How Do You Pay For Assisted Living in Georgia?

Care in a Georgia assisted living community is typically paid for by a resident’s private funds (e.g. savings, 401(k), pension, Social Security, etc.), long-term care insurance, and in some cases, VA benefits.

Georgia Medicaid offers an Aged, Blind, and Disabled Program to assist individuals who are 65 and older, legally blind, or disabled in finding appropriate healthcare options.
