    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Madison

    Listed as one of the eight great towns in Georgia to retire, Madison is a small city about an hour east of Atlanta. Madison is also well known as the city General Sherman refused to burn during the Civil War as he made his infamous March to the Sea because of its beauty.

    Seniors who want to retire in a small, historic town will find 11 assisted living communities in the area. These facilities are regulated by the Georgia Department of Health Services and they offer room and board, meals, planned activities and daily assistance.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Madison

    • The city of Madison is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Morgan Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies and illness.
    • For seniors in assisted living, Morgan County Transit provides transportation for errands, outings and medical appointments. Rides are available at a flat rate and scheduled rides should be made by 4:45 PM the previous day.
    • The cost of living index in Madison is 104.9, which is slightly higher than the national average and the state average of 100. Seniors paying for assisted living may need to budget wisely when paying bills and other expenses.
    • Like most cities in the southeast, Madison has hot and humid summers with average July highs around 90 degrees. This may be a problem for seniors with respiratory issues or those who are sensitive to the heat. Winters are short and cold with average temperatures that rarely drop below freezing.
    • The overall crime rate in Madison is 66 percent higher than the national average. Most assisted living communities have security measures in place to keep their residents safe. 
    • The city of Madison is a tax-friendly place for seniors to retire. The state of Georgia offers a $65,000 tax deduction for retirement incomes of all types and does not tax Social Security benefits. This may leave more money left over at the end of the year for seniors paying for assisted living.
