Here is Why You Should Consider Assisted Living in Fulton County Georgia

Fulton county is the most populous county in Georgia, with more than a million residents. It’s also geographically diverse, extending from the heart of downtown and midtown Atlanta and up into the Alpharetta suburbs. With so many options for entertainment, so many different places and ways to live, and easy access to a veritable cornucopia of resources, it’s also a great place to live. As the nation’s most rapidly aging city, Atlanta is a great place to meet, network, and form lasting relationships with other seniors. Here’s why assisted living in Fulton county might be the perfect choice.

What Fulton Offers Seniors

Fulton is a large, diverse county. The southern region of the county extends into Atlanta, with easy access to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Ballet, Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, hundreds of restaurants, Woodruff Arts Center, and posh malls such as Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square. Don’t forget to stop by the world-renowned Center for Civil and Human Rights, or visit Charis Books & More, the southeast’s oldest independent bookstore.

For many seniors, the hustle and bustle — not to mention traffic — of Atlanta proper is too much. North Fulton, including Alpharetta, offers a break. The city is still just a quick ride down 400 away, but the suburbs offer a quieter, more peaceful life. North Fulton offers a wide range of living options, from sprawling suburban developments to quiet rural enclaves. Nature lovers will delight in visiting Old Mill Park or Wills Park. Plant aficionados can take in the largest selection of orchids in the southeast at Rainbeau Orchids. Love shopping? Head to Northpoint Mall.

Benefits of Assisted Living

Assisted living in a quiet suburb near a bustling city offers the best of both worlds: great weekend trips, something to hold the grandkids’ attention, and a quiet place to call home. Assisted living offers help with daily activities such as bathing, grooming, and making food. The goal is to maximize your independence, prolong your health, and ensure you have a safe and thriving community where you can explore old interests and form new ones.

Assisted living may be right for you if you live alone and no longer drive, feel anxious about the possibility that you might fall or otherwise be hurt, or struggle with daily tasks.
