2021 Top Georgia Senior Living Communities

When it’s time to consider a senior living community for yourself or a loved one good enough is rarely, well, good enough. You want the best in comfort, amenities, and services but there are so many options now. Choosing the best fit can be an overwhelming, time consuming task. What level of care is needed, what services should I look for?

We set out to determine what the top senior living facilities were in popular areas in Georgia. We started our list in some of the most sought after areas in the state. There are 15 top communities that made our list, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t more great communities in the Peach State. Don’t see your city here? Contact us and let us know or search our senior living directory.

Tip for Choosing a Georgia Senior Living Community: Location
How close your loved is to you shouldn’t be the only factor when deciding where they’ll stay. Proximity to their primary care physician, specialists they see frequently, and hospitals should all be relatively close. Does the facility have transportation, or will you have to pick them up take them to appointments? Make sure you know the level of your involvement before settling on a place.

Ranking The Best Senior Living in Georgia

How did we rank the best senior living facilities in Georgia? We combined reviews from multiple websites including Google, Facebook, and other senior living websites across Georgia. Then we made sure that the facility did not have any outstanding compliance violations or complaints with the Georgia Department of Community Health.

Finally we wanted to make sure the living and care was affordable for most people. The average cost for assisted living in Georgia is $3,100. This includes housing, most meals and basic services and amenities. Memory care and nursing home providers can be much more, but provide a much higher level of care. Many of these communities are competitive with the average cost for senior living in the state. After all, what good is a community if you can’t afford to live there.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Legacy Ridge at Marietta:

The staff at Legacy Ridge are caring and genuine. The front desk is manned by employees who will take the time to tell you how your family member is really doing, and a funny thing they said that week. Adam, the Executive Director, makes it a priority to keep the residents safe, and is quick to respond to any question or concern. Thank you, Legacy Ridge, for taking such good care of my uncle.

The Rosewood at Fort Oglethorpe GA

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Rosewood at Fort Oglethorpe:

The rooms were always clean, employees were cheerful and attentive. Medications were given on time, meals were timely and residents were encouraged to communicate with one another. Much like family settings. Residents are attended to in every situation. Employees know all their names. I have never heard shouting or witnessed any demeaning behavior. My friend like all residents go through an adjustment period, he was sure he would be leaving and going home.

The care and communication the staff showed has now made him feel at home. He shares he is happy and content and seldom speaks of moving. I would venture to guess it would be very disruptive to move him out of Rosewood. Many positive things stand out to me, but one thing in particular. When speaking to those residents in wheelchairs, personnel stoop down to speak eye to eye.

There are so many little things that make a house a home, and my friend is not in a facility, but he is in his Home. One other thing the staff was always at my side throughout the adjustment period. I too had an adjustment period. Every call was answered. My fear of leaving a friend with folks I did not know quickly passed. It’s true, there is no place like home, and Rosewood is Home. My thanks to the staff.

Marietta Life Center Atlanta St GA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Marietta Life Center:

I have never taken the time to review a business before however the fantastic job Marietta Living Center has done deserves mention. My Mother in law needed an assisted living provider about 6 months ago. I searched several locations near the Marietta area and placed her in another home. After only a few weeks it was apparent it was not going to work out. I contacted Ana at Marietta Living at the suggestion of a saleswoman at a nearby store where I was buying a powerlift chair for my Mother in law.

Ana invited me to come by that day and take a tour of the facility, and I did. Upon meeting Ana I was immediately struck by her sincere and caring attitude about the residents there and how this facility seemed to have a charm and just felt soo much more like home than the other facility. I asked several residents if they enjoyed living there and everyone said yes, a good sign. Ana and the rest of the staff have done a remarkable job caring for my Mother in law and I highly recommend you consider calling Ana and see for yourself. Ana runs the place like each resident is her own family and that is very difficult to find these days. I give Ana and Marietta Living a 10 for the great job they do.

Vickery Rose Retirement Resort Roswell GA

What residents and loved ones have to say about Vickery Rose Retirement Resort:

We chose Vickery Rose for my sister, she just loves everything about it. The layout is really good, and the people who both work and live there are really nice and caring people. Her apartment looks great, I think she’s the first one to live in that apartment. They have a game room, there’s a puzzle room where they do a lot of puzzles, and they enjoy the theater very much. We have been there a couple of times and had dinner with her. The dining room was really nice, they had really good food and my sister likes it a lot. The staff is great, it’s a nice community, and it’s a very good value for the money.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Silverleaf Memory Care of Athens:

My husband was at Silverleaf for over three years. The staff was excellent, for the most part, and really seemed to care about him as well as for him. The food was good and the residents really seemed to like it. Activities were appropriate and my husband enjoyed many of them. The supervisor for each shift was very good about calling me if there was a problem or if my husband needed anything. Silverleaf might not suit everybody, but worked very well for my husband.

My mother lived in a Lanier Gardens apartment and later transitioned to a personal care apartment in Talmage Terrace. We could not have been happier with her decision to move there. She felt at home, made many new friends, and enjoyed her continued independence. And when the time came to transition to the personal care apartment, she received wonderful care from a circle of dedicated caregivers. Mary Garrison

What residents and loved ones have to say about Linwood Estates Gracious Retirement Living:

A dear friend of mine, Janice Burch, has lived at Linwood Estates for almost a year and a half. I have had personal experiences with family at other independent living and assisted living facilities, Linwood far exceeds those experiences. Cathie and Joel Wilson work tirelessly to maintain a clean and beautiful environment. During this time of COVID-19 they have managed to maintain cleanliness and a calm throughout the community. The staff is amazing and everyone always has a kind word to exchange. There is always something going on and residents can do as much as they want. Lastly, the food is delicious and presented in a comfortable restaurant style manner.

The Bridge At Lawrenceville GA

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Bridge at Lawrenceville:

My grandmother had to stay at this assisted living facility while recovering from a broken hip bone. I can honestly say that this was exactly what I was looking for as a grandson who cared about his grandmother. The people who cared for my grandmother were very accepting and cared for her diabetes flawlessly. Many people in the past have had a difficult time caring for my grandmother because she has to take insulin everyday.

My grandmother always was happy with the food as well as the activities that this place provided. I would go in about once a week and see my grandmother. The facilities were so nice, especially compared to what I was expecting. The nurses were always so kind to me also. As I walked in one of the ladies got to know me and would have an in depth conversation to me about how my grandmother had been over the past week along with how my life was going. As my comments above have said, this place is definitely worth a look.
