ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People had a chance to provide feedback at the SOWEGA Council on Aging regarding programs and services offered to older adults and those with disabilities and caregivers.

The state is trying to help by improving service delivery and using funds wisely that best fit their needs.

We spoke to one Albany woman who attended the public hearing who says meals on wheels is a great program - one she would like to see continue to improve.

"We need to continue to have meals on wheels for people who can't get out and do things on their own and we need legal services so people can tell them what is available to them," said Mabel Boyd.

More than 100 people from surrounding communities attended the public hearing.
