Can I Afford Independent Living or a Personal Care Home in Atlanta?

What is the cost of living in an assisted living facility? Surprisingly less than you’d think. At an independent living and personal care home community in northern Atlanta like Dunwoody Place, the cost comes down to two simple things: hospitality and healthcare.

How much does independent living in Atlanta cost?

Time is a valuable currency, and independent living is all about maximizing your time of independence. Seniors in Georgia benefit from monthly costs lower than the national average.

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey compares costs of assisted living facilities across the country. As of May 2021, the national mean came in at $4300 per month. Georgia residents can take advantage of averages around $3500. What’s even better, independent living is cheaper than assisted living.
