    What to Consider About Memory Care in Bibb County

    Bibb County is a consolidated city-county with Macon as the county seat, which is why it's sometimes called Macon-Bibbs. The population is 152,663 with nearly 21,000 seniors aged 65 and above in the group most likely to develop Alzheimer's disease or some other cognitive impairment.

    The Georgia Department of Community Health licenses and governs assisted living facilities as memory care units that specialize in watching over patients needing extra attention. Six of these facilities are in the Macon-Bibb area.

    • Residents aged 65 and older enjoy the lenient Georgia tax laws for seniors. Social Security and pension income aren't taxed, and exemptions are also available for property taxes. The first $65,000 earned annually by seniors isn't taxed as well, which can mean families have extra cash to spend on healthcare.
    • Sperling's Comfort Index for the county is 69, where 100 stands for beautiful daily weather. Annual rainfall is 48 inches, and Bibb County has 219 sunny days per year, which is 14 days above the U.S. average. In summer, high temperatures reach 92 degrees, and January lows remain above freezing at 34. Seniors with painful joints or lung disease, such as asthma or lung cancer, may benefit from the mild climate.
    • Violent crime is rated 78 on a scale of one to 100 with 100 being the highest and one being the lowest amount of crime. Property crime is also higher in Bibb County than other cities in the U.S. at 67 as opposed to 38.1. Families might want to ask staff about security measures they have in place to protect their residents like auto-locking doors, security cameras and staffed entries.
    • Bibb County's cost of living rating is 82.4 on a scale where the nation's median cost of living is 100. Housing is quite low at 48, which is 60 points below the national average, and any money saved from the low-cost housing can be applied to healthcare, which runs about even with the rest of the country.
