Snellville is a Gwinnett County city about 45 minutes northeast of Atlanta. Seniors may like its small town charms, such as the award-winning Snellville Farmers Market and numerous local events, including movies in the park and the Snellville Fall Festival. There are also plenty of boutiques and specialty shops, so seniors who like unique items may appreciate what’s available.
According to the 2020 Census, 15.7% of Snellville’s almost 21,000 residents are seniors. Despite its small size, the city is home to the high-performing Eastside Medical Center, and health care is typically more affordable than in other Georgian cities. Violent crime is lower too, which may bring peace of mind to families and caregivers considering Snellville for a loved one.
The 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey reveals Snellville’s median fee for assisted living is $3,845 per month. This is more costly than Georgia’s average of $3,535, so families may find they have to pay more in this region. However, the national average is higher, at $4,500, so seniors coming from out-of-state may find they save on costs — depending on their state of origin.
