Backing up to thick, lush greenery, Forsyth Court independent senior living community in Winston-Salem, NC is located on a street that’s lined with shops, restaurants, a library and other conveniences. Forsyth Court’s two open-air courtyards, filled with birds, trees and plenty of seating, offer a tranquil, Eden-like retreat right in the heart of the community.

With roots dating back to the 1750s, the city still has a historic feel thanks to cobblestone streets lined with glamorous mansions (some of which you can tour!)

This neighborhood gem beautiful and serene spot for those times when you need a little more nature in your life.

 

Keeping You Informed

Our commitment to helping older people live better means sharing important and timely information to help you make an informed decision to live in a Holiday community. Forsyth Court operates with extensive protocols that mitigate the spreading of COVID-19.  If a resident tests positive for COVID-19, we notify residents and their designated contacts, our employees, and the local health department. In addition, the number of active cases is shared here. We are so proud of our team’s efforts and hard work to protect our community. See here for more information on our prevention and response measures.

Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.

That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.

Fitness Right at Home

Forsyth Court residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

A walking club treks through the inside of the building, taking advantage of the shelter and circular path of the upper floor hallways.

Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Winston-Salem area and Forsyth Court makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
