Aging in Atlanta

November 1, 2016

Agencies that work with seniors are noticing a growing trend: whether by choice or circumstances, more older Americans are aging alone. The number of people who are growing old alone is expected to increase as America grays.By 2030, one in five residents in the Atlanta region will be over 60, experts say. And according to the 2010 census, people ages 45 to 64 make up the fastest-growing segment in the Atlanta region, showing the greatest percentage increase between 2000 and 2010.
