ATLANTA — The holidays are a special time for joyous companionship. But throughout metro Atlanta, many seniors are spending this special time alone.
It's a great time for all of us to step up and brighten the lives of a lonely senior during this holiday season. Go to the Atlanta Regional Commission's Empowerline.org to reach out to a Senior Center near year.
Arrange to send a surprise gift, pay a visit, make daily calls or just do whatever it takes. At this special time of year, my Senior Source colleague Paul Sacco joins me in wishing you a joyous and wonderful holiday season.
