10 Best Nursing Homes in Atlanta, GA

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Many use “nursing home” as a broad term to refer to senior care, but there are some key differences to be mindful of to choose the most appropriate option. Nursing homes, as defined by the Georgia Department of Community Health, are facilities that provide services that include round-the-clock medical supervision, rehabilitative therapies, and skilled nursing care to patients admitted on a referral-only basis. In most cases, patients are transferred to these facilities after hospitalization or a serious health decline. Seniors that don’t need a nursing home level of care may find assisted living or memory care better suited for their needs.

A Place for Mom partners with 32 senior care facilities within 10 miles of downtown Atlanta that offer assisted living and memory care. A number of these communities also offer on-site skilled nursing care, and around 65% have access to an on-site physician.

Costs of nursing homes in the Atlanta area

The costs of senior living in Atlanta can fluctuate depending on the level of care offered, the location, and the floor plan selection. Due to the costs to provide medical support and round-the-clock supervision, the most expensive senior care facilities are usually skilled nursing homes. In 2022, Atlanta nursing homes, or skilled nursing facilities, cost an average of $8,593 per month for a private room and $7,528 a month for a semi-private room, according to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey.[03]

You’ll find other types of senior living may be more cost-friendly, if a senior doesn’t need the continuous medical care and supervision provided in a skilled nursing facility. A stay in an Atlanta assisted living facility is significantly less expensive than a skilled nursing facility with an average rate of $3,969 per month in 2022, according to our proprietary data.[02] This amount increases slightly for a memory care facility, with an average cost of around $4,144 per month in 2022.[02]

As with the nursing home costs above, the prices of Atlanta assisted living and memory care facilities can be different depending on whether you live in a one-bedroom or semi-private unit. Below, you’ll find the specific costs for both options at these communities in the Atlanta metro. You’ll notice these prices are for the starting costs, which means they don’t include amounts related to care services or any add-on amenities and fees.

Assisted living

  • Private room starting price: $3,800
  • Semi-private starting price: $2,800[02]

Memory care

  • Private room starting price: $5,220
  • Semi-private room starting price: $3,685[02]

How people pay for a nursing home in Atlanta

There are various means available to pay for senior care in Atlanta. Families often utilize a mix of private and public sources, depending on the type and amount of care needed. You’ll find some sources of public funding have specific limits when paying for specific types of senior care facilities. We highlight several private and public funding options below and lay out what specific costs may be covered.

Private pay methods in Atlanta

Many families will start by looking into what private sources of funding can be used to pay for a senior care facility. These sources often come in the form of savings accounts, investment returns, and sources of retirement income.

Georgia’s tax-friendly policies for seniors may be able to help some of these private funds go even further. Social security benefits aren’t taxed in the Peach State, and senior residents age 65+ can take a tax deduction of $65,000 for income accumulated from pensions and retirement accounts.[04]

For some, private funds may be able to fully cover the cost of a senior care facility, depending on a person’s financial situation and the level of care needed. If you feel these funds may fall short in the long run, consider one of the following options below:

VA benefits for nursing homes in Atlanta

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has some federal benefits that may be used to pay for skilled care services in a nursing home. The Georgia Department of Veterans Services (also known as GDVS) also has some state benefits available for eligible Georgia veterans, which includes skilled nursing care at one of the state’s GDVS-operated nursing homes.

There are additional VA benefits that can be used to pay for other types of senior care, if a nursing home level isn’t needed. VA pension benefits give monthly supplementary income to low-income veterans, which can pay for any cost of living expenses at a senior care facility. Veterans must meet financial and service requirements to qualify, as well as at least one of the following:

  • Receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Social Security Income (SSI)
  • Reside in a nursing home and receive skilled nursing services
  • Be age 65 or older
  • Have a total, permanent disability
Aid and Attendance benefit

Veterans with a disability receiving VA pension benefits may be eligible for extra funding through the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. This benefit is added to a veteran’s monthly pension benefit and can be put toward long-term care costs at any type of facility, which includes nursing homes, assisted living, and memory care communities. A veteran must be enrolled in VA health care, receive a VA pension, and meet a minimum of one of the following requirements to qualify for Aid and Attendance:

  • Are bedridden or spend the majority of the day in bed
  • Need some assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • Live in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility
  • Have severely impaired vision
  • Have a qualifying disability
VA benefits counseling and assistance

Applying for VA benefits can be a difficult process to navigate alone, but utilizing local resources can help things go much more smoothly. The VA Atlanta regional office, GDVS, and your local Veterans Field Service Office can be tremendous help throughout the process to help veterans and families better understand benefits and eligibility. You’ll also find local organizations available to advocate and assist veterans with the application process, like the Catholic Charities of Atlanta Veteran’s Case Management program.

