    What to Consider About Memory Care in Brunswick

    Brunswick's Glynn County boasts a population of about 85,000, and nearly 20 percent of those residents are ages 65 and older. Some of these seniors may be among the 140,000 Georgia residents living with Alzheimer's disease, as reported by the Alzheimer's Association. These seniors in need of specialized care may want to live in one of Brunswick's three memory care facilities.

    The Georgia Department of Community Health oversees assisted living facilities, which include memory care facilities, in Georgia. All facilities must obtain a health care facility regulation license, which ensures that they provide adequate services to residents. This level of oversight can give seniors and their families peace of mind as they consider memory care assistance in Brunswick.

    • Brunswick is a coastal town in Southeast Georgia that delivers year-round moderate temperatures. Winter lows drop to the 40s, and summer highs exceed 90 degrees. The area sees no snow but more rainfall than the national average. However, it sees more sunny days as well, which seniors seeking moderate weather can appreciate.
    • Seniors' families may want to consider Brunswick's cost of living, which is below the national average, when budgeting for memory care facility expenses. Its cost of living of 90.1 is below the national average of 100, and housing costs are especially low. 
    • Another financial factor to consider is Georgia's tax benefits for seniors. The state does not tax social security income. It also offers a $65,000 tax deduction on all types of retirement income for seniors over age 64.
    • Crime rates in Brunswick are high. On a scale where one represents the safest city and 100 the most dangerous, Brunswick's violent crime rate is 92.1 and property crime rate is 90.3.
