At some point, nearly two-thirds of Americans will need help with daily living activities such as dressing, bathing or walking, reports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Some will ultimately move into an assisted living residence. With the continued aging of our population, good eldercare options are critical. The state of Georgia is no exception; it has the ninth fastest-growing 60+ year-old population and the eighteenth fastest-growing 85+ year-old population in the U.S., says the Georgia Department of Human Services.

Citizens considering a move to a Georgia assisted living center, either for themselves or for their loved ones, have access to a multitude of public resources that can help make the decision easier. State agencies, non-profits and watchdog organizations provide assistance so you can learn about Georgia assisted living options. Here is a list of resources providing information on all aspects of assisted living and  other important eldercare issues.

Georgia State Agency – the Department of Human Services, Division of Aging

The largest and most comprehensive state agency, the Georgia Department of Human Services, Division of Aging Services (DAS), provides a statewide system of senior citizen services.
