Conyers is a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, the largest metro area in the state. It’s known for the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival, an annual event popular for residents and tourists alike, and it’s close enough to the Atlanta city center for people to quickly access the international airport or some of the world-class hospitals and health care facilities, including the Emory University Hospital and Medical Care system. The population of Conyers is just 17,000, and 12% of these individuals are 65 years old or older. 

Many Conyers seniors may be considering their long-term care options, including assisted living, which averages $4,000 per month, which is on par with the national average of $4,300. These long-term care homes feature private apartments and professional caregivers staffed around the clock for seniors who may need mobility assistance or help with the tasks of daily living. Meals are included, and many facilities have a robust schedule of social events. 

This guide covers the cost of assisted living in Conyers and nearby cities, plus an overview of the benefits and drawbacks of retiring here. There is also a list of free resources in the area for seniors and their families.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Conyers

Assisted living communities in Conyers, as in all of Georgia, are licensed and regulated by the Georgia Department of Community Health. Licensure depends on the facility passing regular inspections for cleanliness and livability. In addition to the condition of the facility itself, the certification and professional licensure of all staff members, including nursing staff, is also verified. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Conyers

  • Georgia is fairly tax-friendly toward retirees, as there is no state income tax on Social Security income. Retirees further benefit from Georgia’s deduction of up to $65,000 for other types of retirement income. In addition, the state sales tax and property tax rates are fairly moderate, and residents don’t have to worry about estate or inheritance taxes. 
  • The cost of living in Conyers is 93.9, slightly lower than the national median of 100. Housing costs are quite low, just 70.2, which may positively affect the operations cost of assisted living communities. Health care (94.2) and grocery costs (94), also important to budget-conscious seniors, are both a little less than the national average. 
  • As part of the greater Atlanta metro area, Conyers shares the city’s designation as a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. The AARP evaluates cities across the country on how amenable they are for senior citizens. The agency considers aspects such as accessibility of resources and programs that benefit the elderly and the overall quality of life. 
  • The annual BestPlaces Comfort Index for Conyers is 7.5/10, meaning it’s more comfortable climate-wise than many other places in Georgia. Summers here are warm and sunny, with July high temperatures averaging 90 degrees and 213 days of sunshine per year. Winters are mild, with an average of about an inch or so of snow each year and January lows of 31. 
  • Property crime rates are nearly double the national average, 74.6 compared to 35.4. Violent crime rates are also higher than the national average, 35.9 compared to 22.7, although assisted living communities are secure, with staff awake 24-7. 
  • Although Conyers has fewer physicians per 100,000 residents than the national average, 151 compared to 210, residents have access to several world-class hospitals and medical centers in the greater Atlanta area, including Grady Hospital and Piedmont Healthcare

Paying for Assisted Living in Conyers

Conyers assisted living fees average $4,000 per month, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey. This is a few hundred dollars less than the U.S. average of $4,300 per month but higher than the Georgia state average of $3,500. 

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities

Conyers is the most expensive city for assisted living, compared to other major Georgia cities. Macon is the least expensive, $2,730 per month. Columbus ($3,650), Savannah ($3,500) and Augusta ($3,090) are also less per month than Conyers.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Assisted living isn’t the only option for elder care in Conyers. Many seniors may choose to age in place at home, hiring homemaker services ($4,147) or a home health aide ($4,195) to help with personal care and tasks of daily living or light medical care in their homes. People who only need extra help during the weekday may opt for adult day care services ($1,300), which offer care similar to assisted living, without the residency option. Seniors who require a higher level of care than assisted living provides may be best served with nursing home care, $6,950 per month for a semi-private room and $7,559 for a private one.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Conyers

Two key state programs provide Medicaid-eligible seniors help with the cost of care: Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment (SOURCE) and the Community Care Services Program (CCSP).

More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

  • Veterans Benefits
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Long-Term Care Insurance
  • Reverse Mortgage

Many of these programs offer one-on-one counseling and assistance to locate the right fit for assisted living and help with the transition into long-term care housing.
