What to Consider About Memory Care in Camilla
Camilla, Georgia, is a small town near the Florida panhandle with a population of 5,360 people, including more than 800 who are aged 65 or older, the most common age group for Alzheimer's disease. Georgia has 140,000 senior residents, and that figure is expected to reach 190,000 by 2025.

The Georgia Department of Community Health licenses these units and supervises patient conditions and each facility's operating procedures. Camilla has one memory care unit.