Georgia Medicaid for nursing homes

Georgia’s Medicaid program can be used to cover the cost of some types of skilled care services in a senior care facility. Some services covered by Medicaid include the following:

  • Home health
  • Medical equipment
  • Nursing home services
  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital services[11]

Medicaid will pay for a stay and the care received in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility if a person is referred by their doctor and meet a nursing home level of care. To meet the required level of care, a person must have an impairment — which can be physical and/or mental — that requires nonstop nursing care or medical supervision. This type of care and monitoring is generally provided in a Medicaid-approved skilled nursing facility, but there are some Home and Community Based Services that are covered in the patient’s place of residence.

Community and Home Based Services waiver programs

Georgia’s Elderly and Disabled (E&D) Waiver Program — formerly called the Community Care Services Program (CCSP) — and Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment (SOURCE) give senior and disabled Georgians the option to receive coordinated care services at home or in a community setting instead of an institutional facility, like a nursing home or hospital. Both E&D and SOURCE waivers essentially allow the state to put Medicaid requirements on hold so that certain services can be covered in the senior’s place of residence:

  • Personal care
  • Respite care
  • Home-delivered meals
  • Adult day care
  • Alternative living services, or medically-related personal care and nursing supervision
Help with accessing Medicaid benefits

You can contact your local Area Agency on Aging or the Georgia Department of Community Health for more information about Georgia’s Medicaid and Medicaid waiver programs. If you’re interested or need to apply for Medicaid, you can apply online via the Georgia Gateway website or print out an application. When applying, you’ll be asked to verify your personal information and will need to have the following items available:

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

Medicare nursing home coverage in Atlanta

A short-term stay in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility is usually covered by Medicare if that level of care is deemed medically essential by a physician and is provided in a Medicare-certified facility. To qualify for this coverage, a person must also meet the following requirements:

  • The senior must have Medicare Part A hospital insurance and still have unused days in their benefit period.
  • The senior must have been hospitalized for at least three days.
  • The senior must need skilled nursing services due to a condition that was treated during an inpatient hospital stay or began in a skilled nursing facility.[13]

Following the three-day hospitalization prerequisite, Medicare will fully cover approved skilled nursing services for the first 20 days a person is in a nursing home. A portion of Medicare-approved expenses is covered after that, with a $200 coinsurance rate paid by the patient from day 21 up until day 100. All skilled nursing home expenses from day 101 and beyond won’t be covered through Medicare. The following are some specific Medicare-approved services and costs in a skilled nursing facility:

  • Medications
  • Medical supplies
  • A semi-private room and meals
  • Skilled nursing services
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy[13]

Medicare coverage is primarily limited to cover services that are considered skilled — meaning they are performed by licensed health care professionals. As such, most of the costs of assisted living and memory care aren’t covered aside from visits or therapies from medical professionals.

Medicare benefit assistance and counseling

Georgia has several resources available to help navigate through Medicare coverage. Seniors can get free Medicare counseling from the Georgia State Health Insurance Program (SHIP). Their counselors can help seniors discover and apply for a plan that fits their needs. They can also point out some Medicare financial assistance resources, which can help reduce the out-of-pocket costs for prescriptions and other expenses.

Georgia nursing home laws and regulations

In Atlanta, nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities are licensed and regulated by the Healthcare Facility Regulation Division (also known as HFRD), which is a branch of the Georgia Department of Community Health. HFRD is responsible for overseeing and enforcing state and federal regulations at different types of senior care facilities in Georgia.

HFRD also conducts routine nursing home inspections and may conduct them more often to investigate complaints or follow up on any previous violations found.[15] Below, you’ll find a summarized version of some of Georgia’s regulations specific to nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities.

  • All medications must be administered by licensed medical staff.
  • Upon admission, all skilled nursing patients must be referred to a facility by a physician.
  • Meals must be served no more than five hours apart, with a maximum of 14 hours between dinner and breakfast.
  • Nursing staff should be on duty at all times to provide a minimum of two hours of direct care per patient.
  • All skilled nursing facilities must have a written transfer agreement with at least one hospital, in the event a facility can’t provide adequate care.[01]

Georgia regulations for assisted living and memory care facilities

Georgia assisted living and memory care facilities are also inspected, licensed, and regulated by HFRD. However, there are some differences in the regulations for these types of facilities versus nursing homes. Specifically, regarding matters such as admission requirements, medication administration, and the care provided. These distinctions may be worth noting if you or a loved one are considering a move into an assisted living facility.

  • Medications can either be self-administered by the resident or by a qualified staff member if requested.
  • Assisted living communities can’t admit people who require continual nursing care, are bedridden, or have specific care needs a facility can’t provide.
  • Facilities with a memory care center must be designed with safety features, such as secured courtyards and automated alert systems for unattended doors.
  • All assisted living facilities have to provide orientation and annual training for all employees, and memory care staff must complete additional specialized training in dementia care annually.
  • Prospective assisted living residents must have a physical exam done with a report dated within 30 days before admission that confirms they can transfer themselves and participate in social activities.
  • For memory care admission, a physician’s report or exam that confirms a person’s diagnosis or symptoms of Alzheimer’s or other dementia must be done at least 30 days before admission.[10]

You can access all of HFRD’s laws and regulations for nursing homes, assisted living, and other health care facilities on the Georgia Department of Community Health website.

