Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Personal Care and Assisted Living?

Often the terms Personal Care and Assisted Living can be used interchangeably. However, the main difference between Personal Care and Assisted Living services is the amount of assistance needed for your loved one.

Typically, Personal Care residences are often seen as a combination of Independent Living and Assisted Living. Personal Care residents may need assistance with activities of daily living, but still, maintain an independent lifestyle in many ways.

Assisted Living communities are the best choice for residents that require a greater level of care beyond assistance with daily living. Residents often require frequent access to healthcare services.

Who qualifies for Personal Care?

Seniors whose health or well-being requires a higher level of support or those who would benefit from a healthier lifestyle and social engagement qualify for Personal Care. Most communities conduct a health assessment that follows state regulations to determine what level of care or assistance is best for each individual.

Other Care Options

What kind of services does Personal Care provide?

Personal Care communities give older adults personalized care in a residential setting. Most Personal Care Communities – including Charter Senior Living of Edgewood – provide services that include:

  • One to three meals a day
  • Medication monitoring
  • Personal care, including dressing and bathing
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Some medical services
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Care coordination
  • Mobility assistance
  • Complimentary transportation

Some communities offer respite care or short-term stays. Additionally, some communities offer access to home care services for those who may need more assistance than is provided in the community but who are not yet ready for a skilled nursing care center.

Does Medicare pay for Personal care?

While your personal health insurance coverage continues and your pharmaceutical coverage continues, Medicare typically doesn’t pay for Personal Care.

Most Personal Care residents pay for this kind of care from their personal resources or with help from coverage provided by long-term care insurance. Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits can help cover the cost for eligible Veterans and surviving spouses who are over age 65.

What is the cost of personal care in Atlanta, GA?

The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2021 estimates the Atlanta area regional median monthly rate for personal care is $3,845, which breaks down to around $126 per day.

To put that into some context, the same survey says a private room in a nursing home will cost around $283 per day ($8,593 per month). Home health aide services average $150 per day.

Charter Senior Living of Community’s Personal Care services start at $3,300.
