Atlanta Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Atlanta:

Home Delivered Meals Program

Address: 141 Pryor St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30303

This program, offered by Fulton County Senior Services, provides eligible seniors living in Atlanta with five meals per week delivered to their homes. The program is free of charge to seniors aged 60 and older. Under certain circumstances, the age requirement may not apply, such as when a spouse or caregiver needs help. Fulton County Senior Services also offers transportation assistance via their Uber / Lyft program. Eligible Atlanta area seniors may receive up to 16 rides per month for a reduced cost of only $1 per ride. 

One2One Telephone Reassurance Program

Address: 229 Peachtree St #100, Atlanta, GA 30303
Phone Number: (404) 463-3333

This program, offered by the Atlanta Regional Commission’s ‘Empowerline’ initiative, allows seniors to connect via telephone with an outreach support worker free of charge, 24 hours a day. Besides offering guidance concerning medical and personal resources, the support worker can provide counseling and consultation services to seniors. The program aims to decrease social isolation by providing ongoing companionship and support to seniors in Atlanta. Empowerline also offers an in-home meal delivery service to eligible seniors at little to no cost.

Home & Community-Based Services Program

DAS also offers various nutrition and wellness programs to eligible seniors in Atlanta. 

Community Care Services Program (CCSP)

Phone Number: (404) 463-3333

Another program sponsored by the Atlanta Regional Commission, the CCSP program provides Medicaid-eligible seniors living in Atlanta access to numerous supports and services, including medical social services and home health aide assistance. Around-the-clock emergency response is also available. To qualify for the Community Care Services Program, seniors must meet specific eligibility requirements, reside in Atlanta, and have an unmet need for care.

Senior Homestead Tax Exemption 

Address: 235 Peachtree Street NE, Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA 30303
Phone Number: (404) 612-6440

The exemption is applied automatically for current homeowners; however, new homeowners need to apply online or at one of five offices in the Atlanta area. 

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
