Help me help my dad find a job in ATL.

My dad, mid fifties, had an extensive career as a tire sales manager. He bounced around a few times between businesses, but was by and large successful at what he did. But then he got a back injury that prevented him from lifting tires (which he had to do in his last job) and has been out of work for almost 8 months now. He claims he can't even find a job bagging groceries now. I'm not 100% certain what he means by that, but I think he probably needs a new resume and some interview skills. What can I do to help him short of helping him revise his resume? What resources are available in the Atlanta area that might help him find a job in his field? How bad is the job market really there? I don't think he's tried the unemployment office yet, which is the obvious answer, but beyond that what else is there?
