How is the cost of a personal care home in Atlanta calculated?

We discussed costs above, but understanding how senior living costs are determined can be helpful. Personalized care is not a one-size fits all service. There will be prices everyone pays in addition to individualized fees.


Commonly called the base rate, these standard services make up about 90 percent of your monthly costs. Just like a four-star hotel, we have amenities to appease everyone:

  • Library
  • Activity room
  • Small pets welcome
  • Outdoor walking paths
  • Community computer access
  • Three daily meals and snacks
  • Barbershop and beauty salon
  • Beautifully landscaped outdoor patio
  • Private dining room for special events
  • Housekeeping, linen, and maintenance service
  • Spacious common areas to enjoy time with friends and family


The rest of your cost will correlate to the level of care you will receive. As a Pegasus Senior Living community, we include six levels of personalized care to ensure you receive the services you need and nothing you don’t. When you move in, we’ll provide an assessment to recommend the services that will benefit you.

Care services include activities of daily living assistance, various therapies, and medication management.
