Costs of assisted living in the Atlanta area

The average cost of assisted living in Atlanta is about $3,850 per month for a private studio and $2,800 a month for a semi-private suite, according to A Place for Mom’s proprietary data from 2022-23.[01] This can vary based on certain factors, such as a community’s location, amenities and services offered, and the floor plan.

This average monthly rate includes rent and the following services and amenities many Atlanta assisted living communities offer:

  • Meals
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Maintenance and landscaping
  • Courtyards and common areas
  • Activities and events
  • Transportation services
  • Parking fees
  • Additional care services

You may run into some other fees at an Atlanta assisted living facility. Here’s a breakdown of some types of fees charged by communities within 25 miles of downtown Atlanta:

  • Community entrance fee
  • Monthly pet fee
  • Monthly medication fee

You can find more area starting costs — which don’t account for any add-on expenses — below.

How people pay for assisted living in Atlanta

There’s no one-size-fits-all way to pay for an Atlanta assisted living community, and there are several approaches families can take. Both private and public funding options can contribute to assisted living costs, and many families use a combination of both resources. We’ve provided several options below that may help families pay for Atlanta assisted living.

Private pay options

Private funds are often the first sources of funding families look into to pay for assisted living. Many families dip into their savings and sources of retirement income, like Social Security benefits, pensions, and IRAs or a 401k. These resources can go a long way for seniors living in the Peach State. Georgia doesn’t tax Social Security benefits and offers deductions for all pensions and retirement income:

  • $65,000 for residents ages 65+
  • $35,000 deduction for residents ages 62 to 64[02]

These sources of private funds may fully fund life at an assisted living community, depending on one’s care costs over time. If you’re concerned about private funds covering care over the long haul, consider these additional private funding options:

VA benefits for assisted living in Atlanta

Nearly 45% of Atlanta’s veteran population is age 65+.[03] Atlanta veterans may be eligible for federal benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (or VA). The VA pension provides supplemental income to low-income veterans. To qualify for a pension, a veteran must meet service and financial requirements as well as at least one of the following:

  • Live with a total, permanent disability
  • Be age 65 or older
  • Be a nursing home patient receiving skilled nursing care
  • Receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

The VA Aid and Attendance benefit is a benefit paid in addition to a veteran’s monthly pension amount, and it can be used to help pay for assisted living costs. Similar to VA pensions, Aid and Attendance is a supplementary source of income that can be put toward any assisted living expenses. A veteran must already receive a VA pension, have acknowledgment from VA health care of a disability, and meet at least one of the requirements below to be eligible:

  • Have very limited vision
  • Be bedridden or spends most of their day in bed due to illness
  • Need help with some everyday tasks, such as bathing or cooking for themselves
  • Be a nursing home patient because of a physical or cognitive impairment

The Georgia Department of Veterans Services (or GDVS) also has state benefits available for veterans, which includes tax exemptions on military retirement income.

Keep in mind that the approval process for VA benefits is complex and difficult, so it’s a good idea to reach out to a local, VA benefit assistance organization that can help you apply efficiently. You can get more information or help with the application process by contacting a local Veterans Field Service Office or the Atlanta VA Regional Office. Some local nonprofits will also host experienced volunteers to assist veterans in attaining their eligible benefits, like Catholic Charities of Atlanta.

Georgia Medicaid for assisted living

Georgia’s Medicaid program can’t be used to pay for room and board expenses in Atlanta assisted living facilities. It can be used for skilled nursing care, however, either through in-home health care agencies or within a nursing home, for patients referred by their doctor.

