    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 number of people diagnosed with dementia could rise proportionately during that time as well, and many of them will eventually need to move into a memory care unit.

    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.

    • Sperling's Comfort Index for Camilla is 74 out of 100, with 100 being the best weather possible. The U.S. average rating is 54, which is based on how many temperate days with low humidity occur per year. Camilla gets 13 more inches of rain per year than the national average, and the city has 228 sunny days as opposed to 205. It never snows, and the temperatures average a balmy 38 in winter and 92 in the summer. This is fine weather for older people who may have painful joints and appreciate the warmth.

    • Georgia's state tax laws are very generous to people aged 65 and older. Social Security dividends and the initial $65,000 of income earned each year post-retirement are exempt from taxes, and property tax exemptions are also available. The state sales tax is only 4 percent, but counties and municipalities can increase it by as much as 4.9 percent.
    • The U.S. average rating for violent crime is 31.1 while Camilla's is 55.5. The property crime rate in the city is 51.0, and the national average is 38.1, so Camilla has more crime than the average U.S. city. Memory care units have security measures in place to keep residents safe; however, families should still find out prospective facilities' security policies and procedures.
