Costs of independent living in the Atlanta area

The average cost of independent senior living in Atlanta is $3,623, according to A Place for Mom’s proprietary data.[01] This figure most accurately reflects what families paid in 2022 and takes into account the cost of rent, as well as any extra care costs, optional services, and fees for expenses, like the following:

  • Monthly pet fees
  • Monthly parking fees
  • Initial community entrance fee

At first, you may think it’s less expensive to continue living in your home than to move into an independent living community. An independent living community may cost more than rent at a dedicated senior apartment complex, but you’re also getting access to more services you wouldn’t otherwise have.

Think of an Atlanta independent living community as an all-inclusive resort. You’ll pay a monthly amount to live there, but it also includes various perks, such as the following:

  • Dining services
  • Housekeeping
  • Personal laundry
  • Transportation services
  • Utilities, maintenance, and landscaping
  • Social activities and community outings
  • Access to on-site amenities (fitness facilities, pools, beauty salons, lounge areas, and more)

When visiting different communities, be sure to ask about what is included in the baseline rent to avoid adding any optional services that aren’t needed or wanted. Below, you’ll find the starting costs for Atlanta independent living communities before those extra items and fees are included.

How people pay for independent living in Atlanta

Paying for an independent living community works a lot like renting an apartment, with personal funds primarily being used to foot the bill. While some resources may be available to eligible veterans, other sources of public funding like Medicare, Medicaid, and long-term care insurance are generally not available to cover rent in an independent living community. However, some medically necessary in-home care services may be covered by Medicare and Medicaid, which we detail below.

Private pay methods

Many seniors and their families will choose to dip into their personal funds to pay for an independent living community. These are often funds that have been built up over time and can include sources of retirement income, such as Social Security benefits, pensions, and an IRA or 401k.

Georgia’s tax-friendly policies make these funds especially advantageous for senior residents. The Peach State doesn’t tax Social Security benefits and has special deductions for all retirement income:

  • $35,000 for residents aged 62-64
  • $65,000 for residents age 65+[02]

Seniors who own property or have a life insurance policy may be able to use these additional options to fund a transition into an independent living community:

VA benefits for independent living in Atlanta

The Georgia Department of Veterans Services (or GDVS) has state benefits available for veterans, which include tax exemptions on military retirement income. Eligible Atlanta veterans may also be able to receive federal benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (or VA). Veterans age 65 and over can collect supplemental income through the VA’s pension program if they meet the service and financial requirements.

VA pensions

VA pension benefits are supplemental monthly income that’s paid to qualified veterans and their surviving spouses. These monthly payments can be put towards the cost of an independent living community in Atlanta. A veteran must meet VA service and financial requirements to be eligible, as well as at least one of the prerequisites:

  • The veteran must collect Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
  • The veteran must have a permanent disability, which means it’s unlikely to ever go away.
  • The veteran must be a patient in a nursing home because of a mental or physical disability.
  • The veteran must be age 65+.

Aid and Attendance

The VA Aid and Attendance benefit can provide extra monthly payments on top of a disabled veteran’s monthly pension. This add-on benefit can be used to pay for anything that helps improve a disabled veteran’s quality of life, which can include the cost of an independent living community. To qualify, veterans must already receive a VA pension, be enrolled in VA health care, and meet at least one of the requirements below:

  • Have poor eyesight
  • Need help with daily activities
  • Spend all or most of the day in bed because of an illness
  • Live in a nursing home because of a physical or cognitive disability

Housebound Allowance

The Housebound allowance is another benefit that can be added to a monthly VA pension amount for disabled, housebound veterans. This benefit is mainly intended for veterans who can’t leave their home — or independent living community in some cases — because of a permanent disability. Unlike Aid and Attendance, the Housebound allowance is specifically used to pay for in-home care services. Veterans can’t receive the Housebound allowance while also receiving Aid and Attendance.

Veterans can apply for Aid and Attendance or the Housebound allowance by completing VA Form 21-2680. Keep in mind that applying and getting approved for VA benefits can be a trying process to go through, but reaching out to local resources can help make it go much more smoothly. The Georgia Department of Veterans Services (or GDVS) provides benefit assistance services to veterans and their families. You can also utilize resources from local organizations, such as Catholic Charities of Atlanta, Veterans of Foreign War (VFW), and Disabled American Veterans (DAV).

