The AgeWell Atlanta Story
One of the most common calls the senior care experts at AgeWell Atlanta receive is from an adult tasked with the tremendous responsibility of helping with elderly parents. Doctors’ appointments. Transportation. Groceries. Socialization. Isolation. The stress on seniors, their adult children and other caretakers can be beyond challenging.
AgeWell Atlanta was created with a mission to offer assistance for senior adults in the Jewish community to “Age Well” through improved independence, quality of life, and social connection. Through a unique collaborative partnership of four Atlanta Jewish agencies, AgeWell Atlanta is able to provide expert advice, guidance, and a unique depth of experience and offerings.
Through its centralized concierge platform, AgeWell Atlanta makes the process easier, less stressful, and most importantly, a happier, healthier, better life for those we love.
