    What to Consider About Memory Care in Buford

    According to the Alzheimer's Association Georgia Chapter, there are currently 140,000 Georgia residents living with Alzheimer's disease. By 2025, that number is expected to increase by nearly 40 percent. This disease is primarily diagnosed in those age 65 and over, a demographic that makes up about 12 percent of Buford's 15,000 residents.

    There are nearly two dozen memory care facilities in the Buford area, some of which are independent and others which are located in memory care units in assisted living facilities. Buford proper is home to three memory care facilities, and 18 more are in nearby cities like Johns Creek, Suwanee and Lawrenceville.

    • In Georgia, Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level, and while all other types of retirement income are taxable, seniors over the age of 64 can claim a large deduction to offset the expense. This may allow for more money in the memory care budget for seniors in Buford.
    • Buford's air quality may be a consideration for families whose senior loved one has a condition that is made worse by pollution. The American Lung Association gave Gwinnett County an F for ozone pollution and a B for short-term particle pollution. 
    • Buford is rated safer than 41 percent of U.S. cities of all population sizes and 56 percent of other cities in the state. When compared to other U.S. cities of similar size, Buford's overall crime rate is on par with other communities. Property crime here is above average, and the violent crime rate is roughly the same here as it is in the country as a whole. Even so, families may want to review the safety measures taken by their loved ones' memory care facilities. 
    • While the overall cost of living in Buford is a little higher than the U.S. average, healthcare expenses in this city run about 10 percent lower here than in the nation as a whole. This may leave more money in the memory care budget.
