What to Consider About Memory Care in Canton
Canton, Georgia, has nearly 28,000 residents, roughly 12 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. In Georgia, it's projected that about 140,000 seniors are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, which is the leading cause of dementia. Families searching for memory care facilities have many memory care options in Canton. There are six memory care facilities located within the city and another nine in the surrounding area.
While some memory care facilities are independent and occupy their own building, most are located within specialized units in assisted living communities or in personal care homes and are referred to as "memory care units."
- In Georgia, Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level. While all other types of retirement income are taxable, there is a large deduction for individuals over the age of 64. This may allow for more money available in the memory care budgets of seniors living in Canton.
- Canton's cost of living is about 20 percent higher than state and national medians, primarily because of the high cost of real estate. While this may result in higher room and board fees in local memory care facilities, these costs may be offset by the city's relatively low healthcare costs, which are about 7 percent lower than the national average.
- Summers in Georgia are very hot and humid with highs near 90 degrees Fahrenheit and a muggy period that lasts from late-May to mid-September. Winters are short and cold, with lows in the mid-30s. While the summer climate may be a consideration for seniors who are sensitive to heat and humidity, the area's mild winters may appeal to families who must travel locally to visit memory care residents.
- Canton is rated to be safer than 20 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes, but its property crime and violent crime rates are quite a bit higher than those of similarly sized cities across the country. Families may wish to ensure that the memory care facility they choose for their loved one has measures to keep residents safe.
