Georgia Council 

on Aging

Working to improve the

quality of life for older Georgians through public policy

October CO-AGE Meeting

The October CO-AGE meeting was held at the Lanier Charter Career Academy on Thursday, October 24th in Gainesville, Georgia. See pictures below.


Atlanta Journal Constitution reporters spent nearly a year looking into the quality of care provided by some of Georgia's assisted living communities and personal care homes. What they discovered helps to shed light on the importance of GCOA's 2020 priority to strengthen personal care homes and assisted living communities requirements in Georgia. See below for links to stories, editorials, and GCOA responses. 

July CO-AGE Meeting

The Georgia Council on Aging held the July CO-AGE Meeting in Macon, GA on July 11 at the Methodist Home for Children and Youth. Over 120 advocates attended to hear presentations on nine potential CO-AGE issues for 2020. GCOA also honored their Legislator of the Year, Rep John LaHood (R-Valdosta).  There were many familiar faces and plenty of new participants!
