ATLANTA — With Atlanta's senior population growing by double digits each year, a key dilemma for seniors who cannot drive is getting from here to there for doctor appointments, senior center events and even grocery shopping. 

Metro Atlanta counties are stepping up with programs designed to keep seniors on the move.

DeKalb's volunteer and free iCare program takes a thousand residents a year.Diane Dawson of Clarkston uses iCare once a month.

"They stay with you; curbside service and very, very nice. Its so cool.I love it, I love it," she said.

There are many choices for seniors throughout Metro Atlanta.  Go to your County of residence and call or access the appropriate websites for details:
