, they created FCASPC to assess current and proposed policies, programs and services for older adults. The committee meets monthly to hear updates from agencies and hear presentations on a variety of topics of interest. Subcommittees also meet regularly to work on specific projects.

Together we work to:

  • Increase awareness of the issues we face as a community.
  • Provide a forum for discussion of issues that face older adults
  • Provide educational opportunities with a variety of speakers and the open sharing of information

Members of the committee are advocates for aging services that include:

  • Older adults from throughout the county
  • Service providers
  • The medical community
  • Foundations
  • Retirement and long-term care facilities
  • County government
  • The Area Agency on Aging