Home and Community Based Services

Georgia Medicaid’s Home and Community Based Services (or HCBS) waiver programs can help seniors receive long-term care services in their home or assisted living community instead of in an institutional nursing home. These waiver programs put some Medicaid requirements on hold, so that seniors can get the following care services covered in their home:

  • Care coordination
  • Home health care services
  • Emergency response systems
  • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapies

To qualify, you must be an elderly or disabled Georgian and meet the following requirements:

  • Be Medicaid eligible or would be eligible but have income and resources that exceed Medicaid’s limit
  • Require a nursing home level of care
  • Have a physical or cognitive impairment that makes it challenging to perform daily tasks or live alone
Elderly and Disabled waiver

The Elderly and Disabled waiver program (E&D) — previously called Community Care Services Program (CCSP) — offers eligible seniors the option to receive coordinated care services from their home or assisted living community. Seniors must meet the Medicaid eligibility requirements above as well as the following:

  • Be age 65+
  • Opt to receive services in a community or home setting
  • Have limitations caused by physical, intellectual, or developmental disabilities
Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment (SOURCE)

As with the E&D waiver, Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment (or SOURCE) is another Georgia Medicaid waiver program that gives seniors the option to receive certain care services in a different setting than a nursing home. In addition to the previously mentioned Medicaid eligibility requirements, seniors must also meet the following conditions:

  • Need a nursing home level of care
  • Be age 65 or older

You can only be enrolled in one waiver program at a time. Programs include the following set of core services:

  • Adult day health care services, such as skilled nursing and rehabilitative therapies
  • Personal supportive services, such as assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Respite care
  • Emergency response services
  • Care service management and coordination

You can find out more about Georgia’s Medicaid waiver programs by contacting the Georgia Department of Community Health or your local Area Agency on Aging. For those who need to apply to Medicaid, you can print out and complete an application or submit one online through Georgia Gateway — the state’s self-service website. You’ll want to have the following items on hand when applying to verify personal information:

  • Proof of residency
  • Proof of citizenship
  • Social Security number
  • Proof of income and other assets

You can find a complete guide to Georgia’s Medicaid waiver programs on the Department of Community Health’s website.

Medicare for assisted living

In general, Medicare won’t cover the costs of assisted living since the majority of the services provided in these facilities are considered custodial care, such as help with everyday tasks. There are some circumstances where Medicare may cover medically necessary care services and supplies provided by a certified health professional, which can include the following:

  • Physical, speech, and occupational therapies
  • Skilled nursing care services

So, how can you be certain what services may be covered through Medicare? The Georgia State Health Insurance Assistance Program (or SHIP) provides free Medicare counseling to help seniors make informed decisions about health care benefits and enroll in a plan that meets their specific needs. Additionally, SHIP counselors can help eligible seniors find and apply for financial assistance resources like Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) and the Extra Help (Low-Income Subsidy). These programs can help lower the cost of prescriptions and other out-of-pocket expenses for seniors with limited income.

Understand Georgia laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

Assisted living communities in Atlanta are defined as personal care homes that serve 25 or more residents.[04] These communities provide personal support services, such as help with activities of daily living (ADLs).

Atlanta assisted living communities are licensed and regulated by the Healthcare Facility Regulation Division (HFRD), which is a division within the Georgia Department of Community Health. Some of these regulations include the following:

  • All staff are required to undergo criminal history background checks.
  • Facilities must serve a minimum of three daily meals and a snack with options for special dietary requirements.
  • Upon request, assisted living communities have to provide medication administration from certified staff.
  • In the event of an evacuation, residents must be able to reach a designated safety zone in a set amount of time.
  • Communities must be adequately staffed to make sure each resident is kept comfortable, treated with dignity, and protected from avoidable injuries.[08]

Prospective-resident admission requirements

Atlanta assisted living communities must assess all potential residents before admission. Future residents must have a physical exam performed by a licensed health professional at least 30 days before they can be accepted. This physical exam must show that they can complete the following tasks:

  • Participate in the community’s social activities
  • Transfer themselves with little to no assistance[04]

In Georgia, a person can’t be admitted to an assisted living community if they meet any of the following criteria:

  • Are bedridden
  • Have active tuberculosis
  • Require nonstop medical or nursing services
  • Need the use of restraints or isolation to control behavior
  • Have specific care needs that exceed what a facility’s staff can provide[08]

Whether the care is for you or a loved one, it’s important to be familiar with Georgia’s assisted living regulations to recognize when any signs of trouble arise. The Department of Community Health’s HFRD provides a detailed document that covers all of Georgia’s rules and regulations for assisted living communities. A list of regulated facilities, inspection reports, and verified licenses can be found on the Georgia Department of Community Health’s website.