Georgia Medicaid for independent living

Georgia’s Medicaid program can’t be used to pay for the monthly rent at an independent living community in Atlanta. Medicaid can be used to pay for home health services if a senior has a medical need for it and wants to receive care while living in the independent living community.

Georgia Medicaid’s Home and Community Based Services (or HCBS) waiver programs give eligible seniors the option to receive long-term care services in their home or independent living community rather than an institutional nursing home. Read on to learn more about what services may be available for you and how to apply for them.

Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program

The Elderly and Disabled waiver program (E&D) — previously called Community Care Services Program (CCSP) — and Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment (or SOURCE) are two of Georgia’s main Medicaid waiver programs. These programs can be used to pay for some home health services from a person’s home, which can be in an independent living community.

Both programs offer a set of standard services that may include the following:

  • In-home skilled nursing
  • Care coordination
  • Emergency response support
  • Respite care
  • Help with everyday tasks
  • Home-delivered meals[04]

You can contact the Georgia Department of Community Health or your local Area Agency on Aging below for more details about Georgia’s Medicaid waiver programs. You can find and submit applications for Medicaid and other benefits on the Georgia Gateway website.

Medicare for independent living

Medicare won’t pay for the cost to live in an Atlanta independent living community. Seniors may be able to receive Medicare-approved home health services while living in an independent living community if there’s a medical need for the services. These home health services may include the following:

  • Medical supplies and equipment
  • Occupational, speech, and physical therapy
  • Home-health aide care
  • Medical social services
  • Skilled nursing care[05]

Seniors need to already be enrolled in Medicare Part A and/or Part B and have confirmation from a doctor that they meet one of the following prerequisites:

  • The senior has a disability or illness that prevents them from leaving their home.
  • The senior needs rehabilitative therapies to treat a specific condition.
  • The senior requires constant skilled nursing care.[05]

Seniors can access free Medicare counseling through the Georgia State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) helpline. The program’s trained counselors can assist with Medicare benefits, enrollment, and financial assistance programs for out-of-pocket expenses. You can also access Medicare help by dialing 2-1-1 or by contacting your local Social Security office.

Public assistance for seniors in Atlanta

Other forms of public assistance exist besides Medicare and Medicaid. We highlight some additional options that can be used to help with the cost of an independent living community in Atlanta.

Housing vouchers

Seniors with low or fixed incomes may be eligible for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, formerly called Section 8 vouchers. Qualified low-income individuals can pay a reduced rent to live at independent living communities that accept HCV, which can’t be more than 30% of a household’s monthly income.

The remaining rent is subsidized through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and paid to the property owners through a public housing agency or another local source. Eligibility for the HCV is typically based on factors like a household’s size and income. Additionally, HCV recipients need to comply with the program’s rules:

  • Adhering to all lease terms
  • Reporting changes in income or house size
  • Keeping the unit in suitable condition

It’s always a good idea to check with an independent living community directly to make sure they participate in the HCV program. You can apply by contacting the Housing Authority for the City of Atlanta — also called “Atlanta Housing” (AH) for short — or the Atlanta Department of Community Affairs.

Social Security benefits

Some Atlanta seniors may be eligible for Social Security benefits, which is a source of supplemental income that can be put towards any cost of living expenses. There are different Social Security benefits, each with its benefits and application processes. You can find more details about these options below.

You can contact your local Social Security Administration office for help with applying for benefits.

Understand Georgia laws and regulations for independent living communities

Stand-alone independent living communities aren’t required to be licensed by the state or regularly inspected by any government entity.[06] Similar to senior apartment communities, there are certain housing and fire codes that need to be followed for safety purposes.

