Don’t let the cooling weather keep you from enjoying the many activities Atlanta and surrounding areas have to offer! We found a vast array of fun things for seniors to do this fall and winter, and we included some of the highlights below. Evidence has shown that leisure activities and socialization are critical elements of wellness, so we encourage you to nourish yourself in this way.

If you are interested in these activities or others but have transportation or mobility challenges, please contact us (404-668-0128, [email protected])! We are here to help you live your fullest life, whatever that means for you.
