What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lilburn

  • Although Lilburn doesn’t have a local hospital, Piedmont Eastside Medical Center in Snellville and Northside Hospital Gwinnett in Lawrenceville are less than 8 miles away. Northside Hospital is regionally ranked in Georgia and Atlanta and rated high performing in 10 adult procedures and conditions. Relevant specialties to seniors include treating heart attacks, heart failure and strokes, and performing knee and hip replacements.

  • Lilburn’s climate is wet, with an average of 53 inches of rainfall per year compared to the national average of 38 inches. However, it only receives about 1 inch of snow annually, and seniors can enjoy 219 sunny days and an average January low that’s about 10 degrees warmer than the national average.
