    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Commerce

    Located about 30 minutes north of Athens, Commerce is a small town that’s known as one of the best places to live in Jackson County. The downtown area is home to the popular Tanger Outlet Mall for seniors who enjoy shopping for deals. There’s also the Sandy Creek and Deer Trail golf courses for those who enjoy the outdoors.

    Seniors looking to retire in Commerce and who require assistance with daily living will find 17 assisted living homes in the area. Regulated by the Georgia Department of Community Health, these facilities are normally referred to as assisted living communities. They provide room and board, meals, grooming, medication administration and other personal tasks.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Commerce

    • The city of Commerce is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Northridge Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The state of Georgia doesn't tax Social Security retirement benefits, which may leave more money left at the end of the year to pay for assisted living in Commerce. The state also provides a deduction of $65,000 per person on all types of retirement income for those 64 and older.