Communities that operate exclusively as independent living communities aren’t usually considered long-term care and don’t have the same regulations as assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing facilities. However, independent senior communities that also offer assisted living or memory care in Atlanta will likely follow these regulations established by the Georgia Department of Community Health:

  • Providing medication administration if requested
  • Developing a written care plan within 14 days of a resident’s admission
  • Providing social activities
  • Preparing a minimum of three daily meals and offering options for special dietary needs[07]

The majority of independent living communities in Atlanta will likely have an age minimum requirement of 55+ or 62+. You’ll find that most independent senior living communities will also have admission requirements to make sure a potential resident doesn’t have care needs that go beyond what the community can provide.

Resident rights in independent living communities

Similar to a relationship between a tenant and landlord, the owners of independent senior living communities have to follow building and fire safety codes to provide a safe living space. You can expect all types of senior housing in Georgia to comply with the Fair Housing Act, which prevents properties from turning renters away because of the following:

  • Family status
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Disability status

Independent senior living communities aren’t usually subject to the family status category because of the Housing for Older Persons exemption, which allows properties to meet the following guidelines to provide housing for specific age groups:

  • Housing is meant for and only occupied by residents age 55+.
  • Housing is intentionally designed to help older persons, per the state or federal program’s definition.
  • Housing is intended for and exclusively inhabited by residents age 62 and older.[08]

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) also aims to prevent housing discrimination, requiring landlords to make reasonable accommodations to a property to make it accessible to residents with disabilities. It also lets residents with disabilities make reasonable accommodations to their living spaces that help them use and enjoy their homes. Below are some examples of reasonable accommodations and modifications:

  • Wheelchair ramps
  • Widened doorways
  • Lower light switches
  • Hand rails and/or grab bars

COVID-19 regulations for Atlanta independent living communities

Atlanta independent senior living communities don’t have any COVID-19 mandates or restrictions in place as of February 2023, though some senior communities — especially those with more advanced care types — may continue to follow recommendations from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

What to expect from independent living in the Atlanta area

Independent living communities in Atlanta come in all shapes and sizes, from high-rise buildings to residential charmers. You’ll find there are plenty of independent senior living options for all lifestyles throughout Atlanta’s sprawling metro.

Georgian-style residential

Often located a few miles outside of the lively downtown area, these communities offer a quieter setting for seniors who prefer a more leisurely way of living. With grand entrances, charming brick exteriors, and pillared columns, many of these quaint communities pay homage to Georgia’s historic mansions.

Lush landscaping and foliage surround these communities, where seniors can enjoy sipping sweet tea on outdoor patios, tend to raised garden beds, and unwind in delightful sunrooms. Several communities offer group outings and day trips, as well as on-site activities like gardening clubs and wine tastings.

Upscale independent living

Resort-style independent living awaits in these Atlanta communities. These luxury communities are typically in high-rise settings with unmatched city views. Lavish, tastefully decorated interior spaces welcome all and often include grand lobbies with ornate lighting fixtures and soaring ceilings.

You’ll find premium amenities, such as full-service salons, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, and swimming pools, offered at select communities. Indulge in exquisite chef-prepared meals, with expansive menu options and international cuisines offered in many communities.

Life-plan communities

Sometimes called Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs), life plan communities provide different tiers of care services on one campus. This often includes independent and assisted living, memory care, and/or skilled nursing. This can be a popular choice for seniors who want to age in place and not worry about their care costs increasing or having to move due to illness or health decline.

A large care service fee is typically charged upfront at life plan communities, with some seniors using proceeds from the sale of a home to cover the cost. This essentially guarantees a variety of care services are available to you within the campus, if and when such services are needed.

Transportation for seniors in Atlanta

Reliable transportation is essential to maintain one’s independence in Atlanta.

Atlanta’s primary public transit system is the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, or MARTA. One of the largest public transit systems in the United States, MARTA services nearly 400,000 passengers a day in the Atlanta metro via its bus and rail routes.[11] MARTA’s Red and Gold rail lines make getting to the airport a breeze with direct routes to the MARTA station in the domestic terminal Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Seniors who are hesitant to travel on Atlanta’s public transportation alone can benefit from MARTA’s Travel Training Program. The program covers all the bases of how to navigate MARTA’s routes and travel independently. Additionally, discounted fare cards are available for seniors and Medicare cardholders that can be used on all of MARTA’s bus and rail lines.
