What to Consider About Memory Care in Cartersville

The Georgia Department of Community Health, Healthcare Facility Regulation Division monitors and licenses memory care communities in Cartersville and throughout the state. The agency offers legal guidance and expertise to ensure facility compliance, as well as resources, including provider information and inspection reports, to help seniors and their families make informed care decisions. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Cartersville

 

  • Cartersville has low violent crime but high property crime rates compared to U.S. figures. Based on a 100-point index, the city ranks at 15.4 for violent crime and 64.8 for property crime, while national scores rank at 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. However, memory care communities utilize security measures to enhance resident safety. 

 

 

  • Cartersville's cost of living falls 4% below the national norm, offering lower average prices for housing, transportation and utilities. Memory care communities typically offer fixed rates for services including housing, meals and cognitive activities, which can further reduce monthly expenses. 

 

  • Cartersville's health care costs rank higher than the national average. Based on a 100-point index, Cartersville scores at 100.8 for an 8% increase. The city also has 92 local physicians per 100,000 residents, which falls lower than the U.S. average of 210 physicians. Fortunately, memory care communities provide 24-hour nursing care for a fixed monthly rate and often employ licensed physicians. 

 

  • Georgia offers numerous tax benefits for seniors. The state doesn't tax Social Security benefits and partially taxes retirement account withdrawals and pension income. Additionally, it offers a maximum deduction of $65,000 per person aged 65 and older on all types of retirement income, which residents can use to help pay for memory care. 

 

  • Cartersville experiences hot summers and short, cold winters, with year-round temperatures ranging from 33 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit. Late spring and early fall present the best weather for outdoor recreation, but memory care communities offer indoor amenities and activities to keep residents engaged during unpleasant weather. 

Paying For Memory Care in Cartersville
