What to Consider About Assisted Living in Macon

Macon is "Where Soul Lives" thanks to ancient Indian mounds, an Italian   Renaissance revival mansion, a rock and roll history tour and the largest collection of African American cultural artifacts.  

Macon is home to 19 assisted living facilities with an additional 12 located a reasonable distance from the city to serve the senior population — almost 17 percent. Assisted living facilities in Macon and elsewhere in Georgia offer professional assistance that includes activities associated with daily living. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Macon

  • The cost of living in Macon is 17 percent lower than the national average and 13 percent lower than the overall cost of living in the state.

  • The city of Macon is home to world-class medical facilities, including Navicent Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • The Macon-Bibb County Transit Authority operates reliable bus lines in and around Macon. Eligible seniors also have access to the authority’s Paratransit Service. Seniors aged 62 and older pay reduced fares to ride. 

  • Macon has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Middle Georgia Community Action Agency, an organization that provides social services for area residents. There are also eight other regional senior centers.

  • While Macon attracts many seniors to its assisted living communities, it must be noted that the city as a whole suffers from a crime rate that is nearly double the national average. Macon’s crime rate also exceeds Georgia’s state average for crime. Annually, the national crime rate average is 2,837; in Macon, that number increases to 5,512.

  • Macon summers are hot and humid with temperatures averaging 94 degrees in July. Some seniors with respiratory problems may find summers difficult. Macon winters are mild with temperatures rarely venturing below freezing. The average temperature for January is 47 degrees.
