Whether you’re searching for a retirement home for you or your parent, it’s a good idea to do your research before you choose one. Your parent or you has raised kids their whole lives; they’ve taken their time to help everyone else and now it’s time for them to enjoy their life and enjoy their time. Whether you’re looking for yourself or assisting your parent in the search, there are many options for you. Georgia has a good selection available for you and it may be hard because of all the options but at least you know options are there.
With that being said, the search for a retirement home and/ or assistance living can be a frustrating one to say the least. So I will provide some options that will hopefully at least help you in your search for the best community for you.

Baptist Retirement Communities of Georgia
Location: Decatur, GA
I listed this option but it has more than one location (Clairmont Crest in Decatur, GA; Hiawassee Park in North Georgia; lastly but not least, Palmetto Park in Palmetto, GA) so you can choose in a Christian environment if that matters to you. There are beautiful views and amenities this retirement community has to offer. Any questions or concerns you have, you can call them and ask them.
Georgia has a good size of retirement and assistance living homes available for you to choose from. You can use the internet or you can use the phone book to narrow down your options of retirement homes for you or your parent. As long as you remain patient and be specific about your location, you will no doubt find what you’re looking for.
