Dorothy C. Benson Senior Complex  

The Dorothy C. Benson Senior Multipurpose Complex, commonly referred to as the Benson Center, is a Fulton County facility for seniors 55 and older. The goals of the facility include supporting the recreational, intellectual, social, physical and health needs of senior citizens. This facility promotes a safe, active, meaningful and productive life for seniors.
The complex consists of three units.
  • In the Multipurpose area, planned activities are available in education, hobbies, health and wellness, swimming, recreation and more.
  • The Adult Day-Care unit is for seniors who need assistance throughout the day.
  • The Senior Neighborhood Center is designed for semi-active seniors and provides assistance with transportation and nutrition. For more information about the Neighborhood Center, visit their web site by clicking the link below.

To learn more about the programs at the Benson Center, call the front desk at 404-613-4900.
