Assisted living communities offer residents extra assistance and peace of mind thanks to helpful caregivers who are ready to help round the clock. Ensure you find a community that has the support you need now and in the future by asking if they have specialized assistance for seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia if you have a recent diagnosis. Or, ask if caregivers can provide even more support if you have a chronic condition that is expected to progress over the coming years.

We are here to offer a few things to consider as you begin your search for assisted living in Atlanta. When you can narrow down your choices, you’ll be able to make a more confident decision about your next retirement steps.

Location, Location, Location

If you or your loved one wants to call Atlanta home, begin by making a list of a few neighborhoods or nearby suburbs that would be ideal locations. Consider neighborhoods that are close to family and friends, or that make for an easy commute to favorite spots and physician appointments.

Choosing a convenient location can make family visits easier for everyone, so ensure your list of neighborhoods you love includes those that are closest to family. Hate to leave a favorite neighborhood but decide you must? Your new assisted living community will also feature a calendar full of trips to local spots, so be sure to suggest your favorite old-neighborhood spots, and the community will plan a visit.

Activities and Dining

Speaking of trips, one major benefit of assisted living in Atlanta is the easy access to a carefully curated activity calendar. Residents can enjoy events like live music concerts in the courtyard, yoga classes down the hall, or even history lectures right on-site. Exceptional communities have an entire department dedicated to providing residents with activities that are designed to enhance whole-person wellness.

After all that activity, you’ll be sure to have worked up an appetite. Fortunately, assisted living communities serve meals that are nothing like the stereotypical hospital food many envision. Instead, exceptional communities carefully hire classically trained chefs to choose eclectic menus featuring a variety of comfort food favorites and global fare. Even better, you get to enjoy multiple entree choices three times daily when you gather with your friends in the dining room.

Have special dining needs? Look for an assisted living community that has a specialized program to ensure your specific nutritional needs are met without sacrificing quality or flavor.

Additional Support

Assisted living communities offer residents extra assistance and peace of mind thanks to helpful caregivers who are ready to help round the clock. Ensure you find a community that has the support you need now and in the future by asking if they have specialized assistance for seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia if you have a recent diagnosis. Or, ask if caregivers can provide even more support if you have a chronic condition that is expected to progress over the coming years.

Luxury Lifestyle

You deserve a retirement full of luxury amenities, benefits, and perks. Don’t skimp by choosing a community that doesn’t meet your expectations. Instead, look for one that has useful amenities like housekeeping visits, laundry services, and transportation access. You can even find communities that have concierge services and are pet friendly; don’t settle until you find one that checks all of your boxes.
