The Rockdale County Department Recreation and Maintenance oversees the Senior Services division. The division provides basic support services to older residents of Rockdale County. Rockdale residents 60 years and over and their families can obtain information and access to helpful agencies and resources by contacting the Senior Services Center. Personal assistance is provided by professional staff who assess the needs of individual clients and arrange needed services to maintain their maximum independence. Classes and recreational activities are available to adults over 50.
In addition to Rockdale County government, the following federal, state, and local sources provide Senior Services budget funding: Title III of the Older Americans Act; Social Services Block Grant (SSBG); Community Based Services (CBS); NSIP; and Income Tax Check off. Many of the grants require a cash match, and these funds, as well as other services and programs, are made possible by the support and donations from the Rockdale County Board of Commissioners, local churches, civic organizations, businesses and individuals, and Senior Services fundraisers.
