    What to Consider About Memory Care in Cherokee County

    Tucked away in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains, Cherokee County is home to approximately 32,000 seniors 65 and older, some of whom have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Because the county sits further up in the state, winters can get quite cold and residents can expect a few inches of snow each year.

    There are 11 memory care facilities in Cherokee County to help accommodate the state’s 140,000 people with cognitive disabilities. These specialized units can be found in either personal care homes with at least two beds or assisted living facilities with 25 or more. Both types of homes are regulated by the Georgia Department of Community Health.

    • Seniors in Cherokee County and the state of Georgia can save on taxes at the end of the year due to the lack of state income tax on Social Security Income (SSI) benefits. The state also provides a $65,000 per person deduction on all types of retirement incomes.
    • Cherokee County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Northside Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living index in Cherokee County is based on the U.S. average of 100. Compared to the rest of the county, Cherokee County’s cost of living is nearly 18 percent higher than the U.S. average. Seniors on a budget who are paying for memory care may find it hard to make ends meet.
    • Crime in Cherokee County is lower than the national average for both violent crime and property crime.
