With 100 Baby Boomers turning 65 every day, Atlanta’s senior population is rapidly expanding and is expected to increase 65.8% by 2030. Additionally, Fulton County has the highest percentage of seniors living in poverty (12%), living alone (nearly 50%), and having difficulty leaving the home (25%) when compared to the rest of the region (Atlanta Regional Commission, 2012).
Meal Services: Our flagship program includes home-delivered meals, congregate meals, and emergency pantry bags.
Home Repair Services: We provide free and low-cost home repairs so that seniors can stay in their own homes and communities as they age.
Adult Day Health Center: Our Adult Day Health Center provides specialized care for seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our Center is a medical model and licensed by the State of Georgia.
Neighborhood Senior Centers: We manage six Fulton County Neighborhood Senior Centers, providing a place of community, support, wellness and activity for seniors age 60 or older.
