Assisted Living in Athens, Georgia

Athens is a small city in Georgia with a population of just over 125,000 people. It has a lower percentage of seniors than the national average despite its warm summers, mild winters and low snowfall levels. The city is known for its rich Southern and antebellum history, and it’s home to national landmarks such as the Colonial-style Joseph Henry Lumpkin House and the Civil War-era Double-Barreled Cannon. Residents can take advantage of unique outdoor attractions, such as the State Botanical Garden of Georgia and the Tree That Owns Itself, a historic tree said to own the land around it.

Assisted living in Athens costs an average of $3,500 per month, although actual prices can vary depending on location and the range of amenities available. While this price is significantly lower than the state average, retirement in Athens is made even more affordable by senior-friendly tax laws.
