Care Management
Care Managers are available to meet with individuals and families to evaluate, educate, and determine needs for services, explore potential resources, and help seek other funding options. The goal is to develop a plan to support the client and/or caregiver for the senior to live at home independently and safely and to prevent the caregiver from becoming overwhelmed.

Homemaking
This service helps to meet life's basic needs through light housekeeping. For information, call 678.377.4150.

In-home Respite Care
