Here is an excellent directory of services for Georgia seniors and their caregivers:
Do you or a senior you know have trouble finding resources. Are you a caregiver that needs time off to go shopping or to go to a movie to get away for a couple hours?
Do you need a ramp installed? Click here. Are you concerned about falling and hurting yourself? You don’t have to pay a monthly fee to wear a button around your neck. Any cellphone, worn around the neck, will call 911. No contract, no monthly fee. As long as it is charged, any cellphone will call 911.
Perhaps Adult Daycare would be helpful. Click here for a list of Adult Daycares in Georgia.
