Decatur’s Lifelong Community Coordinator Lee Ann Harvey shares the following: 

Decatur’s Lifelong Community Advisory Board is excited to pass along information about the Atlanta Regional Commission’s (ARC) “Living Beyond Expectations” campaign. A 30-minute video of a PBA 30 (PBS) broadcast that aired last week is available here. This is a wonderful way to learn about a Lifelong Community and how it makes us a better community by helping residents age successfully in the city that they love. The broadcast features Kathryn Lawler, Manager of Aging and Health Resources, Atlanta Regional Commission, and Monica Pearson, retired news anchor, WSB-TV. Find out how the bubble of Baby Boomers reaching 65 and their increased life expectancy will affect how you and the community cope with living beyond expectations and how to prepare for it.

This broadcast kicks of the ARC’s efforts to bring together people of all ages in order to plan for the future. PBA 30 will continue to spotlight this effort by broadcasting a series of positive aging vignettes over the next six months.
