What to Consider About Assisted Living in Dublin

The Georgia Department of Community Health’s Healthcare Facility Regulation oversees assisted living facilities in Dublin and throughout the state. Inspections and licensing of all types of personal care homes fall under HFR’s responsibilities. The office also monitors these facilities and investigates complaints brought against them.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dublin

  • Seniors in Dublin benefit from Georgia’s generous tax exemptions for retirement income, including Social Security income and Railroad Retirement benefits. The state also exempts most other types of retirement income up to $65,000 for singles or $130,000 for couples who are aged 65 or older.
  • Although the statewide sales tax is 4%, local jurisdictions are allowed to add up to 4.9%. However, the average combined total is 7.33%. As a result, county sales taxes in Laurens County are higher than nearly 99% of other cities and counties in Georgia. It adds a 3% county tax and a 1% special district tax to the 4% state tax. This means residents in Dublin pay a total sales tax rate of 8%, but groceries are exempt from state taxes, and prescription drugs are exempt from all sales taxes.
  • Despite its higher sales tax rate, Dublin has a much lower cost of living compared to both the state and national averages at 13% lower than the state’s and 20% lower than the national average. Although health care is 25% higher than the national average, housing costs are nearly 50% lower, transportation is almost 30% lower, miscellaneous expenses are 9% lower and groceries are 5% lower.
  • Dublin has a relatively rainy climate with about 47 inches of rainfall annually compared to the national average of 38 inches. However, the city gets zero snow, and residents enjoy about 220 sunny days a year. The most pleasant months in Dublin are April, May and October, but July can get hot with an average high of 93 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters can also get cold with an average low in January of 34 degrees.
  • Seniors in Dublin benefit from both the Carl Vinson VA Medical Center and the full-service Fairview Hospital within the city limits. Dublin also offers a vast array of primary and specialty care physicians, including 53 providers at the VA medical center and 171 at Fairview.
