Eastside Gardens

Review by Sara | Consumer

At Eastside Gardens, they had a lot of residents and played bridge with Alzheimer's patients. There was always a lot of turmoil. The staff was always mad at the manager. It was not pleasant. I liked being there for the camaraderie, which I don't have where I am now. I made some good friends while I was there for at lea...

Review by Anonymous | Consumer

Eastside Gardens was a nice, friendly place. I just wasn't impressed with the memory care facility because it didn't seem like it was well thought out. The staff was friendly. The apartment I saw was fine and suitable. The dining area was appropriate and was set up with tables, chairs, and linens.

Assisted Living Costs in Snellville

Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care survey shows that seniors in Snellville pay an average cost of $3,390 per month for assisted living. While slightly over the state average of $3,100, this is still well below the $4,000 national average. While residents in Macon ($3,484) and Gainesville ($3,500) pay more per month than Snellville residents, assisted living in the city is significantly more expensive than in surrounding areas, such as Augusta ($2,950) and Warner Robins ($2,300).

Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Snellville, so data for the closest area, Atlanta, was used.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

Similar to senior care in many states throughout the U.S., the costs of services in Snellville vary widely depending on the type of care required. At $3,390 per month, assisted living is one of the least expensive options. Only adult day health services ($1,712 ) are less costly, but they only provide limited care during daytime hours at a group center. Higher priced homemaker services and home health aides ($3,813) don’t cover the expenses usually included with assisted living such as rent, meals and utilities. Around-the-clock skilled nursing home care is the costliest option at an average of $6,753 per month.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Snellville

Medicaid in Georgia

Georgia Medicaid offers low-cost or free health care services to eligible low-income individuals across the state including pregnant women, children, seniors and people with disabilities.

Medicaid benefits include:

  • Doctors visits and emergency services
  • Inpatient and outpatient hospital visits
  • Nursing home care and hospice services
  • Prescription drugs
  • Home health services
  • Medical supplies and equipment 
  • Speech, physical and occupational therapies
  • Mental health services
  • Diagnostic and laboratory services

To qualify for long-term care through Medicaid, those aged 65 and older, or blind or disabled applicants younger than age 65, must have:

  • A maximum of $2,313 in monthly income and $2,000 in assets for an individual
  • A maximum of $4,626 in monthly income and $3,000 in assets for a married couple

Medicaid considers income from any source when evaluating eligibility, but some assets don’t count, including a home, primary vehicle, personal belongings and furnishings.

Snellville residents can apply for Medicaid online or in person at the Social Security Office at 4365 Shackleford Rd. in Norcross. For assistance, seniors can call the Right from the Start Medical Assistance Group at (877) 427-3224.

The Georgia Medicaid program offers two waivers to help seniors and people with disabilities receive long-term care in their homes or community settings. It should be noted that individuals can only participate in one of the two waiver programs.

Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment Waiver

The Service Options Using Resources in a Community Environment waiver enables eligible seniors and disabled people to receive long-term care services in a personal care home and pay a reduced rate for room and board. For 2019, the rate is $650 per month.

To qualify for SOURCE, seniors should:

  • Be receiving Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income
  • Require the level of care provided in a skilled nursing facility

Services covered by the SOURCE waiver include:

  • An assessment of medical and assistance needs and an individualized care program
  • Assisted living and personal care services
  • Home delivered meals
  • Adult day care
  • Around-the-clock access to a primary physician and case manager
  • Emergency services

Seniors in Snellville interested in participating in SOURCE can apply by calling Home and Community Based Services at (866) 552-4464.

Community Care Services Program Waiver

Also intended to help individuals avoid nursing home placement, the Community Care Services Program waiver provides the following services:

  • Care in a state-licensed personal care home and a reduced room-and-board rate of $650 per month
  • Adult day health services
  • Home delivered meals
  • Skilled nursing and therapy
  • Respite care
  • Personal support services such as housekeeping and errand assistance

To qualify for the CCSP waiver, individuals must have a functional impairment, be eligible for Medicaid or SSI and be confirmed by a doctor as requiring an intermediate level of skilled nursing care. 

Snellville seniors interested in applying for the CCSP waiver should call the Atlanta Regional Commission Aging Division at (866) 552-4464 to request an assessment.

  • Be bedridden or require a caregiver’s assistance to perform regular activities of daily living, such as eating, dressing and bathing
  • Be legally blind

These loans have terms of up to 12 months and can help pay for room and board and related move-in fees at an individual’s chosen assisted living community.

To qualify for a bridge loan, seniors with low credit scores can apply with multiple family members to improve their chance of approval. Elderlife also considers the applicant’s income and assets as well as their long-term funding plans for assisted living.
