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.
