Assisted Living Tidbits
Gwinnett County has a very complete and active senior services department to help and assisted Gwinnett County's aging and retired population. The Senior Services Department offers a wide variety of incredibly useful programs and services, which are all designed to help improve the quality of life, and to foster independence among Gwinnett County seniors.
In addition, the services provided are intended to help those who may have assumed the role of caregiver for a senior member of their family.
Among the services offered, Gwinnett County offers a Meals on Wheels program. This program is designed to help seniors who are unable to leave their home, or who are unable to make their own meals. This is a very valuable service to seniors who wish to remain at home, instead of moving into an assisted living or long term care facility.
Housekeeping services are also available, to help seniors with the routine cleaning and housework that they may not be able to do on their own.
Caregivers often times suffer from exhaustion and burnout while taking care of a family member or loved one. Gwinnett County offers an "In-Home" respite care program that is designed to offer a break to caregivers, allowing them rest, and to tend to their own personal needs.
The County also offers a transportation program that exists to assists seniors who need help getting to and from appointments, senior centers and activities, and more.
To find out more about the senior programs offered to residents of Gwinnett County, Lawrenceville, and other towns within the county, please visit the Senior Services Page.
Lawrenceville has a good Senior Center that acts as a common meeting space for seniors to enjoy activities, classes, games, and socializing. The Center also provides lunch during the weekdays, and also frequently hosts guests from within the county and community to entertain, or speak on a wide variety of topics, including medical issues, financial issues, long term care issues, and anything else that might be useful and of interest to seniors.

Excellent questions we have received about Azaria Personal Care Home, and about assisted living (these questions may serve as examples of the types of questions you may ask your facility/administrator):
Is your home just for elderly? We have 28 year old mentally disabled daughter ,if not yours any suggestions for the area would be appreciated!