COVID-19 regulations for Atlanta assisted living facilities

As of January 2023, there weren’t any COVID-19 regulations or mandates in place for Atlanta assisted living communities. However, efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19 remain especially important for long-term care facilities like these. Many Georgia assisted living communities have continued to follow guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The recommendations below were part of the Georgia Department of Public Health’s Administrative Order to reopen long-term care facilities, which was released in October 2021. While the state of emergency was rescinded in April 2022, some assisted living facilities may still implement the measures or have stricter rules in place. It’s always a good idea to contact a community directly before visiting to make sure you’re familiar with their screening protocols and to have a mask on hand — just in case.

You can find regularly published COVID-19 status reports along with information about vaccines and local testing sites on the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and Fulton County Board of Health websites.

What to expect from assisted living in the Atlanta area

Atlanta’s bustling metro offers the best of both worlds with high-end assisted living residences in the downtown area and cozy residential options in its prosperous suburbs.

Luxury assisted living

For those seeking upscale assisted living, Atlanta has a wealth of options to choose from. Many of these boutique communities come in high-rise packages with incomparable city views and contemporary fixtures. Sitting in some of Atlanta’s most-desired neighborhoods, these chic assisted living residences resemble high-end hotels, from the exterior to the grand lobbies and tastefully decorated common areas.

A selection of communities have resort-style amenities, such as swimming pools, putting greens, and state-of-the-art fitness centers. Many offer refined dining options that feature chef-prepared meals and international cuisines, which can be enjoyed from lavish dining rooms or from the privacy of your home.

Georgian-style assisted living

Atlanta also has many quaint, homey assisted living communities. Many of these communities pay homage to traditional Georgian architecture with grand entrances, pillared columns, and brick exteriors. While still within miles of Atlanta’s thriving downtown scene, these communities provide serene retreats for seniors with outdoor patios, raised garden beds, and cheerful sunrooms.

Rather than high-rise buildings, these communities are surrounded by lush landscaping and foliage with nostalgic, homelike furnishings inside. Many of these communities also plan engaging leisurely activities ranging from gardening and cooking clubs to games and group outings.

Life plan communities

Life plan communities — also called Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) — offer a continuum of care for seniors aged 62+. This type of community offers multiple levels of care on the same campus, which can range from independent living, assisted living, and memory care to skilled nursing. These communities are growing in popularity for seniors who want to age in place without worrying about their growing costs of care.

Life plan communities typically charge a large care service fee upfront that essentially guarantees you’ll have access to a variety of care services within that campus if and when the need arises. This means you will never have to move due to illness, and your care fees are paid for in advance — ensuring you’ll be taken care of.

Assisted living with memory care

Assisted living communities that offer memory care are popular in the Atlanta metro. About 59% of partnered assisted living communities within 25 miles of downtown Atlanta are designed to accommodate residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.[01] These communities typically have dedicated memory care wings or neighborhoods, secured with enhanced safety features, such as Wander Guard technologies, to provide oversight for residents with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

While memory care residents receive the same level of care as assisted living residents, these neighborhoods also provide caregivers that can accommodate different levels of memory loss. Memory care units give residents the opportunity to receive person-centered care from staff members specially trained in dementia care. Assisted living facilities that provide memory care are also required to provide therapeutic activities that promote motor skills, socializing with peers, and sensory enrichment.

Assisted living in Atlanta’s suburbs

Atlanta’s affluent suburbs offer all of the benefits of Atlanta assisted living in a more serene setting. These locations feature ample upscale assisted living communities with palatial campuses, scenic views, and full-sized kitchens with contemporary fixtures. Seniors can enjoy indulging in resort-style amenities that include indoor pools, on-site salons, and putting greens.

You’ll find some of the most lavish assisted living communities in Buckhead, which is sometimes referred to as the “Beverly Hills of the South.” The area is distinguished for its posh boutiques and shopping districts, trendy bars and restaurants, and premier art galleries. Atlanta has several other suburbs, each with their own unique qualities and highlights. Roswell and Sandy Springs offer direct access to scenic trails and waterways, while Alpharetta is home to ample festivals, shopping, and dining.
