Financial Assistance for eldercare in Georgia

The state of Georgia has several programs intended to ease the burden of its elderly citizens in paying for their daily living needs. While Georgia's programs are not always as generous as federal programs or the programs of neighboring states, understanding these programs can provide needed assistance in seeking proper care for the elderly.

Georgia provides assisted living benefits of approximately $2,920 per month in 2018. This amount is 20% below the national average, but savings can be obtained by finding those areas in the state where the cost of assisted living is lower than other areas. Such areas include Albany, Dalton, Macon and Warner Robins. In these areas, the monthly cost of assisted living is approximately $2,170 - $2,795. Alzheimer's patients usually cost an additional $870 - $1070 per month.

Home care in Georgia usually qualifies for an hourly benefit of $18.75, which is about $2.25 below the national average. As with assisted living, the costs of home care vary from region to region. Home care is a viable option for senior citizens who only need minimal medical assistance. Adult day care in Georgia is paid at the rate of $63 per day.

In surveying the various options for elder care, a person looking for high quality of care against low payments should survey the entire state. A lawyer who is knowledgeable about special needs planning and assistance programs can provide significant assistance in finding adequate elder care. An experienced elder care attorney can provide advice about the quality and costs of various programs and can assist with admissions issues. A lawyer who handles elder care issues can also provide assistant in dealing with the various state and federal agencies that provide elder care benefits.
