As the county seat of Forsyth County, Winston-Salem is the central location for many senior care programs in the area. Its Senior Services program helps seniors age comfortably at home as long as possible. Of the nearly 248,000 people who live here, 14.1% are age 65 and older. Seniors and their families can enjoy an afternoon stroll through the Reynolda House Museum of American Art or the historic Old Salem Museums and Gardens. Salem Lake provides outdoor recreation, while Truist Park is a location to watch America’s favorite pastime.

Many seniors in Winston-Salem wish to remain at home while they enjoy the benefits of their community, and Winston-Salem has several home care agencies and companies to consider. The 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey indicates the average cost for both home care and home health care, which includes some medical services, to be $3,909 a month. This is slightly higher than the state’s average for home care of $3,813, but those in need of home health care will pay about $100 less than state averages.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Winston-Salem area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Winston-Salem Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Winston-Salem:

Senior Services Home Care

Address: 2895 Shorefair Drive, Winston-Salem, NC 27105
Phone Number: (336) 721-3402

Home Care provides help to homebound seniors in Forsyth County who need assistance with activities of daily living to remain at home safely. This service is for those who do not have a primary caregiver or responsible person who can help or have a caregiver who needs respite. Home Care helpers come for one to two hours every weekday for personal care or three to four hours for respite care. This program can use Medicaid funds to pay for care.

Senior Services Living-at-Home Program

Address: 2895 Shorefair Drive, Winston-Salem, NC 27105
Phone Number: (336) 725-0907

This Senior Services program is for seniors or younger individuals with a disability and who are Medicaid eligible. It provides additional help through the Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults to ensure these seniors can live at home safely and receive nourishment and care. Living-at-Home is specific for seniors who need a level of care similar to that of a skilled nursing facility but who wish to stay at home and can do so safely with the right care. To get help through this program, the senior must have a referral from a physician and go through an in-home assessment by a nurse and social worker.

Meals-on-Wheels

Address: 2895 Shorefair Drive, Winston-Salem, NC 27105
Phone Number: (336) 724-2040

Meals-on-Wheels in Forsyth County has three different programs for homebound seniors to ensure they get the nutrition they need. Seniors can sign up for hot meals, frozen meals or grocery deliveries through the program. Volunteers bring the food to the senior’s home and provide a short friendly visit to ensure the senior is remaining healthy. Any homebound senior who is age 60 and older may qualify for the service.

Shepherd’s Center Faith in Action Care Program

Address: 1700 Ebert Street, Winston-Salem, N 27103
Phone Number: (336) 748-0217

Through the Faith in Action Care Program, the Shepherd’s Center provides Winston-Salem seniors with transportation to medical appointments or grocery shopping and minor home repairs or disability modifications. The Center also offers friendly visits and respite breaks for caregivers. This is a volunteer service available at no cost. It is available to anyone age 60 and older who needs help.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – oftentimes it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
