Increase in funding will allow Meals on Wheels & other services to Georgia seniors to remain in place

With the graying of the boomer generation, more tax dollars are starting to flow into services that help seniors age in place.

The governor’s 2017 proposed state budget has increased funding for home and community-based services, providing seniors with the help they need to continue living independently. It includes more money for services such as transportation, home-delivered meals, light housekeeping, adult day care, respite care to give family caretakers a break, and home modifications, which provide for items such as grab bars for showers and ramps for steps.
