CO-AGE Resources

The Coalition of Advocates for Georgia’s Elderly (CO-AGE) was begun and is led by the Georgia Council on Aging. The coalition is meant to be:

  • a forum to identify and address concerns of older Georgians
  • a vehicle for bringing broad-based input on aging issues from across the state

  • a diverse group of organizations, individuals, consumers and providers interested in “aging specific” and inter-generational issues

  • a unifying force communicating the importance of providing supportive communities and adequate services & programs for older Georgians

Living with Diabetes

When you are first diagnosed with diabetes, you have a lot of questions. The American Diabetes Association offers “Living with Type 2 Diabetes,” a free-12-month program for people newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Members choose to get their information online or in the mail, in English or Spanish. 

Expand Your Circles

As we age, circumstances in our lives often change. We retire from a job, friends move away or health issues convince us to eliminate or restrict driving. When changes like these occur, we may not fully realize how they will affect our ability to stay connected and engaged and how much they can impact our overall health and well-being.
We need social connection to thrive—no matter our age—but recent research shows that the negative health consequences of chronic isolation and loneliness may be especially harmful for older adults. The good news is that with greater awareness, we can take steps to maintain and strengthen our ties to family and friends, expand our social circles and become more involved in the community around us.
