What to Consider About Memory Care in Acworth
Located northwest of Atlanta, Acworth, Georgia, is a small suburban town with a population of 22,700. Although one in every 10 residents is 65 or older, Acworth has a relatively low prevalence of Alzheimer's disease. In Cobb County, it's projected that between 6.4 and 7 percent of seniors have Alzheimer's, which is similar to the remainder of Atlanta's five-county metropolitan area. Due to underreporting and an aging population, the number of dementia cases is projected to leap by 35 percent in the coming years.
The Georgia Department of Community Health and its Healthcare Facility Regulation Division regulate both assisted living communities and personal care homes.