COVID-19 regulations for Atlanta nursing homes

There aren’t any statewide COVID-19 mandates in place for Atlanta nursing homes or senior care facilities, as of January 2023. However, all Georgia nursing homes are required to have infection control practices within the facility. These are outlined in the Georgia Department of Community Health Rules and Regulations for Nursing Homes.

You can find more information about COVID-19 protocols for nursing homes and other long-term care facilities in Georgia on the Department of Public Health’s website. The Fulton County Board of Health Office of Epidemiology is another excellent source for local COVID-19 guidance. Both entities regularly publish COVID-19 status reports on their websites, and you’ll also find information about local testing and vaccine resources.

The Georgia Department of Public Health (or DPH) offers COVID-19 resources for nursing homes based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). While there currently aren’t any regulations set in stone, many Atlanta nursing homes and senior care facilities continue to follow these practices:

Single icon image

Vaccinations. Nursing homes must educate residents and staff about vaccines and offer vaccine administration, but vaccines aren’t required unless a facility has to follow federal mandates to receive federal funding.

Single icon image

Masking. Residents and visitors may choose to wear face coverings while in their rooms, but facilities may require them to be worn in communal settings.

Single icon image

Facility cleanliness. Facilities should frequently disinfect high-touch surfaces and encourage hand hygiene practices.

Single icon image

Testing. Routine screening of staff, residents, and visitors may be performed at a facility’s discretion.

While the vaccines are available to Atlanta nursing home staff and residents, many facilities are still taking precautions to limit the risk and spread of COVID-19. It’s never a bad idea to check directly with a nursing home about their current infection control practices before visiting.

What to expect from nursing homes in Atlanta

Atlanta is chock-full of senior living options, with care types ranging from assisted living and memory care to skilled nursing. These communities can differ on several levels, with a key one being the type of care offered on-site.

Some Atlanta assisted living facilities may exclusively offer assisted living services, while others may also offer more extensive care services, such as memory care and on-site skilled nursing. You can find a brief description of what to expect from each type of senior care in Atlanta below.

Skilled nursing

In Georgia, a nursing home is considered a facility that provides skilled nursing services. Patients in a skilled nursing facility have complete access to comprehensive medical services and licensed health professionals around the clock.

A stay in a skilled nursing facility is usually a temporary living option to recover from hospitalization or to receive treatment. Most patients will either return to their homes or move into a different type of senior care setting — like one of the varieties listed below — if it’s no longer safe for them to live by themselves.

Assisted living

Assisted living communities in Atlanta may be an optimal care option for seniors who don’t need the round-the-clock medical care services provided at a skilled nursing facility. Assisted living communities can provide help with everyday tasks and meals, as well as personal laundry and housekeeping services. These communities can range from luxe high-rise buildings to homelike residential facilities.

Some facilities have resort-inspired amenities like swimming pools and putting greens. All assisted living facilities should have indoor and outdoor common areas for activities and exercise. And assisted living communities always provide some sort of leisurely activities, like gardening and cooking clubs. Some communities even organize off-site trips for residents to stay close to the local community happenings.

Memory care

Just about half of our in-network, partner assisted living facilities are designed to accommodate residents with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, but some communities may solely offer memory care.[02] Memory care centers are specifically designed with enhanced safety features, such as enclosed courtyards, wander prevention systems, and secured entrances.

Staff members who work directly with residents in memory care are required to receive annual specialized training in memory care in addition to a facility’s general caregiver training requirements. Additionally, memory care centers in Georgia are required to provide therapeutic activities that encourage sensory enhancement, the use of motor skills, and socialization.

Outstanding health care is one of Atlanta’s most attractive attributes for seniors and families. The city is home to some of the best hospitals in the country, nationally recognized in specialties that include cancer and neurology. We highlight some of the top hospitals in the Atlanta metro below.

Transportation for seniors in Atlanta

More than 75% of our partner Atlanta senior care facilities provide complimentary transportation services.[02] This service is particularly advantageous to residents in assisted living or memory care who might not have access to certain health services in the community and need help getting to appointments.

While public transportation can seem daunting to some seniors, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (also known as MARTA) strives to make it accessible for residents of all ages and abilities with its Travel Training Program. This program teaches seniors and people with disabilities how to use MARTA’s transit safely and independently. Additionally, MARTA also offers discounted fare cards for seniors and Medicare cardholders.

Another safe and reliable way for seniors to navigate around Atlanta is on-demand ride services through Uber Health and the Health Force of Georgia. This service is available to senior Health Force of Georgia clients, and it aims to provide convenient and affordable transportation to any type of activity. Rides are arranged and paid for by the Health Force of Georgia, and the bill is conveniently sent to clients every week.

You can access even more Atlanta senior transportation services near you by contacting Empowerline, which is part of Georgia’s Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC) network.

Whether you’re antiquing in Bennett Street District, spending a day at Ponce City Market, or indulging in Buckhead Village’s high-end designers and posh boutiques, you’re bound to find everything you need — and maybe a couple of things you don’t necessarily need — in Atlanta’s shopping scene.

Outdoor re-tree-ts
