Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

Helping seniors as caregivers maintain a productive life.

FACS Extension provides educational resources to help seniors and their caregivers understand the changes of aging and plan for maintaining wellness and providing caregiving as needed.

Seniors (generally defined as persons age 65 and older) are the fastest-growing age group in Georgia, the US and the world. These changes have tremendous implications for senior caregiving by families and communities, as well as for comfortable housing options, financial security, and wellness.
