    What to Consider About Memory Care in Forest Park

    The population of Forest Park is about 19,823 people, including 1,900 who are aged 65 or older. In Clayton County, where Forest Park is located, 35,000 of its 285,153 Medicare beneficiaries are estimated to have Alzheimer's disease, dementia or a related condition requiring supervision in what Georgia refers to as a memory care unit.

    These facilities are licensed by the Georgia Department of Community Health, which has established regulations regarding living conditions and operating procedures for memory care facilities. One such facility is in Forest Park, and 39 more are in Atlanta and its outlying suburbs.

    • Forest Park is home to world-class medical facilities, including Wellstar Douglas Hospital and Emory Decatur Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Sperling's Comfort Index rates the city at 69 out of a possible 100. Sunny days in Forest Park outnumber the national average by 218 to 205, and the area only receives 2 inches of snow annually, as opposed to the U.S. average of 26 inches. The yearly temperatures run from 32 in winter to 89 in summer with 54 inches of rain.
    • Forest Park's cost of living is 88.2, which is more than 11 points lower than the U.S. average rating of 100, and its rating for housing costs is dramatically lower (35) than the state's (92) or the country's (100) ratings. Healthcare in Forest Park is also a little lower than average, so choosing a memory care unit here could save money.
    • State tax laws are quite favorable to people aged 65 and older, whose Social Security dividends and first $65,000 of annual income earned post-retirement are exempt from taxes. Property tax exemptions are also offered to seniors, and the state sales tax is only 4 percent. However, localities can bump that up by as much as 4.9 percent to 8.9. Seniors on a fixed income may find more money in their purse in Forest Park to spend on healthcare.
