About Atlanta:

Atlanta Area Advantages:

  • Mild, 4 season climate 
  • Near big city jobs, entertainment, dining and shopping 
  • The Office on Aging in Atlanta has been busy making life easier and fun for seniors in the Atlanta metropolitan area--this means lots to do and see for cultural and recreational pursuits.  
  • One of the few metropolitan areas covered by Kaiser Permanente (see locations).
  • Surrounding areas include many beautiful lakes and reservoirs for fishing, boating, and camping. 
  • Some areas have views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
  • Lake Lanier and Lake Oconee, some of the most popular U.S. lakes, are  near Atlanta. 

The Atlanta Office on Aging has a great Interactive Map to find facilities for seniors.  You can find a city and then see what is around it in libraries, senior centers, assisted living, parks and more.  The intention is to have Lifelong communities where everyone can age well in those neighborhoods.
