The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Gainesville, GA

Since its founding in the early 1800s, Gainesville has been several cities. First a mule trading post, the town became the site of Georgia's brief gold rush in the 1830s, and local seniors and their families can still pan for gold at local mines. Gainesville developed into a resort town in the 1850s, but it burned down before the Civil War. After the war, the city became a center for textile mills and, after WWII, the poultry capital of America for which there is still a heroic-looking monument on Grove St. Today, Gainesville seniors can spend a pleasant day on the walking trails and covered bridges of Wilshire Trails or take the grandchildren to pick their own treats at Cool Springs Blueberry Farm.

Over 12% of Gainesville's 41,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and over, and no fewer than 41 assisted living communities offer a safe, comfortable home for them within the city limits. Seniors in Gainesville pay an average of $3,500 a month to stay in one of these facilities, which is somewhat less than the $4,000 a month seniors pay for assisted living nationally, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. The average cost of assisted living in Georgia is $3,100.
