What to Consider About Memory Care in Fayette County

Fayette County offers a quiet community approximately an hour southwest of Atlanta with a senior population of around 20,000, some of whom have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Making up just a fraction of the 140,000 individuals in Georgia with cognitive impairments, these seniors have a choice of three memory care facilities in Peachtree City and Fayetteville.

The facilities are regulated by the Georgia Department of Community Health and are most commonly known as specialized units within an assisted living facility or personal care home. They provide a variety of services, including medication administration, grooming, housekeeping and meals.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Fayette County is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Fayette County Hospital and the Northside Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors in Fayette County and the state of Georgia may enjoy more money left at the end of the year due to the lack of state income tax on Social Security Income (SSI) benefits. There is also a $65,000 per person deduction on all types of retirement income.
  • The cost of living in Fayette County is lower than the national average and that of downtown Atlanta. This makes the cost of groceries, healthcare, housing and other goods and services less expensive for seniors on a budget who are paying for memory care.
  • Average temperatures in Fayette County range from 89 degrees in July to 32 degrees in January with approximately 50 inches of rain and less than two inches of snow. Summers are hot and humid which may make it difficult for seniors who enjoy being outside, but winters are short and mild, which may be ideal to those sensitive to the cold.
