What to Consider About Memory Care in Coffee County

Coffee County, Georgia, is home to 43,014 people, 5,674 of whom are age 65 or older, the age group most susceptible to Alzheimer's disease. These figures are projected to be far higher by 2025 as the state's senior population swells from 140,000 to 190,000 and the disease grows proportionately with it.

Alzheimer's patients may require the attention of an assisted living facility that specializes in caring for those with dementia. The Georgia Department of Community Health licenses, regulates and inspects memory care units that concentrate on supervision and treatment of patients with cognitive impairments. Two of these units are in Coffee County.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Coffee County's cost of living is rated at 78.7, which is 20 percent lower than the state and national averages of 100. The housing rating of 43 is very low, while healthcare is 14 points higher than the national ranking, at 114. Extra money that can be saved from the low housing expense could be used for healthcare fees.
  • Sperling's Comfort Index gives Coffee County a 72 out of 100 due to its pleasant weather. Annually, the area has an average of 220 sunny days, 48 inches of rain and zero inches of snowfall. Mild winters and summers with average temperatures from 37 to 93 make the county attractive to seniors with painful joints or diseases such as lung cancer or asthma.
  • The crime rate in Coffee County is a bit higher than normal in the United States. Violent crime rates a 59.3 compared to the national average of 31.1, and property crimes are greater than the norm of 38.1, at 55.3. Residents of memory care units have extra security, including auto-locking doors, security cameras and guards. Families should still ask about the safety measures at any prospective care facility.
  • Georgia is among the most lenient states regarding tax laws for people aged 65 and older. Social Security payments and pension funds are exempt from taxation as is the first $65,000 seniors in that age group earn after retiring. Some property is exempt from taxation also. A low sales tax helps stretch a family's budget, which can help those in Coffee who are getting by on a fixed income.
