The community is already scheduling additional speakers in the coming months, and everyone involved is looking forward to being a greater resource to those who live in the area. Our goal is to ensure a fulfilling life for our residents and to partner with families in Grayson and around Atlanta,” said Julia Banks, Regional Community Relations Director. “If we can help to alleviate stress that our seniors and their families are experiencing and answer questions for them, then we have done our job.”
