    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Buford

    Deemed one of the best places to retire in Georgia, Buford is located approximately an hour northeast of Atlanta along the southern end of Lake Sidney Lanier with easy access to shopping and recreational activities.

    To accommodate retirees in assisted living, there are 50 facilities in Buford and the surrounding areas, including Lawrenceville and Johns Creek. Referred to in Buford and the state of Georgia as assisted living communities, these facilities provide housing, administration of medications, food and personal care to those who need help with daily tasks. They are regulated by the Georgia Department of Community Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Buford

    • The cost of living index in Buford is 107.3, which is slightly higher than both the state and the national average of 100. This may make it more difficult for seniors paying for an assisted living facility in the city to maintain a budget.
    • Crime is based on a scale from one (low) to 100 (high). In Buford, property crime is ranked 55.0, which is higher than the national average of 38.1 and violent crime is ranked 55.3, which is also higher than the national average of 31.1. Seniors should ensure proper security measures are in place within the assisted living facility they select.
    • Seniors who can't tolerate extreme cold temperatures may appreciate the short and mild winters in Buford. Winter lows rarely drop below freezing, while summers are hot and humid with average July highs around 88.
    • The Buford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Emory at Buford and the Northeast Georgia Neighborhood Healthcare Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Gwinnett County Senior Services provides transportation for seniors who need rides to and from senior centers, medical appointments and treatments at free or reduced prices. These rides are wheelchair accessible and are available Monday through Friday on a regular basis.
    • Buford and the state of Georgia do not tax Social Security retirement benefits, which may leave seniors with more money left over at the end of the year. The state also provides a deduction of $65,000 on all types of retirement income for those age 64 and older, and there is no state inheritance or estate tax.

    Seniors in assisted living in Buford may qualify for one of the state’s two Elderly and Disabled 1915c Medicaid Waiver Programs.
