Presenter: Patricia Mead, MBA, CFRE
Vice President of Development, Senior Services, Inc.
Senior Services, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization whose mission is to help older adults remain at home as long as possible and to help them live with dignity. It has seven major programs responding to the needs of Forsyth County’s elderly: the Adult Day Center, Meals-On-Wheels, Help Line, Home Care, Senior Lunch, Living-at-Home and Elder Care Choices. Individuals who cannot afford to pay for services are of special concern to Senior Services and receive assistance to every extent possible through philanthropic contributions and available public funds. Senior Services also helps caregivers through services and education that will benefit them.
With the senior population in Forsyth County projected to increase by 100% between the years 2000 and 2030, it is necessary that Senior Services position itself to reach more seniors in need. The success of many of Senior Services’ programs depends on the help of community volunteers, and the importance of volunteers will only grow as the organization works to meet the growing needs of our elderly.
Patty Mead serves Senior Services as Vice President of Development. She has been with Senior Services since 2002 and has spent more than 17 years in the area of nonprofit development. She holds credentials as a Certified Fund Raising Executive, an MBA from Wake Forest and an undergraduate degree in liberal arts from Northwestern University. Patty has lived in Winston-Salem for 27 years and calls it home.
