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.

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.

Her son, Henry (Jaeden Liedberher) is an 11-year-old genius who not only masters academics, but manages the family finances and acts as an emotional support for Susan.
