Office of Aging

 

 

DeKalb County is home to more than 100,000 older adults and they are the roots from which our community grows. Senior Services is dedicated to providing opportunities that enrich their lives and encourage them to engage in healthy activities, manage their wellness, have access to resources, and become socially involved. Providing adequate resources ensures community members can benefit from the contributions and experiences of older adults. With an emphasis on home and community-based services that support independent living, DeKalb County is committed to raising awareness about issues facing older adults, and helping all individuals thrive in communities of their choice for as long as possible.
