    What to Consider About Memory Care in Austell

    Austell is a small town with a population of 7,215, of whom 6.9 percent are 65 or older. Many of those seniors or the estimated 70,000 elderly people in Cobb County, where Austell is located, may have Alzheimer's disease and could benefit from treatment in a memory care unit.

    Memory care units are under the jurisdiction of the Georgia Department of Community Health, which regulates, licenses and inspects them. Only one memory care facility is located in Austell, but 17 more are in the surrounding communities.

    • The air in Austell is medium quality. It scored a "D" for ozone pollution, but it received a "B" for particle pollution from the American Lung Association. While it is not entirely unacceptable, the air quality can cause problems for anybody with asthma, lung cancer or C/V disease. This should be a consideration when selecting a memory care unit for a loved one.
    • State tax laws are very friendly to people aged 65 and above whose Social Security payments, retirement pensions and the first $65,000 of income earned annually after retirement are exempt from taxes. Property tax exemptions are also available to seniors, and the low sales tax of 4 percent might enable those on a fixed income to spend more on healthcare.
    • Austell's cost of living is almost equal to the U.S. and state of Georgia average of 100 at 102. Housing is very low at 78, which is lower than the national average and Georgia's norm. Healthcare is nearly 10 points less than U.S. figures and five points lower than the state. The savings on healthcare could enable families to afford care that was out-of-reach previously.
    • Sperling's Comfort Index for Austell is 66 out of 100, which is 12 points higher than the national norm of 54. Wintry lows are 31, and summertime highs reach 88 with 220 sunny days every year. Annual rainfall is 53 inches, as opposed to 39 for the country. Austell's pleasant weather can ease painful joints and respiratory conditions for older patients.
