    What to Consider About Memory Care in Carroll County

    Located at the southern border of the Appalachian Mountains, Carroll County includes the city of Carrollton, which is noted as one of the best cities to retire in Georgia. As a result, there are over 15,000 seniors who call the county home, some of whom have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

    Home to two memory care facilities, Carroll County helps provide care to a fraction of the 140,000 people in the state with cognitive impairments. These facilities are memory care units located within an assisted living community or personal care home. They are regulated by the Georgia Department of Community Health.

    • While there are a few cities in Carroll County, like Temple and Mount Zion, that are relatively safe, the overall rate of crime for the area is greater than both the state and national average. Families with seniors living in memory care units in the area may want to inquire about the types of security measures used to keep residents safe.
    • Carroll County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Tanner Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Georgia’s seniors, including those in Carroll County, get special tax breaks on retirement incomes. While the state does have an income tax, it provides a $65,000 deduction for seniors 64 and older on all types of retirement income. The state also does not tax social security income benefits (SSI).
    • Over the course of the year, the average temperatures in Carroll County range from 30 to 88 degrees. In winter, the county rarely gets any snow, which may be good for seniors in memory care who enjoy being outdoors.
