Among the 16,000 people that call Dublin home are many senior citizens, in varying degrees of health. “The Emerald City” is reflective of the nation as a whole and across the country; the older adult population is growing more rapidly than other segments. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that more than 20 percent of Georgia’s population will be 60 and older by the year 2030, an increase of almost 34 percent from 2012. Among people turning 65 today, 69 percent will need some form of long-term care, whether in the community or in a residential care facility.

Here in the Peach State, a division of the Department of Community Health (DCH) has primary responsibility for licensing, certifying, and overseeing various health care facilities and services. Among the types of care available, there are nursing homes that admit elderly or disabled residents on medical referral, personal care homes that provide certain personal services for two or more adults who are not related to the owner or administrator by blood or marriage, and assisted living communities, which are the same as personal care homes except they serve 25 or more residents and employ certified medication aides.

Georgia contains 358 certified Medicare and Medicaid nursing homes, offering a total of 39,857 available beds for skilled nursing residents. Currently, Dublin is home to only three nursing homes:

None of the three facilities are located in a hospital and none are continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) that allow residents to move between levels of care as needed.

The overall average Medicare Five Star Quality rating for Georgia skilled nursing homes is three, which ranks 47 nationally. The overall rating is based on a combination of ratings for a health inspection, staffing hours, and quality measures (how well the nursing home cares for resident needs).
