 Assistance and Referral Services for Atlanta Seniors

There are many sources of Assistance and Referral for seniors, both governmental and private. Both types are listed throughout the Senior Resources Directory.

Governmental agencies are usually free and offer aid and assistance to those who qualify based on circumstance or income. Services can range from health care to housing to advocacy. (Examples are: DFCS; Ombudsman Program; Area Agencies on Aging.) Be prepared to fill out many forms with personal information.

Organizations, such as United Way, Salvation Army and AARP, also can provide assistance and referral. Your local Senior Center can be a great resource.

Engaging the services of a Personal Care Manager (sometimes called Geriatric Care Manager) can be a wise thing to do, saving you time (and money) sorting out confusing and extensive details surrounding the ever-growing list of alternatives. A PCM usually has the background to be able to assess the situation and to create a plan based on your (or a loved one's) personal needs and requirements. Some can help with crisis intervention, locating Assisted Living or Memory Care Communities, supervision of Nursing Home care, telephone reassurance, compliance with medication, and many other supportive tasks.
