AgeWell Atlanta was created to offer assistance-finding resources for older adults. Through a unique collaborative partnership, four Atlanta Jewish agencies—Aviv Older Adult Services of Jewish Family & Career Services, Jewish HomeLife, Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA), and Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta—provide a continuum of support services, crucial resources, and programming for older adults across Atlanta.
In the summer of 2022, Marla called 1-866-AgeWell, requesting help for a dear friend, Sophia, who was demonstrating signs of potential cognitive impairment. AgeWell’s Concierge spoke both to Marla and then to Sophia, helping them identify and connect with needed services. In addition, the concierge invited the friends to attend the first post-pandemic, in-person Senior Day at MJCCA. Because they did not live near the JCC, the Concierge encouraged them to take advantage of the group transportation provided.
The friends arrived together for their very first Senior Day, and the next day Marla sent this letter: “Thank you for your assistance finding services in a time of difficulty and for encouraging us to come out today to participate in Senior Day. I am so grateful for the important services that AgeWell offers and to know that this resource exists in our community.”
AgeWell is excited to offer another in-person Senior Day at MJCCA on Monday, April 17 from 9:30AM to 2:00PM. Transportation will be provided. Participants can enjoy classes in Aqua Fit, Tai Chi, Israeli music, and native plants, hear from guest speaker Rabbi Wahlberg, and enjoy lunch together. For more information, click here.
